Even though Erik Sviatchenko has completed his loan move back to FC Midtjylland until the end of the season, it seems unlikely that Brendan Rodgers will step into the transfer market to make up the numbers with a replacement.
Rodgers seems to be satisfied with the players who make up his centre-backs and the loan exit for senior player Sviatchenko proves that he has drawn a line under any more exits from his defence.
Rodgers is a fan of Dedryck Boyata and helped to rescue his Celtic career when it looked to be over back in 2016, and has made the Belgian into a first-team regular.
He has also introduced Norwegian teenager into the side Kristoffer Ajer into the side, who has seamlessly replaced Jozo Simunovic and has helped the Hoops achieve five clean sheets.
There is also new signing Marvin Compper,who at 32-years-old has the experience of playing in Germany and Italy could prove to be an invaluable member of the squad, particularly if he can become a mentor to Ajer.
The only way another defender would be signed is if another centre-back leaves, and there has been a lot of speculation about Jozo Simunovic, who hasn’t started a game after the 4-0 loss to Hearts.
If no further players are signed, Rodgers seems content enough that the players he has at the heart of the defence will be good enough to get the Bhoys through the second-half of the season.
