A lot of Celtic fans are not expecting to see the club make any signings on transfer deadline day, responding to a tweet from Hoops fans @paulthetim on desired transfer targets.
According to @paulthetim, Neil Lennon’s squad could greatly benefit from the addition of a centre-back and a winger, given the unenviable injury records of Jozo Simunovic and Nir Bitton along with the sparsity of wide options (Mikey Johnston and Mohamed Elyounoussi injured, Daniel Arzani and Marian Shved rarely featuring).
Centre half and winger is a must today jozo and bitton are injury prone. Forrest is your only fit winger arzani and shevd are there but I doubt we will see them.

Celtic have so far completed two signings in the January transfer window, bringing in striker Patryk Klimala from Jagiellonia Bialystok and midfielder Ismaila Soro from Bnei Yehuda. Lennon said this week that he would be happy not to add any further to the squad before tonight’s deadline.
However, following the injury suffered by Johnston in midweek, Lennon has indicated that he may try to bring in a winger today (as per The Scotsman), while talkSPORT‘s Ian Abrahams claimed that Victor Wanyama may yet complete a return to Parkhead (as per The Scottish Sun).
These Celtic fans on Twitter, though, are not confident of seeing anyone coming into the club today:
Do you still believe in Santa Paul? We’re done in this window.
