Celtic are facing a crisis in a very important area of the park at a crucial time in the season.
Senior player Craig Gordon suffered a knee injury in the 1-0 win over Hibernian, an injury described by Brendan Rodgers as “serious” and one which may well prompt him to move into the transfer market for a new goalkeeper.
With youth shot-stopper Conor Hazard having joined Falkirk on-loan for the rest of the season, the only tried and tested goalkeeper on the books is Dorus de Vries, who will become the new number one at Celtic Park until Gordon is back.
But if the manager is intending to look at bringing in a challenger to de Vries then Liverpool’s third goalkeeper Danny Ward is who he should aim to sign.
The 24-year-old Wales international will already by familiar to fans in Scotland for his loan spell at Aberdeen two seasons ago where he received rave reviews, whilst last season he helped Huddersfield win promotion to the Premier League.
Now that he is back at Anfield and finding game time hard to come by , having made only one EPL Cup appearance this season, Rodgers should test his old club’s resolve with a loan bid until the end of the season.
If Premier League giants Liverpool aren’t interested then the Bhoys will quickly need to move onto another target before the transfer window closes.
