Hearts and Hibs’ Premiership rivals snubbed by ex-Newcastle captain as Celtic turn down late bid



The football scene in the Scottish Premiership is gearing up for an eventful week with key matches involving top teams in the capital.

Hearts, currently in third place with a perfect record in 2024, will face St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park, aiming to continue their impressive form. Meanwhile, Hibs, looking to bounce back from a recent defeat to St Mirren, will host league leaders Celtic in a crucial encounter at Easter Road.

In managerial news, Aberdeen has appointed Neil Warnock as their interim manager until the end of the season, replacing Barry Robson. Warnock, a veteran with extensive experience managing clubs like Sheffield United, QPR, Cardiff City, and Huddersfield Town, takes on his 20th managerial role and his first in Scottish football. Despite his arrival, Aberdeen is reportedly still in search of a long-term successor for the upcoming season.

The Daily Record had suggested that Scott Parker, a former Newcastle and Chelsea midfielder, was a strong contender for the role. However, the Daily Mail reports that Parker has declined the opportunity due to concerns about the frequent managerial changes at Aberdeen in recent years.

In transfer news, Celtic’s center back, Stephen Walsh, attracted late January interest from an unnamed German team. The club swiftly rejected a loan-with-option-to-buy bid for Walsh, who has seen limited playing time this season. Despite the lack of minutes, Celtic values Walsh and recently signed him to a new four-year deal. The rejection of the bid suggests that there could be increased interest in Walsh during the summer transfer window.
