Scottish League One ins and outs - summer 2014

Scottish League One's lucrative season with Rangers on board hasn't yet translated into clubs filtering the money into the transfer market this summer.

But, while the turnstiles won't be spinning quite so often and television interest will all but disappear, the title race itself will almost certainly be more competitive.

Relegated Greenock Morton and last year's runners-up, Dunfermline Athletic, who missed out on promotion after play-off defeat in May, must start as favourites down to their full-time status.

New Morton manager Jim Duffy has laid down the gauntlet to his opponents with the addition of several players with top-flight experience, including Conor Pepper, the midfielder who exited Inverness Caledonian Thistle, and striker Andrew Barrowman, who has switched to Cappielow from Livingston along with playmaker David Robertson.

Callum Morris has left Dunfermline Athletic for Dundee United

Morton and Dunfermline are among the clubs to have raided Airdrieonians, who have lost a fair chunk of the squad that lifted them from the bottom of the table to within a whisker of qualifying for the promotion play-offs with a late rally.

Spaniard Stefan Milojevic Bjekovic has headed for Greenock, while fellow defender Gregor Buchanan has been snapped up by the Pars, who have also cherry picked striker Michael Moffat from Ayr United and midfielder Andy Stirling from Stranraer - two of League One's best performers last term - to supplement a young squad manager Jim Jefferies hopes will blossom further in the coming season.

Defender Callum Morris, who switched from Dunfermline to Dundee United, is the only player from last season's League One to have been talent-hunted by a Premiership club, which is perhaps indicative of the workmanlike quality of the players on show.

Airdrieonians will be a force if manager Gary Bollan's experienced replacements can help recreate the form that led to only one defeat in their last 16 games.

Stenhousemuir and Forfar Athletic have also been busy adding some experienced professionals to their ranks, while promoted Stirling Albion have been busier than League Two champions Peterhead so far.
