McInnes targets further signings

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is hopeful of bringing in more players before the transfer window closes at the end of the month, but admits a deal to bring in Matty Kennedy - who signed a pre-contract agreement with the Dons - in January may not go through. “Obviously I would like [to have him here now] as there’s obviously an urgency for any manager to make the necessary changes," he said. “We’ve got one or two other things in the pipeline that we could maybe do. I am keen to make two or three changes."

Omeonga: I burned bridges to seal Hibs return

Hibernian midfielder Stephane Omeonga has insisted that incurring the wrath of indignant Italian side Cosenza and being subjected to online abuse was a small price to pay after securing a loan return to Easter Road. “When I told them that I had changed my mind and was going to Hibs, they were pretty angry," he said. "People were saying bad things about me on social media and stuff but that’s just football. The minute the chance to come back here was on the table it was impossible to turn down.”

Partick Thistle bring in Celtic defender

Lee O'Connor, the former Manchester United defender who moved to Celtic last summer, will spend the remainder of the season on loan at Firhill.

This is something I wanted to do and I'm excited to get going."
