PETER LAWWELL has told the Celtic fans the club is looking to get two more signings over the line before the deadline next week.
There’s some ambiguity about this, with some fans asking if Rivaldo Coetzee is one of the players he’s talking about. Celtic has not confirmed the deal yet but Rivaldo’s club has – the deal is pending on a work permit being granted and we’re assuming this is the deal Lawwell is talking about.
The other deal is most definitely Patrick Roberts and the Celtic Chief Executive gave us a quick update.
“There are another couple of players we’d like to bring in and hopefully we can get them over the line.
“We are making progress with Patrick Roberts.
“There is nothing certain and we are respecting Man City’s position.”
The reason for the Patrick Roberts delay is Celtic want him on a permanent deal and are fully prepared to break their transfer record in order to do so while Manchester City would prefer a loan.
