KOUSSI EBOUE, Celtic’s £2.8million signing in the this month’s transfer window, has done the paperwork required to complete his move.
But the Ivory Coast midfielder will not feature in Sunday’s Scottish Cup fourth round tie against Albion Rovers at the Excelsior Stadium.
So, the Hoops fans will have to wait for their first glimpse of the player.
Brendan Rodgers said: “His visa has just been completed. He’ll be back, but not by Sunday.
“We’ll need to see where he’s at in terms of fitness, but after this weekend he should be in and training.”
However, there is a possibility of Kieran Tierney, out for over two months with an ankle and shoulder injury, making his comeback against the Coatbridge part-timers.
The Hoops boss revealed: “Kieran’s back and I wouldn’t be reluctant to play him.”
Rodgers is keen to bring in further signings before the closure of the transfer window.
He added: “If we can get the right players, we will try.”
