Griffiths to Dundee latest
Dundee boss James McPake held his cards close to his chest over a potential move for Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths. After the Motherwell clash he said: "I've been linked with move for a lot of players. The transfer window is getting ready to shut and I'll be linked with a move for maybe three, four, five or six players. I'm not going to stand and say what we're looking for but, yes, we're hoping to do business."

Hibs near signing
Jack Ross is on the verge of adding Nathan Wood to his Hibs squad. The Middlesbrough defender watched the team defeat Livingston at Easter Road on Saturday and is expected to complete his loan move on Monday. Ross also revealed he is keen to add at least one more attacking player before the close of the window on Tuesday night. He said: “Jamie Murphy’s injury may determine whether we do more than one or who that might be. We are getting to the end of the window but, certainly, one more would help us.”
Odsonne Edouard is set to leave Celtic before the end of the transfer window. Five clubs from around Europe are after the French striker – Everton, Crystal Palace, Bordeaux, Rubin Kazan and Brighton. However, manager Ange Postecoglou revealed he has no issues about playing Edouard against Rangers even if it was to be his farewell game. The Celtic boss said: “No one can tell me they are watching Odsonne play at the moment and say he is not giving everything. You know there is no hesitation whatsoever for me to select him on Sunday.”
