Does the loss of Ryan Jack from Scotland’s Euros squad open the door for an untried midfielder to gatecrash the party?

Keith Jackson: Let’s be in no doubt, Jack’s loss is a major blow. But it does open up a space for David Turnbull who deserved to be in the reckoning in any case.

Craig Swan: It's a blow to lose Jack but the midfield is the strongest area of the squad, outside left back, and Steve Clarke should cope. Turnbull can’t be far off getting a call though.

Michael Gannon: Unlikely. there’s enough strength in the middle of the park already.

Gordon Parks: No. Jack hasn’t been a regular for his country and there’s already a stampede for the midfield positions. Clarke appears to have settled on his squad and, Ryan Gauld apart, there are no obvious players making late auditions.

Stephen Glass got off to a winning start but what will constitute success for the Aberdeen boss this season and next?

Keith Jackson: Win the Scottish Cup this season and secure a third-place finish in the top flight. A big ask perhaps but then Glass is filling big shoes. He has to prove he can pack a bigger punch than Derek Mcinnes managed over the years.

Craig Swan: Winning the Scottish Cup would be a great start. However, just making sure the Dons turn in some good performances to lay foundations is fair enough.

Michael Gannon: Same as it always is at Pittodrie, third spot and a bash at the cups. Silverware is success and an entertaining team is the promise Glass has to live up to.

Gordon Parks: Aberdeen were dismal for large parts of their win over Livingston and glass should know major changes are required. budget dictates everything in the Premiership. He needs to land a European place and take his side to a major domestic final. no pressure.

Hearts are home and hosed in the Championship but do any of the others chasing a play-off spot have a chance of beating the 11th-placed Premiership team to join them in the top flight?

Keith Jackson: Raith and Dundee will give anyone a game. there’s every chance one of them will be playing in the top flight next season.

Craig Swan: Raith have been superb this season but inverness are the ones to watch. they’ve already beaten Ross County in the cup and were unlucky against St Mirren the other night. no one will want to face them in a play-off showdown.

Michael Gannon : The schedules and odds are piled against them. But it is a strange season. Rule nothing out.

Gordon Parks: Dundee have a bit of quality and there isn’t a huge gulf between the top sides in the Championship and teams at the bottom of the Premiership. you wouldn’t bet your house on any of them beating Dundee or Dunfermline to stay up..

After Bob MacIntyre’s Masters heroics on his debut, what are the chances of him being fitted for a Green Jacket at some point in his career?

Keith Jackson: He's like the Lewis Capaldi of golf. You’re half expecting him to pull of bottle of Buckie out of his bag. But boy, is this lad a talent. Whether he’s a Masters winner or not remains to be seen but he’s certainly got the game to land a Major.

Craig Swan: Anything is possible after his sensational debut. Macintyre is going the right way to becoming an elite player but he needs to build up some tournament wins before he can be a Major contender.

Michael Gannon : Probably not. Some of the game’s greats have never won one. But he can win a Major and, if it’s Augusta, great

Gordon Parks: It was a terrific debut at Augusta and great to see a Scot show so much composure and class on the big stage. He has all the tools and his career could well hit the heights of landing a Major.
