Difference between 'rumour' and 'speculation'

In the context of this forum, what is the accepted difference between rumour and speculation?

I have wondered this. In a formal setting I imagine that rumour is where the source claims to have inside information from someone involved whereas speculation is where they have nothing but a logical hunch to go by.

Rumour - "A source close to the player has told me that Lionel Messi is due to sign for Crystal Palace"
Speculation - "It is believed that Lionel Messi is due to sign for Crystal Palace"

It is about toast, it is to spread rumours but speculation is harder to spread than frozen butter

I know a ‘suggestion’ is a waste of time.
