“Now he has had time to assess his squad, work out what he needs and line up a few signings.

“The Japanese market is huge. There is always a slight risk though.

“Let’s just hope whoever hits the ground running because there will be no time to settle in. Celtic need wins now and the situation is not going to ease up in a few months time.

“It will be an interesting window for Celtic in January. I’m intrigued to see who he will bring in.

“If a player comes in from Japan and does well, he can bring tonnes of revenue into your club.”
