Injury heartache, star man could leave: Celtic must now do this in the January market ASAP

The Celtic fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been delighted with most of their form under Brendan Rodgers since his arrival in 2016, though not all of the Bhoys in our bar are feeling all that confident heading into 2018. 

Indeed, our resident Hoops believe Rodgers needs to take his side relatively far into the Europa League to truly put his work in Glasgow on the map, with the Scottish Premiership title all but wrapped up. Still, as their shock 0-4 loss away at Hearts showed, nothing should be taken for granted on that front.

For many of our punters here clad in green and white, the club need to make more moves in the transfer market this January. With Marvin Compper having already joined to strengthen the club’s backline, Rodgers now needs to look elsewhere in order to get his squad into shape for European competition.

In fact, his transfer hand may have been ever so slightly forced following some big injury news in Paradise. Summer signing Jonny Hayes is thought to have suffered a broken leg during his side’s win over Dundee and will now need replacing, despite his relatively limited impact thus far.

With Moussa Dembele also touted with an exit this winter, it’s the attacking areas that should be of interest.

Having said all that, here’s a look at two players Celtic should target in January.
