Celtic will be desperate to hit the heights of last season as they seem to be struggling to get to grips with the current campaign.
The Hoops haven’t quite met their usual standards under Brendan Rodgers so far this season, but there is still plenty of time left for them to improve. Although, things aren’t looking promising on the transfer front, as according to The Express, Rangers are ahead of Celtic in the race to sign Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall.
Both Glasgow clubs are interested in landing Worrall before the Scottish transfer window closes on August 31.
Rangers are said to have edged ahead in the race to land the defender, but Celtic have the financial clout to match any offer so they could still lure the 21-year-old to Parkhead.
Yet it may be a loan deal that comes to fruition before next Friday’s deadline, as it’s believed that Worrall may become available.
Celtic certainly won’t want to lose out to Rangers in the race for one of their reported targets, but this is what things are looking like at this moment in time with the Bluenoses reportedly ahead in the race.
Indeed, the central defender has established himself as one of the hottest prospects in the Championship over the years, but he could now move to Parkhead if they manage to lure him to the club this summer.
Brendan Rodgers is hoping to bring in a number of players this week, so perhaps the Nottingham Forest defender will be one of those additions.
