Ross County may be without a manager but that appears to be doing little to deter the Dingwall club from attempting to bolster their squad on the final day of the transfer window.
Caretaker manager Steven Ferguson has been given permission by chairman Roy MacGregor to press ahead with deals that could help the club move away from the foot of the Scottish Premiership.
The Staggies have been linked with a move for former Hearts, Falkirk and Kilmarnock defender Darren Barr, while Dundee United’s Michael Gardyne could join on loan.
Gardyne spent four years at County before joining the Tannadice side in 2012 but spent last season on loan at Kilmarnock.
County have also been linked with Aberdeen defender Clark Robertson but it is unlikely the Pittodrie side would allow the Scotland under-21 international to leave on loan unless they manage to sign another left back today.
Ross County are bottom of the Scottish Premiership with no points from five matches and were thumped 4-0 by Hamilton Accies on Saturday.
