The transfer window is closed for another six months – and both Celtic and Rangers will be happy with the business they have done.
But that doesn’t mean the squad hasn’t grown as much as the premiership team can.
At this time of year, it is customary for parties who still have two free spaces to fill their squads to start roaming for players who cannot find the club before the transfer window closes.
Take Swansea City, for example. Former Celtic midfielder Olivier Antchum’s mystery unraveled.
Or the heart for the matter, which we told you. He is pursuing former Rangers star Barry McKay.
And with Cowed’s budget impact across the UK, there are more big names than ever before this summer who haven’t nailed their landing spot well enough for this season.
Can any of them work in your club? Some have more realistic goals than others.
But there is still a sunscreen guide to the best free agents.

Last Club: Ross County
Now 33, the young French playmaker played a handful of games for the Highlanders last season. Can he still get a job?
Last Club: Tottenham Hotspur.
Both are well stocked on the old firm’s side-back – but weren’t they, Ivory Coast’s captain – whose money-spinning contract was recently canceled – worth watching if the deal hadn’t been richer? Would have

Celtic have caught one-time Basic Everton team-mate James McCarthy patrolling their midfield, but Bosnia’s international Basic is a few years younger and still on the market.
Last Club: Burnley
When it came to Eddie Howe as manager, he had a lot to do with Celtic. Able to work on the left back, a position where the Hopes can still consider strongly, even though it will block the way for Liam Scales’ first team.
Last club: Sheffield United.
The England Youth Cape and the 24-year-old central defender saw some time playing with the Blades in the Premier League. Started from Manchester City.
Last Club: Newcastle United.
It is a little known fact that Scotland actually tried to play a 6 foot 4 inch target man for them before England’s first cap. He returned to the market after his release from his hometown of Newcastle and certainly an aerial presence.
Last Club: Rangers
Advanced Probability, which is still only 19, was photographed with the Celtic strip after a sudden departure from Abrox this week. Both Russia County and Burnley have expressed interest, but their next move has not been confirmed.

Another man previously linked to Hopes was involved in IB’s off-field issues, including driving after his supercar collided with a London cafe. He did not stay long in Derby County after leaving Bournemouth.

Last Club: Trabzonspor.
Posting photos on the occasion of his 32nd birthday this week, he said he felt “more excited than ever”, but there has been no one to take the stage since the abrupt end of his short stint in Turkish football. Liverpool’s link with Gerard sees him linked to the Rangers from time to time.
Last Club: Austin Villa.
