Scottish Football Deadline Day LIVE: Aaron Ramsey in Glasgow for Rangers move, Celtic send two out on loan – Aberdeen benefit, Hearts reject THIRD Souttar bid, Hibs want Man City starlet, McAtee update, when does Scotland’s transfer window shut


Celtic and Hearts made inroads before the New Year with the former announcing a triple signing from the J-League, while the latter added Australian wing-back Nathaniel Atkinson.

It was a portent for a very busy start to the transfer window with Premiership clubs having taken an early winter break due to the restrictions placed on crowds. The rescheduled pause allowed teams to focus on bringing in players they resumed action in the middle of January.

There will be a focus on Rangers and their pursuit of John Souttar. The Hearts centre-back has signed a pre-contract agreement to join the Ibrox side in the summer but they may return with a second offer to bring the defender in this month, especially having shipped three goals against Ross County.

Across the city, it will likely be about those departing Celtic, while Hearts, Hibs and Aberdeen are all likely to be looking at forward players. The Dons will also be looking to hold on to teenage star Calvin Ramsay.

We will have all the latest transfer news and speculation throughout the day.
