There are now less than 48 hours before the 2023/24 Scottish Premiership season kicks off with Celtic getting the campaign underway at home to Ross County.
Hearts are in action on Saturday as they head to McDiarmid Park to take on St Johnstone while Hibs are set to host St Mirren at Easter Road on Sunday. Meanwhile, the summer transfer window will be open till the end of the month so there is still plenty of time for deals to be done.
One Rangers player seems to be edging closer and closer to the Ibrox exit door and could earn Michael Beale’s side a decent transfer fee when he does. Meanwhile, a Celtic midfielder also appears to be heading for new pastures and Aberdeen are apparently close to securing yet another summer signing.
