Celtic supporters spent last night drowning their sorrows in the Football Transfer Tavern, after watching their side get dumped out of the Champions League at the qualifying stage.
Ronny Deila’s side lost 2-0 to Swedish club Malmo, ensuring they exited the competition 4-3 on aggregate.
It is the second year running the Parkhead side have exited at this stage, and now Sky Sports are reporting further bad news for the supporters, with star defender Virgil van Dijk admitting he could leave the club before the close of the transfer window.
The Dutchman has been a key player for the Hoops over the past two seasons, and has been linked with Premier League clubs such as Everton and Southampton this summer.
And with Celtic set for the Europa League once again, Deila knows he faces a battle to convince his star man to turn down the lure of Premier League football.
A couple of Celtic fans over by the pool table here in the Tavern feel that Van Dijk is an excellent player, and would be extremely gutted to see him depart the Scottish club!
