Scottish Football Transfers: Celtic and Rangers 'target' contract update, Ibrox duo set for new deal talks, Dundee to appoint new manager, Aberdeen look at managers with Champions League experience

It has been a busy week off the field in Scottish football with four mangers leaving their respective posts.

Starting on Sunday, Stephen Glass was sacked by Aberdeen following a poor run of form culminating in fans expressing their anger after a 2-1 defeat to Motherwell at Fir Park in the Scottish Cup fifth round. Barry Robson was in interim charge for the midweek draw with St Johnstone.

The Dons have been poring over potential candidates which include Jim Goodwin and Jack Ross.

On the same day Queen of the South parted company with Allan Johnston with the Doonhamers. The club are currently four points adrift at the bottom of the Championship table.

It as when then the turn of League One but this time it wasn’t a sacking. Barry Ferguson took the decision to leave Alloa Athletic despite only being appointed at the start of the campaign. They lost 3-1 to East Fife at the weekend, a defeat which leaves the Wasps looking over their shoulder in eighth.

And then, Wednesday afternoon, the news broke that Dundee had sacked James McPake. He had been under pressure but then won his last two matches. Still, it wasn't enough with the Dens Park club keen on experience to take them to safety.

Focus switches back to on-field matters this evening as Celtic and Rangers return to European action in the Conference League and Europa League respectively.
