Rangers 'want' US international, €9m Celtic target for sale, 3 English clubs eye £4m Aberdeen star, Craig Gordon interest, Dundee's Cummings wanted by A-League side - Scottish Football Transfer News

Just one Scottish Championship fixture survived on Wednesday night with Kilmarnock dropping points in the promotion fight, drawing 1-1 with bottom of the table Greenock Morton at Rugby Park.

In League One, Airdrieonians secured a big three points with a 1-0 win over Queens Park which keeps the pressure on Cove Rangers and Montrose.

With on field action, it is all about the lower leagues in Scotland as the cinch Premiership clubs are currently in their winter before before returning in the middle of January.

The prospect of full capacities being back in grounds by the time of the top-flight restart is doubted by many fans. Deputy First Minister John Swinney played down any timescales when asked about the Old Firm game due to be played at Parkhead on February 2.

“Well that’s a long way off, the 2nd of February, so we’ll take that as it comes,” he said.

“What I would say is that the government doesn’t want to have these restrictions in place a moment longer than they are necessary.”

Meanwhile, First Minster Nicola Sturgeon admitted she hoped these restrictions wouldn’t be around for long.

She said: "It's not easy, nobody wants to be in this position but these are the reasons why the Scottish Government - in common with many other governments - have taken these decisions and hopefully they will not last for very long."

One thing which will attract plenty of interest in the coming weeks is the transfer window which opens in a matter of days.
