Things looked touch and go earlier today but Celtic pulled a late double swoop to sign John Guidetti on loan from Manchester City, and Stefan Scepovic on a four year deal from Sporting Gijon. Guidetti has been a Celtic transfer rumour since his 20 goals in 23 games stint at Feyenoord as a teenager in 2011-12. Now he’s on board, I’m holding out for news of Georgi Kinkladze.
Stefan Scepovic could have played his hand better over the last 24 hours; footballers are seldom accused of over-intellectualising their plans. Late interest from La Liga looked to have dealt Celtic a body-blow, but he’s ours now, and I’m pleased we got someone who was wanted by Spanish scouts.
That’s us finished for the summer window. Welcome to Celtic, John, Stefan.[calameo code=000390171586f6fbaa2ba lang=en page=122 hidelinks=1 width=100% height=500]
