Report: Hearts and Hibs rivals’ manager to hold ‘crunch talks’ with club bosses as Celtic learn price tag for striker



It seems both Hearts and Hibs are gearing up for crucial fixtures in the Scottish Premiership. Hearts will aim to continue their impressive form against St Johnstone, while Hibs will seek to bounce back from recent setbacks against league leaders Celtic.

For Hibs manager Nick Montgomery, securing a league win has become a pressing issue, with the team facing a winless streak since December 9th and coming off a disappointing 3-0 defeat to St Mirren. The upcoming match against Celtic presents an opportunity for redemption and a chance to turn their season around.

Meanwhile, the Edinburgh Evening News has provided comprehensive coverage of the Scottish Premiership, highlighting key developments such as crunch talks for managers under pressure and significant developments in Celtic’s pursuit of a striker in the upcoming summer transfer window. These headlines reflect the ongoing drama and intrigue within Scottish football, adding to the anticipation surrounding tonight’s matches.

Struggling Premiership manager holds key talks over future

It seems that Ross County boss Derek Adams is facing a challenging situation following his team’s demoralizing 5-0 defeat to Motherwell. Adams, who took over from Malkay Mackay in November, has struggled to turn around the team’s fortunes, winning only two of his first 12 games in all competitions.

Adams previously made headlines in December when he criticized the standard of Scottish football after a loss to Dundee, as well as comparing his former club Morecambe favorably to his current team. With results deteriorating since then, Adams acknowledges that his future at the club is uncertain.

In an interview with BBC Sport, Adams expressed his need to consider his position and discuss his future with the club’s hierarchy. He emphasized the challenging circumstances he inherited upon joining the club and the ongoing difficulties faced by Ross County.

Adams’ intention to hold discussions with the chairman and CEO suggests that he is evaluating his options and considering the best course of action for both himself and the club. Despite the challenges, he maintains his belief in the potential of Ross County as a football club but acknowledges the current difficult circumstances they face.

Celtic learn price tag for deadline day loan signing

Celtic secured their second signing of the winter transfer window with the addition of Adam Idah from Norwich City on loan. The Republic of Ireland international, who revealed his childhood support for Celtic, expressed his eagerness to contribute to the team’s quest for success in both the league and Scottish Cup.

While Idah’s loan move bolsters Celtic’s attacking options, it’s worth noting that there is no option included in the deal for the club to purchase the player outright. This means that Celtic won’t have priority should they decide to pursue a permanent transfer for Idah in the future.

Currently, Celtic are evaluating Idah’s abilities, with reports suggesting that Norwich City values the striker at approximately £3 million. Should Celtic opt to pursue a permanent deal for the 22-year-old in the summer, they would need to negotiate with Norwich City to secure his services beyond the loan period.
