John Hartson has urged Celtic to bring in another striker before Friday’s transfer deadline day.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have the best forward in the league in Kyogo Furuhashi, but what is behind the Celtic star is the worry.
That’s why there have been several transfer links to forward players during this past week, including, Brøndby’s rising star, Mathias Kvistgaarden.
Bhoys legend Hartson reacted to those links and suggested that he has a ‘decent profile’ and he is someone that is ‘different’ to the departed, Giorgos Giakoumakis, as he told Go Radio.
It’s not yet known if Celtic will push for the 21-year-old’s signature, with interest there, but it seems to have ended, although, in this crazy world of transfers, anything can re-ignite at any moment.
Either way, Hartson shared his thoughts on the player and how he would like another number nine to enter the Celtic building, as soon as possible.

“He is valued at 6 million Euros,” said Hartson. “It’s a centre-forward, it’s somebody with a decent profile. They are looking for strikers. I would like to see another striker come in.
On never replacing Giakoumakis: “Well, he is different. He was a big physical player, Giakoumakis. He gave you something different to what Kyogo gave you.”
Some transfer movement from Celtic
Perhaps the biggest concern during this past week for Celtic has been the backline, even though the team has looked toothless up front during the past two matches.
It’s a big signing ahead of the Rangers game, and you would imagine, if his fitness levels are up to scratch, then he starts at Ibrox.
