In what is one of the most drawn out Viking sagas I've read, St Johnstone have finally confirmed that Eetu Vertainen has signed from Helsinki. The player arrived in Scotland over 2 weeks ago but various bits of paper remain incomplete although he has now signed a two year deal.

Hamilton Accies goalkeeper Jamie Smith has been loaned to non league Broomhill FC

Hibernian have signed Dylan Tait from Raith Rovers on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee. The 19-year-old midfielder will be loaned back to the Scottish Championship side until January

Motherwell youngster Max Johnston has linked up his dad - Rangers hero Allan Johnston - at Queen of the South. Doonhamers boss Johnston has brought his 17-year-old son south on a season loan

Ross County defender Tom Grivosti has joined Elgin City on a loan deal until January.

Ryan Shanley's loan from Hibs to Edinburgh city has been converted to a perm deal.

Inverness Caley Thistle have cancelled Harry Nicolson's loan to Elgin after they didn't play him and sent him to Clach for the season instead. Robbie Thompson and Lewis Nicolson are also on loan there.

Jamie Semple's move from Motherwell to East Fife is confirmed as a perm deal rather than a loan, 1 year contract

These players released by Scottish clubs (should all be in previous posts) have pitched up at non-league / junior sides so can be deleted or kept as frees: Greig Spence, Ryan Watters Josh McConville, Kyle Sneddon, Abdul Osman, Jack Leighfield.

Hearts loan Euan Henderson to Alloa for the season

Matthew Elsdon has been handed a perm one year deal at Clyde after impressing on the month to month contract mentioned above

Lee Hodson is back in Scottish football as the full-back completes a return to Kilmarnock. The Northern Ireland international was a free agent after leaving Gillingham, and has signed a one-year deal at Rugby Park.

Despite the transfer window being shut, Stenhousemuir still managed to bring in their 22nd summer signing, Michael Miller on loan from Ayr United. However this spree has not been without its failures; Craig Reid, signing #17, has been released already.

Dumbarton have attempted to keep pace with Stenhousemuir, and their twentieth signing of the window was Brechin GK, Patrick O'Neil.

Ciaran Dickson has joined Celtic B having been released by Rangers in the summer.

Hoping Nathan is improved again for the new update to reflect his ever growing reputation with 3 probably 4 Scotland caps come Tuesday and how well regarded he is outwith Scotland given Everton had a 5 million and then a 8 million bid rejected for him last week.

Falkirk Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of striker Michael Ruth on a season long loan deal from Aberdeen FC

Hibs winger Stevie Bradley has signed a new 3 year deal with the club and joined Ayr United on loan for the season

Rising talents Cameron Harper and Roddy MacGregor have signed two-year contract extensions with Championship leaders Caley Thistle. They are now both signed until summer 24, ie 3 years total on their deals.

The below is a master list of *most* of the transfers that have taken place in Scotland this window; missing anyone who was freed or went to a foreign / non league club, plus the Rangers B transfers. Everyone on it should be in posts above but useful as a quick checklist:

Ayr United can confirm that we today have parted company with Manager, David Hopkin. Jim Duffy, John Joyce, Dave Timmins and Derek Stillie continue in their coaching roles for now. Spare a thought for Steven Bradley, brought in on loan for the season from Hibs just a couple of days before by the outgoing manager

Brechin confirm the signing of Kevin McHattie after leaving Inverness CT at the end of last season. One year deal

Well there will be some tasty gossip in the bars of Glasgow about this... Dominic McKay has stepped down as Celtic's chief executive after just two months for personal reasons.

Efe Ambrose signs on at st Johnstone for a year

The manager / coaching staff at Clach are out of date; they are non-league so I would suggest just deleting the people there, but if you want to do any updating, latest coaching team is here: https://clachfc.co.uk/coaches.php

Probably best to put Ciaran Dickson (Celtic B) into an injury / suspension hiatus whilst we await the outcome of this: https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/s ... ilkington/
Ongoing legal case so no further discussion on this please; I'll update if Celtic make any announcement like Man City did with Mendy.

Hibs dof Graeme Mathie leaves the club. Unemployed scout.

Single figure workrate for Dom Thomas (Dunfermline) who has been dropped for not tracking back.

I thought the transfer window shut some time ago but it seems not: Kieran Ngwenya has tonight joined Scottish League Two side Kelty Hearts FC on loan for the 2021/22 season. Malawi international from Aberdeen

Dundee youngster Finlay Robertson has joined Cove Rangers on loan until January. Should be in dB as has played quite a few times for Dundee first team

Peterhead have signed former Elgin City full back David Wilson on a two-year deal

Celtic captain Callum McGregor has signed a five-year contract extension. Set ambition to single figures, ensure loyalty at 18+ and likes club, at 28 this effective rules him out of a premiership move despite repeated rumours Rodgers would take him to Leicester.
