Celtic need to get going in this January transfer window because right now we’re sitting on our hands and doing next to nothing to show intent.
Whilst Rangers go after experienced Premier League players, we’re chasing players with little experience at the highest level and not even getting close to getting them right now.
Of course, it’s early in the window but with a training camp on the way you’d have thought that we were going to get some new faces to come in and work with the squad.
No such luck yet, though, with Conor Hazard instead proving an exit from the club:

The news has hardly been welcomed, too, with most fans reacting to the news with demands that we start signing players.
Let’s see the best of what has been said:

Walking a bloody tightrope making stupid announcements like this when they look to have signed 2 players from the premier League……regardless of age and form, it shows intent!!!

Announce Peter Lawwell on a 6 month transfer to a non-extradition treaty country immediately.

I know, wait till the last minute like you did with McGinn. That way even the players that want to come wont come.

Celtic need to get moving soon, then, because it is clear that our fanbase is far from happy with the way things are right now – early in the window or not.
