Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has claimed that he hasn’t given any thought to players leaving in the January transfer window as he seeks to add more players to his squad.
The Hoops manager did admit though that if a player potentially wanted to leave Parkgead then he wouldn’t stand in their way.
“My idea for this month is to strengthen the squad so I haven’t thought of losing anyone” the Northern Irishman said, as quoted by The Herald.
“If something came in that was difficult for the club and if the player wants to go then that’s another point.
“I’d never want a player at Celtic if he didn’t want to be there. Most importantly I would need the right replacement to come in.”
The Bhoys have signed two players so far in January, with centre-back Marvin Compper joining from Leipzig and winger Lewis Morgan joining from St Mirren, although he won’t be arriving at Celtic Park until the summer.
Despite plenty of speculation surrounding the likes of Moussa Dembele, no first-team players have yet let the Scottish Premiership league leaders in January.
The Bhoys are in the process of completing their winter break in Dubai, and they return to domestic action against Brechin in the Scottish Cup on Saturday as they look to achieve the unprecedented feat of back-to-back domestic trebles.
The Brechin match is the beginning of a busy schedule which includes the upcoming Europa League last 32 clash against Zenit. It will be intriguing to see if Brendan Rodgers makes any further additions to his squad to have a real go at Europe.
