The American has just spent time on trial at Rangers, alongside Matt Polster.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed he is interested in the left-back, who could potentially come in to provide cover and competition for Kieran Tierney and Emiliano Izaguirre.

The move would certainly be controversial.

Nakamura deal

Nakamura is a considered a Bhoys legend after spending four trophy-laden seasons at Parkhead following a £2 million move from Reggina in 2005.

The star was famed for his deadly set-pieces, and scored 34 goals in 166 games for the club.

Sutton wary over signings

Chris Sutton has expressed his concerns over Celtic’s signings in the transfer window so far.

The club’s former striker has labelled the captures of Oliver Burke, Timothy Weah and Vakoun Issouf Bayo ‘risky’ and believes that Brendan Rodgers has taken a punt.

He said, as quoted by BT Sport: “The jury’s still out. Timothy Weah has good potential but he’s not proven. It’s the same with Bayo. Burke’s also got a point to prove. He’s had a couple of big-money moves but hasn’t realised his potential.

“They’re in the development phase and with that comes a risk.”
