Manchester United entered Selhurst Park with two goals in mind.
Win to secure all three points and move within six points of leaders Arsenal was the top prize for Erik ten Hag, of course, but the Red Devils had one eye on Casemiro who was sitting on a four yellow cards with a game against the Gunners looming on Sunday.
United whiffed on both achievements. With the Red Devils leading down the stretch thanks to Bruno Fernandes's opener before the break, Michael Olise deposited an 89th minute free-kick into the back of the net to level the score and share the points on a 1-1 draw, minutes after Casemiro had clumsily picked up his dreaded booking to see him trigger a suspension for the weekend's huge game.
The draw sees United leap Newcastle United into third in the Premier League table, but surely this result will feel like two points lost for ten Hag's squad, who were exceptional in the first half but dipped significantly after the break, with a 1-1 scoreline ultimately a fair result.
So nearly 10 wins in a row for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson, that is a gut-wrenching finish for Manchester United.
The Sporting News was following the match live and provided score updates, commentary and highlights as they happened.
Crystal Palace (4-2-3-1, right to left): 13. Vincent Guaita (GK) — 17. Nathaniel Clyne, 26. Chris Richards, 6. Marc Guehi, 3. Tyrick Mitchell — 19. Will Hughes (Milivojevic, 84'), 28. Cheick Doucoure (Schlupp, 71') — 7. Michael Olise, 14. Jean-Philippe Mateta (Eze, 55'), 11. Wilfried Zaha — 22. Odsonne Edouard (Ayew, 71').
Man United (4-2-3-1, right to left): 1. David de Gea (GK) — 29. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, 19. Raphael Varane, 6. Lisandro Martinez, 23. Luke Shaw, — 14. Christian Eriksen (Fred, 83'), 18. Casemiro — 10. Marcus Rashford, 8. Bruno Fernandes, 21. Antony (Garnacho, 69') — 27. Wout Weghorst (McTominay, 69').
The Red Devils see their winning streak halted at nine matches across all competitions, and it couldn't have come at a worse moment. In addition, Casemiro is suspended for the Arsenal match to compound their heartbreak.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, earn a huge point to end a poor run of form, and for now staving off a tumble into the relegation battle.
89th min: GOAL! CRYSTAL PALACE! Just as four minutes of added time are shown, Crystal Palace find their equaliser on a free-kick! The best set-piece team in the league produce another as Michael Olise's free-kick stunner crushes Manchester United hearts. The Red Devil coaching staff is a lonely bunch on the touchline and Selhurst Park is alight.
83rd min: Fred comes on, and while he could have replaced Casemiro had he not been booked, instead it's Christian Eriksen that comes off after the Brazilian's already picked up his suspension. Manchester United hanging on by a thread.
80th min: Oh no! Casemiro is booked for a very, very clumsy challenge that was a blatant yellow card. He's out of the Arsenal match on Sunday! That was a truly moronic tackle, there was no need for it, leaving his feet to fly in with both boots.
79th min: Casemiro comes to the rescue again with United defenders pushed high up the field. It's all a bit worrying for the visitors at Selhurst Park at the moment, clinging to this slim 1-0 lead.
75th min: Chance, Crystal Palace! Another huge moment for David de Gea! A corner delivery gets over the head of Raphael Varane, and Marc Guehi is there to meet it with his head, but de Gea dives to his left and palms it away! It's his second huge save of the evening! Palace are drawing closer...
72nd min: Big penalty shout for Manchester United! Chris Richards steps in strongly on Scott McTominay and it's unclear whether he gets a touch on the ball. The official waves away the shouts, and while on replay it looks worrying for the American defender, the decision survives a VAR review and play continues.
Crystal Palace have made a change, with Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlupp on for Cheick Doucoure and Odsonne Edouard. Attacking changes for the trailing side.
68th min: United are slowing things down and taking the air out of the ball. They're happy to knock the ball around and ask Palace to win the ball back. Scott McTominay and Alejandro Garnacho are brought into the fray, with Antony and Wout Weghorst brought off. It's a change in formation, with Marcus Rashford likely to take up the central striker role. A bit surprising Casemiro was not withdrawn given his disciplinary situation.
62nd min: Casemiro makes yet another interception, and the plaudits for his performance start to roll in. His passing has been high-risk, just 36/56 so far, but he's made three successful tackles tonight on six attempts, and is 6/7 on ground duels, which is outstanding. Most importantly, he hasn't picked up a yellow card yet, which would potentially see him suspended for the Arsenal game on Sunday.
60th min: A decent chance for Crystal Palace but the substitute Eberechi Eze fires wide left. It was started by Wilfried Zaha who sent in a second-chance cross after his initial ball was blocked well by Luke Shaw. Crystal Palace are starting to gain a foothold on the match.
55th min: Crystal Palace have something to think about as Michael Olise may be in some trouble here after a knee injury, but he'll stay on. Instead, it's Jean-Philippe Mateta who comes off as Patrick Viera turns to Ebrechi Eze off the bench.
There's an idiot on the field who approaches Casemiro and is finally escorted off after quite a worrying delay.
47th min: Lisandro Martinez is the first of the game into the referee's book, dragging back Wilfried Zaha and giving Crystal Palace a set-piece opportunity, where they excel. It's wasted and cleared this time, however.
Kickoff: The second half is under way. No changes for either side, as expected. Both managers will be largely content with most of the first 45 minutes, as United lead but Palace made things difficult for large stretches. The hosts will need to keep an eye on their attacking contributions so far, however, and could use with some inspired substitutions if the deficit remains.
10 mins to 2H kick: For U.S. fans wanting to keep an eye on Chris Richards, he's had quite a good match against United overall. He wasn't explicitly at fault for the United goal, although both he and Marc Guehi got sucked in towards goal by Wout Weghorst, leaving Bruno Fernandes all alone at the penalty spot. That's shared responsibility within the Palace squad, when either one of the centre-backs or a midfielder could have covered that area.
For the opening 45 minutes, he's 13/15 passing, including 3/5 on long balls, and is 1/1 tackling with four clearances, 2/2 on ground duels, and 0/1 aerially. His highlight was racing back to beat Antony to a vertical ball down the right.
Halftime: Manchester United took nearly the entire half to work a goal, but they go into the halftime break with their noses in front thanks to one sensational save by David de Gea and one smart finish from Bruno Fernandes.
United are leaning on role players outside of just their goalscorers, which is the mark of a good team. Luke Shaw, Christian Eriksen, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Casemiro all had a solid role to play in that first half. Palace, meanwhile, have looked mostly strong off the ball, but haven't been able to work much going forward.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is quite clearly the sharpest player on the pitch so far. The improvement over the past few weeks is so striking, it’s hard not to be impressed.
WHAT a player Luke Shaw has blossomed into. It seemed everyone knew he had it in him, but it took time for it to really come out on a consistent basis. Defensively and offensively, he's in sensational form. Great crosses, and just raced back to beat Wilfried Zaha on the counter.
43rd min: GOAL! MAN UNITED! Bruno Fernandes puts the Red Devils in front! Moments after De Gea's incredible save, United take full advantage. It all starts with Christian Eriksen down the left, charging down the flank from midfield. He cuts the ball back for Fernandes who is completely unmarked right on the penalty spot. The finish is an easy one, all alone after Wout Weghorst dragged both centre-backs to the mouth of goal.
Big goal and big celebration for Manchester United!
38th min: Manchester United have a great set-piece chance as Luke Shaw is felled by Cheick Doucoure. It's from a central location about 28 yards out, and Marcus Rashford takes, whipping it over the wall but well wide left. A relatively poor effort.
WHAT a player Luke Shaw has blossomed into. It seemed everyone knew he had it in him, but it took time for it to really come out on a consistent basis. Defensively and offensively, he's in sensational form. Great crosses, and just raced back to beat Wilfried Zaha on the counter.
33rd min: Luke Shaw hacks down Wilfried Zaha on the counter-attack, and he's lucky not to obtain a yellow card for the tactical foul. He'll take that, after United had finally coughed up possession and Palace looked to break.
Palace waste the set-piece chance, and then Bruno Fernandes wastes an effort from distance as he curls a shot well wide of the far post.
31st min: Chance, Man United! Luke Shaw nearly tees up Wout Weghorst from the left flank, but the Dutchman heads it over! Weghorst had found space between the two Palace centre-backs Chris Richards and Marc Guehi to meet the ball aerially.
26th min: The game is beginning to slow a bit now. Chris Richards makes a needed intervention on a through-ball meant for Wout Weghorst. Antony gets in a scuffle on the touchline with Palace full-back Tyrick Mitchell, which the referee sorts out.
Moments later Antony gets into it with his teammate Bruno Fernandes after a ball goes out of play. The two are quite unhappy with each other, shouting at each other from across the pitch, showing quite a bit of frustration. Selhurst Park loves it.
Antony and Bruno Fernandes rowing over a misplaced pass. Loudest Selhurst Park has been so far tonight.
Bit of verbals between Antony and Fernandes when they get their wires crossed on an attacking opportunity.
20th min: Play continues now with Martinez off the field, he looks to be ok but will need a new shirt to account for all the blood. May need some patching up too.
Things have gotten a bit chaotic, as Man United nearly put themselves in danger with a poor back-pass, and then immediately go Route One down the other end and come close to springing Antony on the run.
17th min: Play is stopped as birthday boy Lisandro Martinez receives medical treatment for a head injury. There's some blood so this may be a bit. He took a thump on an aerial duel with Jean-Philippe Mateta, maybe a bit of an elbow. Certainly not enough for disciplinary action.
16th min: Chance, Man United! A long spell of attacking possession ends in a Luke Shaw volleyed effort that doesn't miss by much! It beats the goalkeeper but also beats the post, fired just wide right across the face of goal. Great whipped effort that had good pace.
11th min: Chance, Man United! Marcus Rashford is clean through, but he flubs the chance and clips it right to Vincent Guaita! The flag went up anyways, saving Rashford further embarrassment, but it's still not a whiff you'd expect from a player in his kind of form.
9th min: The most dangerous Man United moment so far came from a great one-two move between Luke Shaw and Wout Weghorst to spring Bruno Fernandes down the left. The Portuguese international delivered a delicious outside-of-the-boot curler to Antony in front of goal, but it's just too close to the goalkeeper Vincent Guaita who collects, awkwardly but effectively.
7th min: Palace with another dangerous moment, building forward through the middle and then filtering out wide left to Wilfried Zaha, whose vicious volleyed cross fizzles across the penalty area untouched.
Formations are so often difficult to truly parse out, but Marcus Rashford does seem to be playing as a strike partner for Wout Weghorst. It's fluid, but Rashford seems to have lots of freedom, while Bruno Fernandes is playing off him either out wide or tucked in behind.
United in more of a 4-4-2 tonight, with Rashford next to Weghorst up top.
4th min: A warning sign for Man United as Crystal Palace get some space in the attack. Odsonne Edouard has a moment to shoot at the top of the penalty area, but the ball gets stuck at his feet. Something United will want to keep in mind, as there was an opening for a moment of danger had Palace capitalised.
2nd min: Manchester United straight into the attack, and Chris Richards is immediately involved with a headed clearance. Will Hughes makes a couple of good early interventions. There are a couple of Palace players who could springboard forward with an impressive performance today.
A win for Manchester United today would see them draw within six points of Arsenal ahead of their meeting over the weekend. That would place them firmly in the title race.
18 mins to kick: Wout Weghorst has plenty of doubters in the Premier League after his move to Manchester United. His time at Burnley was ugly, scoring just two goals on 5.2 xG. He has a chance to silence that noise quickly here against Crystal Palace and make a case for his inclusion against Arsenal in a few days.
25 mins to kick: Erik ten Hag was also asked about deploying Casemiro in this match, knowing that if he's booked it would trigger a yellow card suspension for the huge game against Arsenal over the weekend. The Manchester United boss seems to be operating under the strategy that three points now is better than a possible three points then, which is a fair approach.
Ten Hag did see Fred, who is also on a yellow card, to the bench for this one, so he's not risked both at once.
40 mins to kick: Wout Weghorst's first Man United start is the talking point ahead of this match, and the Red Devils media have asked Erik ten Hag how he plans to utilise his new frontman in this game. He's not having it.
60 mins to kick: It's a debut on both sides, as we've been discussion, as lineups are confirmed. Wout Weghorst makes his first Manchester United start up front for the Red Devils, while Chris Richards earns his first Premier League start for the club he joined this past summer.
67 mins to kick: No official lineup news out yet, but reports filtering in from Manchester United journalists seem to suggest that Anthony Martial will not take part and Wout Weghorst will indeed get his first start for the club.
80 mins to kick: New Manchester United striker Wout Weghorst could potentially make his debut for the Red Devils today, but it does seem like it might be a bit early for that. Head coach Erik ten Hag was coy on that possibility in his pre-match press conference, simply saying he wanted to "prepare the team in the right way" for the match. The other options are continuing to deploy an out of form Anthony Martial up front, or moving Marcus Rashford to central striker.
🗣 "We can prepare the team in the right way."
105 mins to kick: U.S. fans will be watching intently as lineups are announced. Crystal Palace is preparing for three weeks without centre-back Joachim Andersen, and Chris Richards could be in contention to replace him at the back. James Tomkins could also be deployed in that spot.
120 mins to kick: Ahead of the Premier League clash, Erik ten Hag was asked if he could manage any player either past or present, and he selected his countrymate Johan Cruyff. Aside from Pele, the Dutch legend may have been the single most influential player on the modern game, both as a player and a manager. How many individuals throughout history can say they both have a skill named after them and invented an entirely new tactical concept? Cruyff was an all-time great.
Imagine this Manchester United side with Cruyff as field general! An excellent choice Erik.
You asked Erik if he could manage one player in football, past or present, who would it be...
Defender Joachim Andersen had to be replaced for Palace against Chelsea and is a doubt with a calf problem, possibly out as long as three weeks. His replacement is Chris Richards, who makes his first Premier League start, beating out James Tomkins for the spot start.
Starting in midfield is Will Hughes, who hasn't played a full 90 minutes since early November. He replaces Eberechi Eze, while Odsonne Edouard earns a rare start in place of regular striker Jordan Ayew.
Midfielder James McArthur remains out with a groin issue and defender Nathan Ferguson has been training individually as he returns to full fitness.
Crystal Palace confirmed starting lineup (4-3-3): Guaita (GK) — Clyne, Richards, Guehi, Mitchell — Hughes, Doucoure — Olise, Mateta, Zaha — Edouard.
Crystal Palace subs (9): Johnstone (GK), Ward, Tomkins, Milivojevic, Schlupp, Riedewald, Eze, Ozoh, Ayew.
Our starting XI for tonight 👊
Full-back Diogo Dalot (thigh) was forced off during United's 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Charlton Athletic on December 10 and missed the 2-1 comeback victory over Manchester City in the Premier League last Saturday. He sits again here in favor of the healthy Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Donny van de Beek could sit out the rest of the season with a serious knee injury, while long-term absentees Axel Tuanzebe and Jadon Sancho are also out again. Wout Weghorst gets his first start up front for the club, in place of the absent Anthony Martial, but fellow loanee Jack Butland can't play against his parent club.
Marcus Rashford also a knock in the Manchester derby, but passes a fitness test to start opposite Antony on the wing, with young Alejandro Garnacho benched despite rumors of a long-term deal agreed. Ten Hag has opted against resting Casemiro, who would be banned for the game at Arsenal if they were booked against Palace, as would his fellow midfielder Fred who does not make the Starting XI.
Man United confirmed starting lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Varane, L. Martinez, Shaw — Eriksen, Fred — Garnacho, Fernandes, Antony — Rashford.
Man United subs (9): Heaton (GK), Lindelof, Maguire, Malacia, McTominay, Fred, Pellistri, Elanga, Garnacho.

United are odds-on favourites to win three consecutive away league games for the first time in more than two years, with Palace long odds to end their three-match losing home run in all competitions by winning at Selhurst Park for the first time since October 29.
Palace beat United 1-0 at home last season as part of a sequence of three wins in the past six editions of this game in the Premier League, while Wilfried Zaha can become the former United player with the outright most goals against them if he scores in this fixture for a fourth time for the hosts.
Marcus Rashford is also seeking to become the first United player to find the net in eight consecutive appearances since Ruud van Nistelrooy in May 2003.

Spirits are high at Old Trafford after Manchester United beat fierce rivals Manchester City in the last game week. Erik ten Hag has rejuvenated the Red Devils despite their torrid start to the season and the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo. Crystal Palace on the other hand find themselves in a rut currently and will be looking to bounce back.
Manchester United are on a five-game winning streak which has seen them come two points off Manchester City in 2nd place. Marcus Rashford has been in world-class form ever since the World Cup and has scored in all of their league games since the restart. However, it's the entire squad who seem to have new life breathed into them with the Red Devils playing fast-fluid football which was hardly seen in previous campaigns.
Crystal Palace on the other hand are going through a tough period after a promising start to the campaign. They have lost four of their last five games, with their only win coming against relegation contenders Bournemouth. Patrick Viera will be banking on his team's recent form against Manchester United (three wins and a draw in the last six meetings) to get a result against them and get their season back on track.
Manchester United will next take on Arsenal at the Emirates on 22nd January in a crucial game which could have huge bearings on the title race. They will then travel to Nottingham Forest in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final on 25th January, before facing Reading in the FA Cup 4th round at home on 29th January.
The Hoops are back in Premiership action tonight when the Buddies come to Parkhead.
Champions Celtic cruised to yet another emphatic win as they outclassed St Mirren en route to a 4-0 win.
Ange Postecoglou's side weathered an early St Mirren push but the class was on show from the side in green and white. Liel Abada was on hand to slot home after Trevor Carson denied debutant Yuki Kobayashi and Carl Starfelt.
Then it was the Kyogo show with his first a clever lob over the keeper and his second a stunning breakaway on the counter as Jota teed him up and VAR verified the goal's veracity after a check. Celtic kept on it and David Turnbull made it 4-0 with a pearler from long range.
The champions remain red hot and another goal glut only reinforces the fact they boast a 10-point Premiership lead over Rangers when you take in the goal difference.
It's now Scottish Cup duty for Celtic as Championship surprise package Morton head to Glasgow on Saturday. No Giorgos Giakoumakis but still the goals flowed for Postecoglou's men.
Alistair Johnston was pleased and Ange Postecoglou has backed any fringe men to star against Morton at the weekend.
Celtic were too much for St Mirren to handle.
Here's how Ben Banks viewed the clash on a chilly night.
The champions make it look easy as Kyogo is at the double and Liel Abada and David Turnbull get it on the act.
Celtic are brilliant at paying possum. Invite the opposition on before launching a counter attack.
This time Johnston leads the attack.
Stunning save from Hart as the Cypriot gets acrobatic as he swivels with a stunning shot.
But the former England keeper was well up to it.
It was the a pop from distance and Carson had no hope as he scrambled across his box.
Celtic underline their dominance.
Haksabanovic and Maeda aren't short in movement but Celtic are keeping the ball and St Mirren appear keen to avoid any late drama.
No one wonder his Parkhead public adore him.
Now Jota and Kyogo exit with Maeda and Haksabanovic are on.
Loads of movement as St Mirren retreat into a low block.
Jota with a stunning pass to release Kyogo who sets up Forrest who thought he netted.
Great play from Celtic again to rip St Mirren to shreds.
The Aaaron Mooy song rings loud from the Green Brigade.
And it looks like some familiar faces with Forrest, Mooy and Turnbull primed to enter.
Hart was rising but it was the bar which denied the Scotland cap.
Starfelt, who has been commanding tonight, was caught under the ball.
It's Ayunga, Baccus and Dunne off with Grieve, Kiltie and Taylor on.
Now the playmaker is hanging around the edge of the box and he swivels and shoots but his rasping striker is just over the bar.
The champions are making it look easy.
But, perhaps, the key point here is there knack for self motivation.
It would be easy playing below their level, at times, but this has been a performance packed with quality and underlined in hard work.
And Jota's magic assist tipped it off.
The Celtic duo in full flow.
But that might be onside.
Magic football from the midfield pair and Hatate slips in the box as he appeared primed to pull the trigger.
Jota's ball was just behind the striker but another sign Celtic are seeking more goals.
It's the time of year when a team sheet can turn into a game of Cluedo, with fans left guessing about the fates of certain players. The absence of Giorgos Giakoumakis from the listing will have left a chunk of Hoops fans thinking the big Greek was at the Glasgow Airport departure lounge. It turned out it was the treatment table instead – at least for now.
Cameron Carter-Vickers is in there alongside him after picking up a knock but that allowed Kobayashi to take his bow at Parkhead. There are easier introductions than a run out against Curtis Main mind you. The Saints striker is usually a bull in search of a china shop and he left a few cracks on the Hearts backline last Friday, when the Jambos sneaked a win with a little help from a brutally harsh VAR non penalty call.
And sure enough, the frontman was in the thick of it early on when he nicked in to stick the ball in the back of the net with the Hoops back four snoozing when Alex Gogic won the ball in the air. The flag went up and VAR rubber stamped the call but it was an early warning from a side that can cause any rival grief. Boss Steven Robinson lost Mark O’Hara but it was a major boost having Dunne out of the bad books and in the side.
The centre back and his defensive chums would have a busy night. Celtic had the game faces on against a team who is about as close to a bogey side the champions get these days. St Mirren are still the only domestic side to earn a win bonus against Postecoglou’s men, when they did a number on them back in September. A few Hoops hearts fluttered when Main nicked in behind – but Celts were ahead just two minutes later after a minor siege on the Saints goal. Trevor Carson brilliantly kept out the initial volley from Matt O’Reilly’s corner, Kobayashi thumped the post with the rebound and then Abada superbly smashed in the third bite.
A goal down inside 15 minutes is the nightmare scenario for teams coming to Parkhead, yet Saints came straight back at Celtic as Joe Hart had to divert a long ranger from Jonah Ayunga. The Buddies frontman was gifted the ball again soon after by Starfelt – and the centre back needed Kobayashi to bail him out with a block.
The traffic was mainly in the other direction though. Jota was jinking, Abada driving and O’Rielly passing and probing. Saints were heroically keeping the hosts at bay but the inevitable second arrived in some style after 36 minutes. It was classic Kyogo, playing right on the shoulder and ready to pounce when Hatate clipped the ball beyond the backline, allowing the Japanese ace to deliciously scoop over Carson. The VAR crew made sure and the frontman was nearly In again at the back post moments later only to hit the side netting.
Lovely Adaba drag back and first time cross finds Kyogo and Celtic almost work a shot through O'Riley.
Celtic are closing the space at a fair old clip and it's forcing the Buddies into indvidiual errors.
And his players are certainly starting the second half with some extra oomph.
He's back up now and the game resumes.
St Mirren have it all to do.
The big stopper dropped a clanger with one pass, however, he has been very good duelling with Ayunga.
The big striker isn't getting as much joy as he did in Paisley back in September.
St Mirren started fast but they have had no answer for razor sharp Celtic who lead 2-0 thanks to goals from Liel Abada and Kyogo.
Curtis Main had the ball in the net but it was ruled out for offside.
A stunning finish from Scottish football's top marksmen.
The goals have been there but this might be the striker's best all round game in some time.
If he's not leaving the St Mirren backline sweating he's finding pockets of space and is quick in mind and body with a host of flicks and through balls.

Todd Cantwell is considering an offer from Rangers, after new Norwich manager David Wagner granted the midfielder permission to seek a new club.
Cantwell, 24, is out of contract at Carrow Road in the summer and has attracted interest from a number of Championship clubs.
However, Rangers have been leading the chase for his signature in this window, and Sky Sports News has been told the decision is now in the hands of the player, who is considering whether he wants a move to the Scottish Premiership.
Sky Sports News revealed last week Cantwell, who has four England under-21 caps, had held positive talks with Rangers and was favouring a move to Ibrox ahead of the other options presented to him.
We also reported last week that an unnamed Championship club had made a bid for the player, but that offer was rejected by Norwich.
It is understood Rangers boss Michael Beale is weighing up several options as he bids to add to his squad.
"Obviously I've got more insight to it than everybody else and I realise that the fans are really wanting new players in. We're certainly working on bringing in the right ones and, as soon as we get some news, we'll certainly send it outwards," Beale told Sky Sports News.
Swansea forward Morgan Whittaker remains of interest to Rangers, despite having a bid for the 22-year-old rejected last week.
Whittaker has not appeared for Swansea since being recalled from his loan at Plymouth earlier this month, where he scored nine goals and provided seven assists.
Swansea City head coach Russell Martin, who played for Rangers in 2018, said: "We have rejected an offer from them, that's it.
"We will just have to wait and see. It's not my remit - I don't value the players, I don't negotiate with the other clubs.
Who will be on the move this winter? The January transfer window closes at midnight in Scotland on Tuesday January 31, 2023.

Club players in Cork will no longer be able to call on CCTV footage from Páirc Uí Chaoimh when contesting a red card they received at the venue as the decision has been taken to point cameras away from the field of play.
The Irish Examiner knows of at least one high-profile Cork player who used CCTV footage from Páirc Uí Chaoimh to successfully challenge a red card they had received while on club duty in recent years.
CCTV footage from Páirc Uí Chaoimh was provided by Cork GAA in advance of two separate disciplinary hearings last year, but that practice has now been discontinued.
Cork GAA CEO Kevin O’Donovan explained that cameras at Páirc Uí Chaoimh will no longer be pointed in the direction of the field and therefore unable to support a player requesting a hearing.
O’Donovan’s personal view is that the use of CCTV footage in disciplinary cases is not "appropriate".
“The cameras at Pairc Uí Chaoimh are being pointed in a direction now for their purpose, which is security, safety of patrons, and so on,” said O’Donovan.
“They were never put in there for hearings. They are not of a quality that would benefit hearings, in my opinion, but those cameras, in any case, will no longer be pointing in the right direction to support a hearing.
Although CCTV footage is now off the table for players red-carded at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, the other more common means by which to obtain match footage remain.
“Clubs have permission to video games, there is streaming of games, and there are other avenues for tapes. CCTV footage, whether it is appropriate or not, and I believe it isn't, although I would feel duty bound that if we had video footage that we would give it to a player, but from this point forward we simply won't have that footage.
“There were two incidents in the last 12 months that clubs might say, [there] was a previous case and it was provided, but that's because it was available. In future, it simply won't be available for us to give because it won't be pointing in that direction. Elsewhere, O’Donovan confirmed there will be no rowing back on the county's cashless ticketing policy ahead of the 2023 club season.
“We will continue to engage with patrons who are disenfranchised by the e-ticketing. We will continue to improve the e-ticketing.
“The dream is, ultimately, that the technology will be better in future years and that we will be able to tap again at our games down the road, but we need the cost of the credit card machines to come down to make that viable.
“We do have tapping at Páirc Uí Chaoimh. But we don't plan to row back on cashless ticketing.

Voice of Nigeria - | The authentic choice
The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced plans to establish the Rural Access Marketing Project (RAAMP) in 36 states across the country, in a move aimed at boosting agricultural marketing and increasing income for farmers.
According to the National Project Coordinator of RAAMP, Mr Aminu Mohammed, during the agency’s annual retreat and training of staff in Calabar noted that, RAAMP was poised at making a remarkable impact across the country, hence the need to extend the project to all states.
He expressed delight over the increase in the number of participating states to 20, noting that the successes recorded from the project’s commencement in 2008 in Cross River and Kaduna paved the way for its growth.
He urged participating states to be more involved in putting the project into action, noting that this would help them get more money to improve their rural roads.
“Some of the state project coordinators are doing very well, all hands must be on deck to achieve the goals of the project because there will be more funding if we are able to do the job well.
“We are looking at making the project multi-phased and also introducing technology in its implementation because we believe that we will achieve more using technology,” he said.
The Governor of Cross River state, Ben Ayade, called on the staff of the project to put national interest above their ethnic, religious and political inclinations in the discharge of their assignment.
Represented by the State Commissioner for International Donor Cooperation, Dr. Inyang Asibong, he described RAAMP as a multi-dimensional project capable of positively changing lives, especially those of rural dwellers.
He therefore pledged to keep supporting the vision of RAAMP in its aim to make life more meaningful to rural dwellers across the country.

“The redesign of the naira notes will improve our monetary policy transmission mechanism and our financial inclusion drive.

India vs New Zealand 1st ODI Highlights: Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner almost foiled India's party with their stunning knocks, but it was the hosts who eventually ended up on the winning side in Hyderabad. Rohit Sharma and Co. kicked-off the series with a 12-run victory, which also saw them go 1-0 up in the three-match series. Chasing 350, New Zealand got off to a slow start and lost half their side inside 25 overs. However, a solid partnership between Bracewell and Santner kept New Zealand in hunt. The pair added 162-runs for the seventh wicket, with Santner chipping with a 45-ball 57. Despite losing his partner, Bracewell kept things moving for New Zealand as he was the final man to depart. He was trapped LBW for 140 off 78 balls by Shardul Thakur in the final over. Earlier in the day, Shubman Gill smashed 208 off 149 balls to help India pile an enormous 349/8 in 50 overs.

The 23-year-old smashed 208 off 149 balls to take the record from compatriot Ishan Kishan, who has held it for less than a month following his own exploits against Bangladesh.
Gill opened the batting with Rohit Sharma, who is personally responsible for three of the 10 double centuries in men's ODI cricket, and dominated the Black Caps bowlers with nine sixes and 19 fours.
India posted 349-8, with Rohit (34) and Suryakumar Yadav (31) offering support, before seemingly coasting to victory when the tourists were reduced to 112-5 at the halfway stage.
Bracewell performed wonders from number seven, blazing away to make a thrilling 140 in just 78 balls, with the all-rounder firing 10 maximums and 12 fours to help conjured an exciting finale.
The all-rounder put on 162 in only 102 balls with Mitchell Santner to stun the crowd at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, the third-highest seventh-wicket partnership in ODIs, with Santner reaching 57 before falling to Mohammed Siraj (4-46).
New Zealand required 20 from the final over but saw Bracewell trapped lbw by Shardul Thakur (2-54) with four deliveries left, allowing India to close out a 12-run win and move 1-0 up in the three-match series.
The ODI series continues in Raipur on Saturday, before the final match takes pace in Indore on Tuesday. India and New Zealand will then contest a three-match T20 series, beginning in Ranchi on January 27.
