Carl Starfelt tuned into Celtic’s first competitive game of their new season tonight. Posting on his Instagram story, the defender posted a boomerang of himself watching Celtic’s one-all draw with Danish side Midtjylland while enjoying a steak.
Fabrizio Romano confirmed that the deal to bring the 26-year-old to Glasgow was complete and should be announced soon. [Read More]

In tonight’s match, Celtic demonstrated how weak the defence was, looking weak at many points throughout the game despite a stand out performance from Steven Welsh. The signing of Starfelt would surely help solidify the centre of defence, meaning fans may not have to witness Nir Bitton playing the position again.
If Celtic were to announce Starfelt he will not feature in the return leg in Denmark next week. To be part of the squad, players must have been registered on Monday the 19th at 11 pm.
