Joe Ledley (25), Gary Hooper (24), Beram Kayal (24), Fraser Foster (24), Tony Watt (19), Adam Matthews (20), Dylan McGeouch (19), Victor Wanyama (21), Efe Ambrose (24) & Recently Rami Gershon (24). When you look at the players Neil Lennon has brought to Celtic with the help of John Park, David Moss and others it’s very encouraging. Some other names being lined up in this winters transfer window are Juan Agudelo (20), Tom Rogic (20) & Juwon Oshaniwa (22).
Dark horse Oshaniwa I must declare I know very little about added to Juan Agudelo described as “One of the best talents to come from the MLS” & Tom Rogic who is regarded very highly in Australia and overseas. I think Celtic have finally found the winning formula when considering players to bring to Glasgow. It seems the practice of identifying young talent in lesser scouted nations is paying off big time for Celtic.
With the last 16 game of the champions league against Juventus looming in February who in there right minds would have thought Celtic would have qualified from a group that included Barcelona, Spartak Moskva & Benfica. Of course we are all delighted to be in this position and many Celtic fans are now looking to see what else Celtic are capable of with this very talented young team.
Of course it’s not just the champions league Celtic are looking to win, being top of the SPL and in the two domestic cups Celtic will have to prove yet again that we are capable of challenging on all 4 fronts to win trophy’s. Someone we shall not mention once famously said “You cannot win anything with kids”. With this current batch of players and the great work of out academy Celtic are looking like they will.
More than likely Celtic will be taking a look at more players and listening to Peter Lawwell & Neil Lennon recently we could be in line to see a “marquee” signing before the end of January “if the right player comes along”.
As usual I and my team of highly trained monkeys shall keep you up to date with the latest comings and goings from Celtic Park with a smattering of CSC information, news & nonsense.
