Queen of the South

In: Andrew Stirling (Dumbarton), Callum Fordyce (Dunfermline Athletic), Alan Martin (Dumbarton), Shaun Rooney (York City), Chris Kane (St Johnstone, loan), Jason Kerr (St Johnstone, loan)

Out: Joe Thomson (Celtic, loan expired), Connor McManus (Celtic, loan expired), Dominic Thomas (Motherwell, loan expired), James Atkinson (Annan Athletic), Jamie Hamill (Stranraer), Chris Higgins (Ayr United), Andy Dowie (Dumbarton), Scott Hooper (Annan Athletic), Dale Hilson (St Mirren), Steven Rigg (released), Owen Moxon (Annan Athletic), Dean Brotherston (Sunshine George Cross), Aidan Smith (Annan Athletic)

This is accurate, though Joe Thomson has since gone back out on loan to Livingston and Connor McManus left Celtic on his return and has since signed for Morton. Dom Thomas moved to Kilmarnock following his return to Motherwell (and nobody, not even his parents, have ever called Jim Atkinson "James"!)

Steven Rigg remains clubless as he's not fit yet following cruciate surgery.

If you want to be pedantic and include others who had a squad number for us last season even though they didn't actually get on the pitch for the first team, other "Outs" were:
Cameron Copland (Penrith)
Richard Murray (Cumnock Juniors)
Ayrton Sonkur (Annan Athletic)

:lol: I like to be formal about these things

Cheers, I'll fire in the other lads just to make it totally complete!

Falkirk fairly cornering the market on centre halves.

Yes but the majority of them aren't very good and that's being kind.

After 25 days and a staggering 103* minutes game time, Joe Thomson has returned to Celtic as he wasn't going to get the game time he would have liked.

*Missed a game while checking, he actually played 193 minutes.

You've lost a good 'un there.

Excellent.

Was apparently expecting to start almost every game, but there are about 4 or 5 guys ahead of him. 

Guaranteed to come back to this division and score against us every game. b*****d.

He would be one of the best central midfielders in the league, so most definitely a poor decision on your management's part.

 

Presumably he won't be able to go out on loan again until January, I'm sure skyline drifter will confirm.

Source? I don't see it on your OS or Twitter.

Utter madness. Joe Thomson is easily one of the better midfielders at this level. I think he could play regularly in the Premier to be honest.

He could go back out on an Emergency Loan now but obviously for a maximum 93 days so wouldn't get all the way through to January. Two club rule is also relevant here. He's played for Livi so he can only go to one other club this season. If he goes on an Emergency Loan he's pretty much also needing to commit to that club for the rest of the season too as he'd only be able to play there or at Livi in the second half of the season.

He can't actually have gone back after 25 days either. Loans can't be cancelled until 28 days have passed so they'll need to wait until later in the week to cancel it. If he was on a Development or Standard Loan he can't go back out and he can't play for Celtic's first team either.

Depends what kind of loan he was on. If he was on an Emergency Loan then he could go out on another one. He can't actually have gone back after 25 days either. Loans can't be cancelled until 28 days have passed so they'll need to wait until later in the week to cancel it.

Two club rule is also relevant here. He's played for Livi so he can only go to one other club this season.

Maybe the 28 day rule you mention is why it hasn't been confirmed by our OS yet, not confirming it until it's official?

*Prays that Stevie Aitken still has enough in the budget to bring in JT on Emergency Loan*

I rephrased my first answer which wasn't well worded. He could go back out on Emergency Loan somewhere else (but wouldn't reach January unless it didn't happen until about the end of September) but that would exhaust his two clubs for the season. I don't see them putting him back out on an Emergency Loan unless it comes with an agreement he'll also be there for the second half of the season too.

We'll punt Hutton in January to make room for him, it's cool.

I wouldn't rely on some Gary Locke type mug bailing you out this season in the style of the Stevenson - Vaughan debacle :thumbsdown
