Celtic made their first signing of the January transfer window on Saturday, announcing that West Bromwich Albion winger Oliver Burke will be joining on loan until the end of the current season.

With no option to buy, it’ll be a short stay in Glasgow for the Baggies man, but Brendan Rodgers and his recruitment team clearly believe he has the quality to help the team in the Scottish Premiership title race.

Burke has had a high-profile start to his career, twice breaking the transfer record for a Scottish player after his move from Nottingham Forest to RB Leipzig then to West Brom.

The 21-year-0ld hasn’t quite lived up to the hype so far but is still considered to have plenty of potential, which will hopefully be unlocked by the coaching team at Lennoxtown.

Some Celtic fans aren’t entirely convinced by the acquisition though, feeling that the terms of the deal are not beneficial to the club.

Should we be trusting our own young players over the next six months rather than Burke?

These supporters took to Twitter this weekend to share their thoughts…
