Scottish Football Transfer News: Celtic interest in wanted striker, Rangers striker leaves on loan, Hearts midfielder’s loan exit, VAR cost
The league is fiercely competitive with three points separating Celtic and Rangers in the title race and two points between St Johnstone and Dundee in the relegation battle.
Hearts are the only team without any strong competition. They are 18 points behind second-placed Rangers and 11 points behind fourth-placed Hibs.
It is the middle of the championship which is the most competitive. Between fourth and tenth, there are only five points. With Livingston hosting Dundee United and Motherwell facing Ross County on Wednesday, it could easily change the dynamic of what is now a mini-league within the division. What makes things more exciting is that there are just five matches left – six for St Mirren – until the split.
The middle of the week also sees a big game in the Championship title chase with Arbroath playing their in-hand match at home against Partick Thistle, while the Challenge Cup semi-finals take place.
All of this will be played as a mere backdrop to the ongoing war in Ukraine. The Scottish FA announced their support for the country on Monday and offered to help in any way they can for the World Cup play-offs due to take place later this month at Hampden Park.
