Celtic transfer news: Rodgers targets Swansea star to ease Lustig worries – EXCLUSIVE

By original author as reported by daily express, Express Sport can reveal the Hoops are currently scouting the Swansea City right-back. Roberts, 23, who won his seventh cap for Wales in last night’s 2-1 loss to Denmark, has impressed in the Championship this season and can move for nothing next summer when his current deal runs out. Celtic have been keen to add a right-back for some time to provide competition for Lustig. Roberts boasts 21 appearances for club and country this season and his contract expires at the end of the campaign. Swansea are keen to keep their academy product but are aware interest in his signature is likely to grow as the campaign progresses. He has already spent time on loan at Yeovil, Bristol Rovers and Middlesbrough during his time under contract at the Swans. Roberts made his professional debut with Yeovil in 2015, where he played a full League Two season before heading back to Wales. Meanwhile, Christophe Berra has given Hearts a huge lift by returning to training three months ahead of schedule. The skipper tore a hamstring in the August win over Rodgers’ Celtic but now hopes to make his return against Rangers on December 2. Manager Craig Levein said: “Christophe joined in with the warm-up and passing …read more

‘Off Your Head’ – Celtic Must Start Midfielder When Fit Says Sutton

By CeltsAreHere First published by celtsarehere.com CHRIS SUTTON believes Brendan Rodgers would be ‘off his head’ if he was to keep Scott Brown on the bench when he returns to full fitness. There has been an argument for keeping the squad unchanged with the recent run of results showing Callum McGregor in Brown’s role can work very well. However, the former Celtic striker believes while Brown is at the club he should always have a place in the starting XI. Sutton cannot imagine a Celtic team that goes into a cup final and important away days without their captain. While it would be harsh for any Celtic star to be dropped in order to bring Brown straight back into the team, it does make sense you want Brown in the heart of midfield for some intense battles. Not just that but having the player on the field is a big phycological boose in these sorts of games. As captain, Brown has overseen every single one of Brendan Rodgers cup and league wins. His intensity in the huddle to get the bhoys ready and his fearlessness spreads through to others. Speaking about the Celtic captain, Sutton was certain he has to start once fit. …read more

It’s obvious that Lawwell has made these 2 big Celtic mistakes in the last year

By Luke Randall As reported by footballtransfertavern.com Celtic have been outstanding in the Scottish Premiership in recent times after struggling a bit towards the start of the campaign. The Hoops will have their eyes set firmly on securing a third successive treble under Brendan Rodgers, but advancing in the Europa League is still a big worry for the Glasgow side. Indeed, things haven’t all been positive for the club in the last year or so, with problems off the field halting their progress at times and really causing them trouble. Indeed, Peter Lawwell hasn’t always made the best of decisions, with a couple of transfer related problems resulting in a drop in form this season. With that in mind, it’s obvious that Peter Lawwell has made these TWO mistakes… SELLING MOUSSA DEMBELE Moussa Dembele was arugably one of the best pieces of transfer business that the club ever managed to complete, as he managed to help them secure a number of pieces of silverware by scoring 51 goals at Celtic Park. However, the Frenchman departed during the summer months as he jetted off to Lyon, which didn’t go down very well with supporters as their star man had just left the club. The Hoops did very little to …read more

Key player could leave Celtic next summer after being linked with return to homeland

By Crippy Cooke According to FotbollDirekt, Mikael Lustig could leave Celtic next summer, with AIK looking to procure the defender’s signature. Lustig remains a key player in the Celtic side but his contract expires at the end of the season. The 31-year-old has talked up the prospect of putting pen to paper on an extension, but there is a possibility that 2018/19 will be his final campaign at Parkhead. Lustig has been an outstanding servant for Celtic since his 2012-move from Rosenborg, making more than 250 appearances in all competitions, but his form over the last year has wavered. The Swedish international, who boasts 71 caps for his country, has played in 11 of Celtic’s 12 Premiership games this season, keeping Cristian Gamboa and Anthony Ralston out of the side. As per the Daily Record, AIK Sporting Director Bjorn Wesstrom admitted interest in the Celtic defender, saying: “I just have to stress very strongly here that this is a player who has a contract that is a year left and to contact him now, we must have Celtic’s blessing, and we have not requested that.” There’s a chance Lustig could yet sign a new deal with Celtic, but he may …read more

Celtic Should Go After This Australian Winger To Replace The Injured Arzani

By thedroid as reported by the4thofficial.net. Celtic have had an indifferent start to the season as they missed out on Champions League qualification but in the last month or so, they have picked up the pace and currently sit on top of the table. One can say the Hoops are still favourites to sweep away all the domestic titles once again even though they had a poor start and also an unsuccessful summer transfer window. One of the players they did sign was Daniel Arzani who was on a two-year loan at Park Head from Manchester City. However, in his first appearance, the Australian winger suffered an injury and is out for the season. Therefore Brendan Rodgers can look for a winger in the January market, and we believe the former Liverpool manager can bring in another Australian in the form of Connor Pain. The 25-year-old winger is currently linked with a move to Hull City who are struggling in the Championship. Rodgers had previously seen Pain from close quarters when he was the manager of Liverpool, and the Reds had gone to Australia for a preseason game against Melbourne Victory. In fact, Rodgers went on to specifically praise him after the game as …read more

‘Superb news’ – Plenty of Celtic fans actually pleased with injury news for once

By Jack Heale As reported by footballtransfertavern.com On Friday morning, it was announced that Kieran Tierney will miss Scotland’s games against Albania and Israel due to injury. Tierney is usually a mainstay in Scotland’s first-choice eleven, most than often playing on the left-hand side of a back three to be able to accommodate Tierney and Andy Robertson, who plays in the left-wing-back role. When Tierney doesn’t feature, like in last months loss to Portugal, Alex McLeish will usually revert to a 4-4-2 or a 4-1-4-1 system. Tierney has played in two UEFA Nations games so far as well as one international friendly for Scotland during this campaign.
