The window 'slams' shut 2

The January transfer window tends to be an anti-climax with more sound and fury than actual transfer activity. But not this year for my club - Hibs - who no doubt due to their perillous position have signed almost and entire new team of eight players.

The most interesting aspect is the signing of Honduran international midfielder Jorge Claros. Claros had a trial with Rangers, impressed their manager and all that was left was the dotting of the 'Is' and crossing of the 'ts' - except it didn't happen as Rangers couldn't find the finances to pay for it.

Rangers are facing multi-million pound tax litigation with the revenue and could face administration as a result.

So in stepped lowly Hibs and snatched him from Rangers grasp.

When was the last time the old firm were outbid by another Scottish club for a player?
