"The Care Inspectorate is working closely with partners at Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership and the Scottish Government to ensure residents of the home experience a safe transition to new care arrangements. All residents have now moved from Rowandale.

"We have taken this legal action to ensure people experienced an improvement in their care following serious concerns raised during an inspection. The suspension of the provider's registration will allow for transition to alternative care arrangements.

"A further hearing is expected in due course."
