Deadline day: Final countdown before transfer window slams shut for Premiership sides SNS Group

Scottish Premiership sides have less than 24 hours left to secure anymore new signings before the January transfer window closes.

Several teams throughout the country are expected to conclude deals for incomings and outgoings before the midnight deadline.

It is the last opportunity for clubs to register new players to their squad for the rest of the season that finishes with the Scottish Cup at the start of June.

League leaders Celtic did most of their business early in the window with the triple-signing of Yuki Kobayashi, Alistair Johnston and Tomoki Iwata.

Last week they also added South Korea striker Hyeongyu Oh to the squad as they look to secure their second Premiership title in a row.

So it’s looking unlikely that Ange Postecoglou will get any more new faces in before the deadline, however there still could be some outgoings with Giorgos Giakoumakis in particular expected to complete his move to MLS side Atlanta.

Rangers manager Michael Beale revealed on Monday that they are closing in on a deal for Standard Liege midfielder Nicolas Raskin, however a potential move for Swansea City player Morgan Whittaker looks to be dead in the water.

The Ibrox side have had a much quieter window than their city rival with Todd Cantwell from Norwich their only signing so far.

The 24-year-old midfielder impressed fans on Saturday when he made his debut in the 2-0 win over St Johnstone at Ibrox.
