Thursday major pod
Alistair will most likely ask for a decent fee. We have a right-back in the club at the moment; Josip Juranović and Anthony Ralston. If talks are at an advanced stage as reported by multiple sources, then you have to imagine Joranović is headed towards a high-profile Celtic exit.Read:Paul Pogba’s brother Mathias has been CHARGED and detained over alleged extortion plot
Angie made it clear that he would not hesitate to sell one of his superstars in an effort to help his team develop. Juranović could be the first major Ange signing to come out for a very large fee.
We need to be realistic when it comes to our lineup. If we have confidence in the manager, no one coming off the pitch should frighten the fans.
We’ve done some research on Johnston and he seems like a really exciting player who would fit in well with Anji’s ball.
