No to McTominay and still Nothing New on Broony or Lustig deals

WE’VE had so called signing targets in the back of taxis on the way to Parkhead while the club officials were busy ‘locked in talks’ down at Old Trafford and of course the speculation about whether Ya Ya has spoken to Brendan yet about a move to Celtic…

The guy in the taxi was on his way in an Uber to a radio interview. Ya Ya was just having a laugh and now it looks like Celtic weren’t ‘locked in talks’ to sign Scott McTominay on (another) loan deal. The Celtic Star hasn’t covered this story at all incidentally.

Now Man Utd’s caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Sky Sports that he does not expect the Scotland midfielder to be going anywhere in this window, so that’s another one off the list.

Celtic don’t need any more midfielders. We need a new right back and that’s where the focus is.

We also need to clarify what is happening with Mikael Lustig’s contract option – Celtic can extend for one further year if they want to – and also clear up the situation regarding Scott Brown and whether he is going to sign his new deal or head to Australia.

Brendan said that he had a long chat with Broony yesterday morning before his press conference but he had nothing new to report by the time he met the media.

Hopefully though there will be news soon.
