Celtic look set to land a former player from their crosstown rivals in Ciaran Dickson after images of the midfielder holding up a Hoops shirt emerged, as reported by Glasgow Live.
The Lowdown: Deadline day business
Dominic McKay has already been extremely busy in his first summer as CEO, bringing in nine new players for Ange Postecoglou.
That looks to increase to 11 on deadline day, with striker Georgios Giakoumakis and winger Filipe Jota set to arrive at Parkhead.
However, it seems as if another player could well arrive in Glasgow in Dickson, who left fierce crosstown rivals Rangers this summer.
How would you rate Celtic's window?
It's been alright!
Not good at all!
The Latest: Dickson’s Celtic image
As reported by Glasgow Live, the 19-year-old has been pictured at Celtic Park holding up a Hoops shirt with his name and number 51 on the back in an apparent signing image.
Dickson was released by the Gers in the summer after penning a three-year deal in January and now looks set to remain in Glasgow with a prospective move to Celtic.
The Verdict: Smart
Celtic appear to be building for the future, with seven of the club’s nine additions this summer 26 years of age or younger. With that in mind, adding Dickson – who Steven Gerrard described as ‘terrific’ – could be a smart move in the long run.
The teenager is a free agent and can play as a central, attacking or right midfielder, so his versatility could come in handy further down the line. It would also be immensely satisfying to snap up a player who had previously looked like being a hot prospect for their fiercest rivals.
