It’s just after midday and we have our first bit of activity coming from Celtic.
St Johnstone have confirmed the signing of Celtic defender Anthony Ralston on a season long loan.
The Club is delighted to announce the signing of 20-year-old right-back Anthony Ralston on a season-long-loan from @CelticFC.
The Scotland U21 international joined his new teammates for training this morning.
More to follow.

The defender has found game time hard to come by, even when Celtic have been struggling in the right-back position. Hatem Elhamed has come into the club and looks the part in that position. Ralston has fallen further down the pecking order with Mortiz Bauer coming in on-loan from Stoke.
The lad will now have the chance to go out and get some first team football under his belt.
Ralston did play in Celtic’s 4-1 win over AIK last week when Kristoffer Ajer pulled up with a groin strain in Sweden. That looks to be his last action of the season in a Celtic shirt.
With any loan deal Celtic make domestically, you’d imagine Anthony will be prohibited from facing his parent team.
