Celtic round-up: Castagne 'bid', Weah interest, Sinclair ready for Rangers
The Daily Mail have reported Celtic have launched a £6 million bid to sign Belgian right-back Timothy Castagne.
Mikael Lustig could leave the club next month as he’s apparently a target for AIK Stockholm and Brendan Rodgers needs to prepare for life after the 32-year-old.
Castagne has made just seven appearances for Atalanta over in Serie A this season, but the Italians don’t want to lose him.
The player has admitted to feeling under-appreciated by coach Gian Piero Gasperini and is after moving in search of regular game time.
Celtic are supposedly interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain youngster Timothy Weah on loan.
Weah, son of George, has struggled to make a proper breakthrough for the French champions after debuting last season.
Rodgers has remained tight-lipped over the situation, and the Irishman will be hoping to get him in to provide some cover for the rest of the season.
Weah is an exciting 18-year-old, but just hasn’t been able to make his mark with the likes of Angel Di Maria, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe ahead of him.
Sinclair ready for Rangers
Scott Sinclair is anticipating going to Ibrox to play Rangers this weekend.
It’s the second Old Firm Derby of the season, and Celtic can put some daylight between the two sides in the Premiership table with a win.
At the moment, the gap is just three points.
Sinclair, scorer of a hat-trick last time out against Aberdeen, said as quoted by the club’s official website: “We’ll go out there, get our head down and make sure we play good football.
“Every game we go into we want to win. Once we win we’ll hopefully stay at the top. I enjoy those games. All the players are always up for it and the big occasions are exciting to play in.”
