THE transfer grapevine continues to work overtime as the clocks tick down to the end of this month’s transfer deadline.
Celtic have now been linked with moves for Rijeka pair Dario Zuparic and Filip Bradaric and, according to reports in Croatia, are ready to slap in a double bid.
Defender Zuparic is out of contract in the summer while the club appear willing to sell defensive midfielder Bradaric, who has a deal that runs until 2020.
Of course, this might all be news to Brendan Rodgers as he prepares for the first defence of the Scottish Cup against Brechin City at Parkhead tomorrow afternoon.
The Hoops fans were hoping to get their first glimpse of new Bhoy Marvin Compper, bought from RB Leipzig for £1million earlier this month, but, unfortunately, the one-time German international centre-back sustained a calf in jury during the winter break in Dubai and has been ruled out for a month.
NEW CQN PODCAST OUT NOW FEATURING TOMMY SHERIDAN
A Celtic State of Mind presents its 30th instalment of insightful discussion around the culture of Celtic Football Club, the city of Glasgow, and fans of the reigning treble-winning Scottish champions.
Kevin Graham is joined by Scotty Alcroft to interview Scottish pro-independence politician, Tommy Sheridan, at The Penalty Spot in Glasgow.
The interview took place as part of A Celtic State of Mind’s first live event – Five-a-sides at The Penalty Spot – and, as such, there is some background noise (including mobile interference – apologies) from the audience.
The other voice you may hear throughout this episode is that of former Celtic striker, Frank McGarvey, who is a friend of Tommy’s, and who was also interviewed separately that day for a future show.
You are sure to enjoy Tommy’s eclectic input, as he discusses everything from Catalan independence to Coolio, with a constant undercurrent of that thing called Celtic.
