Thanks for your company this evening. We had some late, late deals to keep us occupied right up to the deadline and about an hour after it!

We'll have further reaction to all the deals at our website on Thursday.


Bain 'buzzing' over move

Goalkeeper Scott Bain, who has signed on loan for Celtic until the summer, said: "I phoned my dad earlier today just to say that I was leaving Easter Road and on the road to Glasgow, and he was buzzing and delighted for me.

"I can’t believe I was on the bench for Hibs against Celtic last weekend and then, just a few days later, I’m signing for Celtic."

Hendry hails 'brilliant' move

Celtic signing Jack Hendry: "I’m absolutely delighted to have signed for Celtic," he told his club website.

"Joining the Scottish champions is a brilliant move for me. I know, from playing against Celtic this season, the quality of players that are at the club and I can’t wait to start training with my new team-mates.

“I also know that working with Brendan Rodgers and the rest of the coaching staff here will improve me as a player and I’m looking forward to working hard every day to repay the faith they’ve shown in signing me.

“I’ve already experienced playing at Celtic Park as an opposition player, but I can’t wait to run out wearing the Celtic jersey and play in front of the Celtic supporters.”

Aberdeen land goalkeeper Woodman

Aberdeen have signed Newcastle United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman on loan for the rest of the season.

England Under-21 international Woodman, 20, impressed during a similar spell at Kilmarnock last season.

The Dons secured the keeper after he was on the Newcastle bench for Wednesday's 1-1 draw at home to Burnley.

The signing of Woodman, who made his Magpies debut in their FA Cup win over Luton this month, follows Joe Lewis' knee injury picked up during Aberdeen's recent defeat by Rangers.

He will compete with Danny Rogers for the gloves at Pittodrie.

Morelos 'confused' by big money China offer

Rangers manager Graeme Murty wants "confused" striker Alfredo Morelos to stay and fulfil his potential at Ibrox following interest from China.

The 21-year-old Colombian is wanted by Beijing Renhe just six months after arriving in Glasgow from HJK Helsinki.

But Murty confirmed that he has no intention of losing his top scorer.

"He is confused at the minute because there are figures being bandied about which would turn anyone's head," said Murty.

"It's almost designed to confuse and unsettle."

Well must sell on own terms - Robinson

Robinson rues 'Well's wasted chances

FT: Hibernian 2-1 Motherwell

Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson can't quite believe his side are leaving Easter Road empty-handed.

"We'll play a lot worse than that and win football matches," he tells BBC Sportsound. "For large periods I thought we were in control of the game. We had chances and we didn't take them. Hibs have some real quality at the top end of the pitch and they punished us."

On the chances of adding to his squad tonight, Robinson is a bit gloomy.

"The longer it goes on, the less likely it looks," he says. "In an ideal world, if we got another striker in that would boost us."

On fending off interest from Celtic in goalkeeper Trevor Carson, he adds: "We set the parameters that people go with, not the players, not other clubs. We're a selling club, we make no bones about that but it has to be on our terms when we can replace people - not in the last five hours of the window."

Any late Deadline Day drama?

As the dust settles on tonight's Scottish Cup and Premiership action, could there be any late, late transfer drama involving Scottish clubs.

Remember, the deadline is midnight; while down south it is at 23:00.

Allan close to a Hibs return

FT: Hibernian 2-1 Motherwell

It looks like Scott Allan is going back to Easter Road before the midnight deadline in a deal that will see Simon Murray go the other way to Dundee.

Midfielder Allan, 26, has been on loan at Dens Park from Celtic, who signed him from Hibs in the summer of 2015 after the player had requested a transfer to join Rangers.

Hibs should also wrap up the signing of goalkeeper Cammy Bell, who was released by Kilmarnock earlier today, as recently arrived back-up keeper Scott Bain is on his way to Celtic.

"We're close," says Hibs boss Neil Lennon. "It's almost there. Simon is almost confirmed at Dundee and Scott is here. Sad news to lose Simon but very good news for us to bring a player of Scott Allan's quality in.

"I've been a big admirer of Cammy for some time. I know he's 78 now (he's 31 really) but he will do a good job for us if called upon."

Hibs reached an arrangement to release Anthony Stokes this week after one off-field indiscretion too many for Lennon.

"There's only so many times you can go to the well," said Lennon. "I have to do what I think is best for Hibs - for the supporters, for the board and, most importantly, for that group of players in there, who have done wonders for this club over the last couple of years. There is a line I won't tolerate and Anthony had plenty of chances not to cross it. I can't keep wrapping him on the knuckles and saying 'it's all right'."

'We knocked the stuffing out of Ross County'

FT: Ross County 2-4 Aberdeen

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes: "We were up against a team who, when they came out of the traps, are fighting for their lives and we couldn’t quite get up the pitch and didn’t get our passing going in the first 15 to 20 minutes.

"I thought our performance from the first goal onwards was outstanding and I was pleased with our movement.

"We were really bright and dominated the ball; we looked very assured with our defending. I think we knocked the stuffing out of Ross County to be honest."

Lennon savours 'massive' victory

FT: Hibernian 2-1 Motherwell

Hibs boss Neil Lennon is a happy man after sealing three welcome points.

"The injuries [to Darren McGregor and Brandon Barker] curtailed our progress and we've had a heavy schedule. You could see there was fatigue there. Were we hanging on? Maybe a little bit. I don't remember my goalkeeper making too many saves but you have to respect Motherwell, who are a very good side.

"Up until an hour, 70 minutes, we were very good. It's a massive win and it puts us comfortably into fourth place."

County had 'a mountain to climb' - Coyle

FT: Ross County 2-4 Aberdeen

Ross County boss Owen Coyle told BBC Scotland: "I think we started the game very well. And the keeper made a terrific save from Souttar and we looked very comfortable in the game.

"Second half, there was nothing in it and I don’t have to tell Scott Fox about the mistake he’s made - it was a horrible mistake.

"And you find yourself with a mountain to climb. To their credit, they stuck at it.

"We got a couple of goals back and gave them a little fright in the last 15 to 20 minutes. But you can’t only play for 15 to 20 minutes in a game. The only way you change that is to make sure you’re more resilient.

"We’ve got a number of players coming back in now, which is important. So, hopefully, we’ll get close to our best team on the field and that will give us an opportunity to go and win games."

The pitch was hard, but we won and nobody got injured - Murty

Fraserburgh 0-3 Rangers

Rangers manager Graeme Murty, speaking to Sky Sports: "The conditions played a part, but it was a clean sheet , a win, three goals and we’re pleased to be through.

"There was definitely an improvement in the 2nd half. I was a little bit frustrated [at half-time], we were opening spaces up then turning back. You can’t keep on doing that. We looked a threat, but played 70% of the game from 50 yards out. We didn’t penetrate.

"I have to be calm in how I look at it. The pitch was hard, the game won’t be like that in the Premier League. The most important thing was that we got through and nobody is injured.

"It was three good goals [from Windass] but I spent 20 minutes telling him to run forward, so that he engaged the back line. He’s good on one v ones and we wanted him to do that more often than drop deep. When he gets the ball, he can accelerate the game, so we want him to do that more. Three goals, he’s quite happy in the changing room.

Rangers celebrate

"It’s a big challenge for us as a club to make sure we have done right by [Morelos] and we have. We just need to make sure the player is clam and he knows we can get him to the next level. He’s our player and we can make sure he gets that big move, we can improve him. Agents and media don’t help, because he was a confused young man. He saw astronomical figures being thrown at him and sees a chance to take care of his family for a long time but I don’t know how much of that was there. We can get him to that next level with us.

"There is no-one who isn’t sellable, but we want to push on to the next level and not weaken our squad. I’m under no pressure to let him go. He’s a young man who sees pound signs floating in front his eyes and we need to make sure there is some realism. He understands our position.”

Fraserburgh effort 'incredible'

FT: Fraserburgh 0-3 Rangers

Fraserburgh manager Mark Cowie: The effort over the piece was incredible. I've played in that type of game where you're up against top, top opposition.We're playing one of the top sides in the country and it's going to be difficult. Okay, it was 3-0 but there weren’t too many clear-cut chances.

"The Fraserburgh fans are great and they turn out in their numbers to support us week in, week out.It's a day for them and a day for the players."
