There is some disappointing news coming into the Transfer Tavern today for fans who have their allegiances north of the English border, and in particular those boozy lads who love a trip to Hampden Park to support Celtic.
The reigning Scottish champions, who have struggled to keep up with the pace in the Scottish Premier league this season, were thought to be in the race to sign Real Madrid youngster Martin Odegaard on loan this January, in a bid to boost their attacking prowess.
However, Talksport are today reporting that they are set to miss out on this coup, with Spanish domestic side Rayo Vallecano emerging as the new favourites to pen down the Norwegian youngster on a short-term deal in the New year.
Ronny Deila’s side had registered interest in the player over summer, but this was an unfruitful attempt to land the teenage sensation.
A few Celtic fans over by the jukebox here in the Transfer Tavern are all admitting that they would have loved to have seen the Real Madrid man at the club, and are desperate for Deila to go in again for him in January!
What do you make of this Celtic fans? Will this be a big loss? Will you win the League this season? Let us know below!
