According to reports today and reiterated by Romanian journalist Emanuel Rosu, Celtic are closing on on a deal for Bilel Ormani.

The Cluj striker stuck two past Celtic at Parkhead a few weeks back and has apparently caught the attention of Neil Lennon as a result.

The Celtic manager spoke earlier this summer about bringing in a fourth striker and could Bilel be Set to swap Romania for Scotland?

The French forward came through the youth ranks at Marseille and was eventually released in the 16/17 season. Cluj picked Ormani up on a free transfer and he’s been playing for the Romanian Champions since.

Cluj crashes out of the Champions League this week and have dropped into the Europa League as a result. The player would fancy the move a lot more after his club failed to get passed Prague.

Celtic still have to qualify for the Europa League in Sweden this evening. If a disaster happened there would likely be no appetite from the Celtic board to bring in a fourth striker so any move could depend on the result in Stockholm.


  1. Is it not about if qualify for the Europa League and that is the only way we would need a fourth striker if we want to go the way to CL groups next season then we need a squad of quality players first we need to be number one in Scotland and with the new signings we make sure we have a group of players already at the club to bridge the gap next season look good quality strikers are hard to come by so we buy in quality players to do the jobs this season and next etc.

  2. Where is KT’s replacement? Where is the quality LB? Where is he Celtic? Weakest team for 3 years going to Ibrox on Sunday. Absolute joke. Yet we keep buying wingers and strikers. Sort the left side ffs.

  3. Dermot you had better do something about the way this club is being run. Not just recently but the past 10 tears with recruitment and with PL calling every shot. Perhaps it is YOU Dermot managing recruitment. Eh? I guess PL cannot operate without your say so. Get it phukin sorted. Call yourself a Celtic man? Big Club? You must be joking. Big support aye.
