Scottish Football Transfers: Rangers eye Leeds United star, Hibs want Celtic starlet, Postecoglou in Old Firm blow, Aston Villa plan ex-Hearts ace move

It is a big day in the SPFL with the exception of the cinch Premiership. There was meant to be a Celtic v Rangers Old Firm derby at Parkhead. However, with the top-flight bringing the winter break forward due to capacity restrictions there are no top tier fixtures.

Yet, there is the small matter of a Fife derby with Raith Rovers hosting Dunfermline Athletic at Stark’s Park. It is a big match at both ends of the table with Riath pushing for the title as the Pars try and get out of a relegation battle.

Arbroath host Inverness CT in another huge match as first take on second. There will be the aded intrigue with the Smokies leading the division as a part-time side.

All three of League One title chasers are in action, while there is a clash between the underachievers with Falkirk travelling to Alloa. In League Two Kelty Hearts will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face bottom-of-the-table Cowdenbeath.

For the Premiership clubs, plenty of interest has fallen on the January transfer market with the window having opened yesterday. Celtic, Hearts and St Johnstone have already done business going into the month with a busy period expected.

It will be a surprise if none of the 12 teams sign at least one player. St Mirren are keen to add pace, Rangers have been linked with wingers, Shaun Maloney will want to bring in players to suit his style, while Dundee United will be keen to add Tony Watt in this window from Motherwell.
