The Sunday Times Scotland has made two additions to its editorial team.
Ahead of the Rugby World Cup, it has appointed Mark Palmer as a dedicated Scottish rugby correspondent to cover the action at home and abroad.
The newspaper has also hired Michael Glackin as Scottish business correspondent to provide extra weekly news and analysis of the nation’s business community.
Palmer rejoins The Sunday Times after spells at the Scottish Rugby Union and M&C Saatchi.
Glackin is a former business editor of The Scotsman, producer with BBC Television’s World Business Report, and news editor of the London financial daily newspaper City AM.
