David Turnbull would also have been signed if it hadn’t been for his knee injury.
However, just because it has been a good start to the transfer window shouldn’t mean that the club becomes complacent.
Right-back still required
They must still be on the lookout for new signings, especially a right-back. That is why recent reports linking the Hoops with Luton right-back Jack Stacy sounded promising.
However, it has recently emerged that Premier League side Bournemouth are also reportedly interested in the player.
Celtic could find it difficult to match the wages offered by a Premier League side. However, the Hoops do offer the chance to play in Europe and win trophies on a regular basis.
Can Hoops stave off Premier League interest?
It would show that Celtic are still an attractive proposition for players if they managed to stave off Premier League interest to sign a player.
It would also continue what has so far been an excellent start to the transfer window. The Hoops have a left-back, centre-back and midfielder signed up.
All that is really missing from the list is a right-back. Stacey may well be that player. If he is the Hoops’ number one target, hopefully he can be persuaded to join Celtic instead of a Premier League side.
