CELTIC JOIN RACE FOR YOUNG DEFENDER

0

CELTIC are just one of TEN clubs linked with rising Ghanaian centre-back Abdul Mumin Suleman who will be a free agent in the summer.

The 21-year-old defender has been in the spotlight after a superb season with Denmark’s FC Nordsjaelland.

The Hoops have been alerted to the availability of Suleman who has emerged as one of the top prospects in Scandinavia.

Premier League outfit Brighton have also watched the energetic pivot while French club Strasbourg and Belgian side Zulte Waregem made offers for the player in the January transfer window. The Danish side, however, rejected their advances and still had hopes of the powerful 6ft 3in youngster agreeing an extension.

Suleman, though, has refused to sign and insists he will be leaving the club when his contract expires.

Gent, who signed Mikael Lustig from the champions in the summer when the Swede walked as a free agent, have also been keeping tabs on the player.

Mechelen, Brondby, Espanyol, Getafe and Nimes are also among the clubs to have scouted the back-four operator before the campaign went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Neil Lennon has been looking at strengthening his central defensive options with Jozo Simunovic coming out of contract and Kristoffer Ajer continually mentioned in moves away from Parkhead.

ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT…

CQN would like to thank our readers for their patience in the interruption to the launch of Alex Gordon’s latest Celtic book, ‘Fifty Flags’, which was due to be published in March.

Unfortunately, production of the tome, which thoroughly examines the half-century of seasons in which the Parkhead men were crowned Scotland champions, came to an unfortunate halt due to the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

The support for ‘Fifty Flags’ has been overwhelming and author Alex said: “The response to the book has been utterly astonishing and I can only say how totally grateful I am to CQN readers for their backing. I can only hope it will be worth the wait.

“We are depending on the printers letting us know when the run will commence and we are in their hands at the moment. It will be published this year and CQN will keep the readers up to date. Thanks for your patience, folks. It’s much appreciated. 

“Main thing, though, in these testing times is to take care and stay safe. See you all when we get the green light.”
