Perraud deal unlikely after Celtic learn wage demands
Celtic’s move for Romain Perraud looks to be off after the Scottish champions learned of his wage demands. The 21-year-old had been linked with a move to Celtic Park ahead of next season after impressing the Hoops while on loan at Paris FC in 2018/19. Perraud featured 32 times for the Ligue 2 side, scoring five goals and providing one assist as the team from the French capital finished fourth in their division. It seemed as though the left-back was a player who had been identified as a potential replacement for Kieran Tierney, who has been the subject of a bid from Premier League club Arsenal.

Celtic got their Champions League qualifying campaign off to the perfect start after goals from Mikey Johnston, Odsonne Edouard and Scott Sinclair saw them run out 3-1 winners against FK Sarajevo after an early scare.
Despite the Hoops dominating the early possession, it was the hosts who carved out the first chance of the game.
A ball in behind Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo allowed Sarajevo’s front-man in on goal, but Scott Bain stood up well to block the effort.
Before the half-hour mark, Celtic found themselves a goal down. A mix-up at the back saw Jozo Simunovic give away a needless corner that was delivered into a great area before Mirkos Oremus eventually slammed home from close range.
Christie not surprised by Arsenal's Tierney interest
He has become a key player for Celtic, despite a slow start to his career in the East End of Glasgow, and Ryan Christie is now on the brink of a return to the first team after an injury lay off. Speaking live on Sky Sports News, the midfielder opened up about the major talking point surrounding the club at the moment – the potential loss of Kieran Tierney. Christie explains why he feels no surprise that teams like Arsenal are interested in signing his teammate: “There’s no surprise because of how good a player he is, and how well he’s played over the last couple of seasons.

Sarajevo looked dangerous after this on the break, with the home fans making plenty of noise, but they were soon silenced six minutes later.
Mikey Johnston cut inside with some tidy footwork before unleashing a stunning strike into the top corner from outside the box to equalise and calm things down for the visitors.
James Forrest nearly took advantage of a lull in the Bosnian side’s efforts as he ran through on goal but couldn’t find the top corner.
Not long into the second period, the visitors went in front through Edouard’s cool finish inside the box.
With five minutes remaining, Sinclair looked to have settled the tie with his side’s third when Morgan’s cross found him in the six-yard area, and the Englishman pulled off a cheeky backheel to score.
It was a professional display from Neil Lennon’s men after going behind in Bosnia, and they should be comfortable sealing the deal at Parkhead next Wednesday.
