Mad hatter silly season is well underway. We have been linked to a number of transfer “sensations” already but sadly Lionel Messi is out of the equation due to his ongoing contract discussions at Ibrox.
I believe over at Mordor they recently signed Zico, Maradona and Mario Kempes but sadly after the transfers went through, they found out they actually signed a Bee Gees tribute band. Well at least it gives rangers their only hope that they can now sing “Stayin alive” as they sink faster than the titanic if it was loaded with lead.
With our nearest rivals looking like a more proverbial “Alice” going down a rabbit hole and never returning, we meanwhile are looking like a fairytale in the making.
After overcoming a mountain of a points deficit behind our blue hooter-ed rivals, we persevered, battled and fought like spartans to now sit top of the league.
As with all battles some troops do fall slain and wounded. Kayal being now the most prominent of our injured due to the recent news that he will miss the rest of the campaign means that Lenny, after stating we will need a centre half and a striker, will now possibly look at another midfielder also.
One of our recent links more fresh in the media than others is Ivorian striker Boubacar Sanogo. The 29 year old, France based “hitman” is currently “being watched” by a few clubs but he has personally expressed his interest in coming to play at Celtic Park.
My view – He has been injury ridden recently and should not be a path we take, he seems like he is looking for first team football but I think he is looking for one last decent pay cheque.
Celtic have also “Gone to Iceland”. No, no, no the canteen at Lennoxtown is not filled with bread crumbed frozen foods but we have taken Icelandic winger Ingolfur Sigurdsson on trial. This news is also partnered by another trialist Rabiu Ibrahim. Both will play in bounce matches but yet any outcome as to whether they will be given deals is not known.
You may all know about this news (from sky sports): -
“Celtic boss Neil Lennon has admitted Rapid Vienna striker Hamdi Salihi could be a target in this month’s transfer window.”
This news is of the norm, a linked player as you see but the sensational dismay of this story is the headline: -
The sheer audacity of a media outlet to use such a headline along sides our team is a complete outrage.
Knowing very well our history and past with links to Ireland plus the recent clamp down on sectarian chanting, they go ahead and print a headline in the region I can only describe that as dog dirt journalism.
Your views and opinions if you please Celts.
