20 players Celtic could possibly target in pre-contract January deals

  20 players Celtic could possibly target in pre-contract January deals Celtic managed to bring in six players during the summer transfer window. AC Milan left-back Diego Laxalt was the final addition, arriving on a season-long loan deal. The Uruguayan joins Vasilios Barkas, Albian Ajeti, Shane Duffy, Moi Elyounoussi and David Turnbull through the door at Celtic Park, and the Hoops’ recruitment team will more than likely be turning their attention to the January window. The turn of the year also gives the club the opportunity to explore pre-contract agreement deals with players who are out of contract at the end of the 2020/21 season.

Rangers inflicted the first Old Firm derby blow in a historic Scottish Premiership campaign - and moved four points clear at the top - with a dominant 2 - 0 win at Celtic Park. Celtic - with five derby debutants in their ranks, including academy player Stephen Welsh at centre-back - looked unsure of themselves

Neil Lennon was forced to deal without Odsonne Edouard, James Forrest, Ryan Christie, Nir Bitton, Hatem Abd Elhamed, and Christopher Julien.

With the long list of Celtic absentees, this opened the door for a rare chance for 20-year-old Stephen Welsh, who joined four others from the Hoops in making their Glasgow Derby debut as Diego Laxalt also got his first start since coming on loan from AC Milan.

The visitors had the 1-0 advantage at the break after Connor Goldson’s eighth-minute header was the only goal. Celtic’s greatest chance came minutes after Goldson’s goal when Mohamed Elyounoussi’s glorious opportunity missed badly.

Goldson added a second for Rangers in the 54th minute after several deflections allowed the ex-Brighton center half to put the ball into the back of the net with great composure.

Celtic’s first loss of the season keeps them behind Rangers in second place but now trail their crosstown rival by four points.

Celtic will look to return to winning when they host AC Milan for the opening match of their Europa League Group Stage campaign.

Elyounoussi's Milan cameo has given Lennon attacking headache .
Celtic suffered a second straight defeat in the week, as they went down 3-1 to AC Milan in their Europa League opener on Thursday. However, one positive to come out of the performance at Celtic Park was the second-half display of Moi Elyounoussi, who, we feel, has now given Lennon a real attacking headache ahead of Sunday’s clash with Aberdeen. The Norwegian was part of a double change at the break alongside Ryan Christie, initially partnering Albian Ajeti in attack. Elyounoussi had really struggled for form in the past few weeks. He was the club’s worst performer in the 2-0 win over St Johnstone prior to the international break, with a WhoScored rating of 6.17.
