CHRIS SUTTON has used his Daily Record column to discuss Celtic’s transfer window and how it can’t be judged until the window closes, midnight February 1st.

The former Celtic striker’s advice to the Celtic support is to be patient. The Englishman’s adamant that if Celtic want quality they will have to wait until the bigger clubs have their ducks in a row.

The BT Sports pundit seems spot on with this analysis.

“It’s a game of poker. Clubs wait, wait, wait, then bang. Two days before the window closes all hell breaks loose.”

“Celtic are being linked with Charly Musonda from Chelsea, for example. That deal can’t happen until Antonio Conte has sorted out his plans and that’ll likely not happen until January 30 at the earliest.”

“It’s a game of chess and a game of patience which, in fact, may also have an effect on Celtic when it comes to players going out.”

Brendan Rodgers is a keen admirer of Charly Musonda who got a rare substitute appearance for the Chelsea first team at the weekend, setting up Victor Moses for The Blues fourth of the afternoon.

Chelsea are still making moves in this window but at the start of the month, it was believed the Stamford Bridge side were keen to send Charly out for first team football.
