ST MIRREN, Livingston and Dundee United have all joined the hunt for Aaron Pressley.
The forward – son of former Rangers, Hearts and Celtic defender Steven – is available at Brentford.
Pressley, 21, has impressed on loan at AFC Wimbledon and then Accrington Stanley for the past two seasons.
And there’s keen interest in the 1.80m hitman from the lower English leagues.
Wycombe, Cambridge, Cheltenham and Stockport are all in the hunt for a deal.
But three Scottish sides, including relegated United – another of his father’s old clubs – are also in the game.
Saints and Livi are also keen, but it’s understood Pressley prefers to stay in the South.
He scored eight goals for Accrington but failed to save them from relegation to the Second Division.
Brentford is willing to do business for free but is going through a resale agreement.
Papa Steven remains the only player in Scottish football to have won the Scottish Cup with three different teams.
Elvis won the famous trophy with the Rangers, Hearts and Celtic.
But he revealed earlier this year that when Neil Lennon signed with the Hoops in 2006, he didn’t even want to SHAKE hands.
He said: “On my first day, I got on the bus and shook everyone’s hands.”
“Neil Lennon refused to shake my hand.
“He was pretty serious — it’s not like he’s messing with me.”
“I think Neil was someone who liked to test you a little but we became good teammates and I really like him.”
“I saw a lot of things in Neil that I saw in myself, but he did it and I accepted it.”
“We had some real fights, some words on the field.
“Once there was a spitting incident between Rudi Skacel and Neil and I think I defended Rudi to the utmost.”
Meanwhile, the Hearts lost their first preseason game of the summer 1-0 to Championship newcomers Plymouth Argyle.
But the Jambos were able to welcome Liam Boyce and Beni Beningime back to the squad following their recent injury woes, with both playing the final 15 minutes of the game.
