With so much going on around Celtic, the club has not made any sort of moves in the transfer window apart from recalling Scott Robertson and Ross Doohan from their loan clubs.
The club announced today one outgoing; a loan deal between themselves and Ross County for young Celtic hopeful Leo Hjelde.
John Hughes is now in charge of the Staggies and has been looking to bolster his side this month to stave off the threat of relegation.

Leo Hjelde joins the Staggies on-loan from Celtic

The 17-year-old defender has a lot of admirers at Celtic and it speaks to their confidence if they’re willing to let him go out on loan to an SPFL club.
We understand Leo has already trained with Ross County this week and is ready to hit the ground running for the Highland club.
Celtic’s reserve system is non-existent at the minute and the more players they can get out on loan to gain experience, the better.
Leo has come in from Norway and had to adjust to life in Scotland during a pandemic. The player has already taken part in many first team sessions and it would be fantastic to see him get a run with County.
