BBC Scotland are reporting that Celtic have made an official bid for John McGinn, with Scott Allan possibly going to Easter Road in return. The broadcaster also claim St Mirren will be due one third of any fee Hibs earn from the transfer.

According to the Edinburgh Evening News, Steven Naismith will return to Hearts on loan for another season. The former Scotland international has one year remaining on his contract at Norwich.

John Hartson has tried to justify last week’s claim that Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata was worth £50 million. In his Evening Times column, the former Celtic striker writes: “Footballers are like houses in that they are only worth what people are prepared to pay. The transfer market is so ridiculously inflated that hardly anyone bats an eye at £50m for a centre-half. That was my point.”
