Celtic are building a new pounds 6m stand. The East End stand will seat around 12,500, raising the capacity to more than 47,000. It is expected to be ready for the start of next season and Celtic are already planning to further develop the West side of their ground, eventually increasing capacity to around 60,000.

Raith Rovers will receive pounds 40,000 for left-back Jason Rowbotham, who moved under freedom-of-contract to Wycombe, an international tribunal meeting in Manchester decided yesterday.

Airdire have signed the goalkeeper Andy Rhodes from St Johnstone for pounds 50,000. He makes his debut tonight against Clydebank.
