SPFL transfer window extended 24 hours as Celtic and Rangers get extra transfer time

·1-min read

The Scottish transfer window deadline has been pushed back 24 hours to September 1.

The SPFL have moved to extend the deadline due to the Premier Sports cup last 16 which takes place on August 31 as the games would have shortened the time available for clubs to make their final moves in the market.

The games include Hearts welcoming Kilmarnock at Tynecastle and Celtic heading to the Highlands to face Malky Mackay's Ross County.

Motherwell will square off with Inverness in a tasty-looking battle while Jack Ross' Dundee United are sure to be tested by perennial over-achievers Livingston.

The window will close at midnight, by which time clubs will no longer be able to secure transfers from other clubs. They will, however, still be able to register those without a club.
