There are just under three weeks left of this summer’s transfer window and it’s time for players, agents and managers to make the big decisions that will shape their season.
For Celtic, it’s all about who they want to bring in but while the backroom staff try and get quality in the door, there are a few players set to go the other way.
This is the obvious one, but not a total foregone conclusion. After this weekend’s antics of the defender it looks more and more likely Celtic will cash in on the World Cup star but not before they have a replacement.
If the club doesn’t find a replacement they may keep the defender until at least January where he will be able to sign a pre-contract with any club he wishes.
The attacking midfielder is making the bench and has made a couple of cameo appearances since coming back from Aberdeen but the manager has told the player he may not be able to give him the amount of game time he wants.
With a good few players in front of Christie, the player spoke earlier this season of trying to make the breakthrough but it looks to be futile at this point. If a club shows interest in the midfielder it could be curtains for Christie.
If he feels he wants to stick around until January to try and change the manager’s mind – it will be a big gamble.
The midfielder has spent more time at Celtic Park this season already than many thought. He has not started a competitive game and he barely makes the bench. Rodgers doesn’t see much in the midfielder and has been told he can move on.
Hibernian are keen on Allan but have yet to make a formal move for their former loan star.
It’s believed Neil Lennon wants him back at Easter Road but his easiest path to an Edinburgh switch was shut down when John McGinn moved to Villa.
