CELTIC’S January transfer window continues to gather pace with the signing of young Irishman Johnny Kenny coming hot on the heels of our Japanese trio of Daizen Maeda, Yosuke Ideguchi and Reo Hatate.
There’s no doubt we needed to bring in quality additions in key areas across the squad, and we look to have done so fairly well so far with left back and goalkeeper perhaps the other priority areas that Ange Postecoglou will still look to strengthen.
Going the opposite way in the revolving door are young midfielders Liam Henderson to Hibs (Loan deal with a view to a permanent move) and Liam Shaw to Motherwell (Loan deal) and we expect others to follow across the remainder of the window.
The obvious candidates are players such as Vasilis Barkas, Boli Bolingoli, Ismaila Soro and Albian Ajeti who have all found themselves surplus to requirements in Ange’s new look Celtic.
Back to matters on the park and the anticipation is building ahead of our return to action against Hibs on Monday coming after 3 weeks without football. How we’ll line up is anyone’s guess but with indications that full houses will be re-introduced in time for the fixture it should be an occasion to savour for the fans and players alike.
Monday night football under the lights at Celtic Park. Bring it on!
