Scottish Football Transfer News: Rangers to have to pay 'significant' fee for target, Celtic defender mulls over future, Hibs boss on Martin Boyle interest, ex-Ibrox striker in-demand

The 1-1 draw means there are now just five points between the top five with Killie missing the chance to go top due to Ross Docherty’s late equaliser which frustrated new Rugby Park boss Derek McInnes.

He said: "Overall on the performance we're glad to come away with a point, but when you're in a winning position with so little time left you're disappointed not to take all three.”

Meanwhile, Ian McCall was left baffled by Nick Walsh’s decision to award Killie a penalty after Richard Foster was adjudged to have handled, ca;ling it a “shocker”.

"I don't know what Richard is meant to do,” he said. “His hand is not in an unnatural position. It's at the side of his body.”

Twenty eight other teams in action this afternoon, as well as the Lowland and Highland League.

The Premiership has to wait until Monday when the top tier resumes after the rescheduled winter break with Celtic hosting Hibs.

It will coincide with fans returning to crowds without restrictions on numbers after the Scottish Government revealed they were lifting the controls put in place on large-scale outdoor events.

There will likely be transfer deals done over the weekend ahead of the return of the Premiership with St Mirren the only club so far not to make a signing.
