CELTIC is said to be linked to Bevis Mugabi in a report from the Scotsman. The Motherwell player’s contract is up in the Summer but Celtic are believed to be interested in adding the Ugandan to their squad this month.

The possible signing of the defender is a surprise, with Celtic strong in the center of defence at the moment. Carl Starfelt has a brilliant relationship with Cameron Carter-Vickers, who Celtic have opened negotiations with Spurs over a potential permanent deal. Stephen Welsh also offers back-up to the pair.

Chris Jullien is due back from his year-long absence soon, he will be looking to force his way back into the starting eleven, with Postecoglou describing him as a “new signing”.

Even if Celtic were looking for a defender currently in the league to add to their squad there are better options out there I believe, like John Souttar who is in the same position as Bevis Mugabi having entered the final six months of his contract. However, reports suggest he is keen on a move down south.

All in all, this move doesn’t seem too realistic and should be filed under the ‘paper talk’ category at the moment.


  1. This must be a different Carl Starfelt to the one i have been watching.

    Maybe the author left a few word out. ..

    “Off the field Carl Starfelt has a brilliant relationship with Cameron Carter-Vickers,”

  2. I will tell you what that big boy Bevis Mugabi can put himself about he looks like he would add more than we have i am sure ANGE knows he would fit in like a glove at the back buy him

  3. I like Mugabe.. this may be a back up if the CCV talks breakdown.. either way I would get him or Soutar on a pre- contract ?
