The rumour mill - December 7, 2021

Celtic could make £10m loan permanent, Rangers star fulfils promise, Sutton Ibrox block 'unbecoming', Hearts' Halkett wanted : SPFL Premiership rumour mill

It's the most wonderful time of the year says Andy Williams, and the legendary singer was clearly a fan of football deals because the rumour mill is winding up ahead of the transfer window opening.

January is a little over three weeks way and that means the start of trading, deals and signings – but not only that, the time-frame means the speculation season is well and truly upon us.

Rumour, gossip and transfer talk is well underway with the market beginning to move shortly and Scottish clubs are already in the thick of it which English clubs suggested as potential venues for Premiership players and the managers aren’t finished yet.

As more movement on the merry go round down south took place last night there could still be a domino effect that trails north into the cinch… and further down the SPFL pyramis there is also managerial news too.

Of course, there’s many more stories making the headlines in and around Scotland - not just in the wheeling and dealing.

Here is a look around the headlines, as well as the gossip and rumours making the news on Tuesday, December 7, 2021.
