Deadline day is as it should be. Celtic have completed the business which they hope will see them through to the title in May (or April). There is a sub-squad of peripheral players who may get a loan, while Giorgos Giakoumakis is expected to leave for Atlanta in the North American closed shop. The MLS window is open until April, which introduces an anomaly for Celtic to consider.
With two in and two out in defence, a striker in and Giorgos probably heading out, the first team squad is net up a central midfielder – Tomoki Iwata. Without closing doors on development opportunities open to our recent additions, it is hard to see the value in adding new bodies without others going out.
