Celtic should tempt other clubs to sell their top stars by offering promising squad players on loan.

The Bhoys are reportedly in the market for a few Scottish bigshots.

The likes of Scott McKenna, David Turnbull and Liam Kelly have all been linked in previous windows.

The clubs will quite rightly wants the big bucks for their best players.

However, the Hoops can easily use their bloated squad to lower the price by loaning one of their own.

Celtic can offer midfield squad players to clubs

He’s a hard grafter that is also slick in his play – his Celtic time will be restricted due to others in the team.

The Hoops reportedly paid £3.5 million for him, so loaning him for the season to bring in McKenna makes sense.

Similarly, to get Turnbull, Henderson is an ample replacement for Motherwell to allow him game time.

Early signs are that the younger Henderson brother is a top talent who will be around Celtic for years.

Motherwell rightly wants the big price for Turnbull, but a Henderson loan can bring that number down.

Future uncertain for future squad player

Lewis Morgan will return for pre-season training in a couple of weeks.

He spent the majority of last season on-loan at Sunderland making a lukewarm impact on the black cats.

Celtic fans will love to see more of him to see if he has a chance.

In order to bring in another fantastic keeper such as Kelly, Morgan can be sent to Livingston to help the transfer.

They play good football and Morgan would definitely be the focalpoint for the team.

He won’t be too far from Glasgow and can remain in his base in Scotland.

It’s only common sense for Neil Lennon to offload a lot of these players this summer.

Some do have futures and have their uses as at the moment as being bargaining power for other transfers.
