How do emergency loan deals work?

Pretty sure you have to prove extenuating circumstances to the SFA (eg - Doctors lines for all goalkeepers, prove all strikers on jury duty, provide death certificate for the auntie of five brothers all in the one team etc) and each situation is treated on a case by case merit basis.

From PFA site:

-Emergency loans: these loans are only available to clubs in the Championship, League 1 and League 2 not to Premiership clubs and are for a minimum period of 28 days and maximum period of 93 days. The same restrictions as outlined in Standard loans apply. Furthermore no club can bring in any player after 31 March except in emergency circumstances and any such registration requires the specific approval of the SPFL Board.

-Standard loans: are available until the next transfer window or effectively until the end of the season. Clubs can have a maximum of four players on loan, three of whom must be under 21. Clubs can have two players on loan from the same club as long as that club is in a different division. However clubs can only take one player on loan at any time from a club in the same division.

It works if you're pals with the big team and you're the wee then you beg them for any players possible.

When the guy running the game is part of the big team then there is no issues with it at all and will pass any emergency loan criteria.

I understand it for goalies but that's why you've a squad!

Yeah you might have centre backs out but you make do with what you have and shuffle about some players. Championship clubs should be questioning this

Heard that Raith were refused an emergency loan with all their 3 keepers out injured and had to play Ryan Stevenson in goal. Hibs surely could have promoted a central defender from their super development squad.

They weren't refused. They asked for a postponement as they couldn't get anyone in.

So what's an extenuating circumstance in that scenario of already extenuating circumstances?
