Three new signings, no James Forrest: How Celtic’s XI may look after deadline day

Celtic could be in for a busy day of transfer activity with Neil Lennon aiming for reinforcements before tonight’s deadline.

The Scottish champions have been linked to several names throughout the window, so what sort of lineup could the Hoops boss select should he land several of his mooted targets?

How many signings will Celtic make on Deadline Day?







Three or more

Three or more

Three new men feature, a regular is dropped and a coveted Bhoys star stays – here’s the XI that the 49-year-old could select…


Vasilas Barkas has cemented his name as the first-choice shot-stopper at Celtic Park. It’s like Fraser Forster isn’t missed at all.

One new addition could feature amongst Lennon’s back three and that’s £10m-rated Omar Colley from Sampdoria who has been mooted with a switch to Scotland by Calciomercato.

He’ll join fellow summer arrival Shane Duffy and the colossal Kristoffer Ajer.

Lennon could also clinch a new left wing-back in the form of Diego Laxalt, who appears to be closing in on a loan move according to Sky Sports. Jeremie Frimpong is likely to get the nod on the other side.

Whilst in midfield, skipper Scott Brown will undoubtedly be a frequent presence despite his advancing years. He may well continue to partner Callum McGregor but emerging reports surrounding a move for a Premier League veteran should have Ryan Christie worried.

West Ham attacking midfielder Robert Snodgrass could clinch a dream move to his boyhood club, as per Sky Sports.

Alban Ajeti, when fit, could partner Odsonne Edouard, who stays at Celtic Park despite interest from the English top-flight.

It means there’s no place for Moi Elyounoussi, James Forrest or Christopher Jullien.

Lennon will certainly be hoping that Peter Lawwell can pull the rabbit out of the hat before 11pm tonight.
