Celtic’s January transfer plan has been completely ruined

Celtic are in an excellent position in the league at the moment, leading Rangers by seven points. Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side are also showing no signs of changing things, as the Dutch coach seems to be running out of ideas and is feeling the pressure at Ibrox, with the fans behind him. But while the Hoops may be starting to feel confident in their chances of retaining the title, Ange Postecoglou has no plans to rest on her laurels.

In fact, Celtic are expected to wrap up their January business early once again and it looks like they’ve already laid the groundwork.

However, one of his plans might have been completely ruined after recent events. Earlier, Football Insider had reported that Celtic would be hearing offers for James McCarthy in January as they were keen to free up space on their salary bill and find a new club for him.

But now, as he tweeted plz footballPostecoglou has revealed that McCarthy is out with a major hamstring injury. That means he could be a while before he’s back in action.

Celtic’s January transfer plan derailed due to injury

Doubts arose when Celtic decided to hand a four-year deal to someone like McCarthy, who already had a long history of injuries and was 30 years old when he arrived last summer.

And it’s safe to say things haven’t worked out for him in Glasgow. Now, as it seemed the club was planning to part ways, he suffered what appears to be a long-term injury.

One would think that the recent injury, combined with his history of physical problems and his current contract, which is believed to be lucrative, would prevent many clubs from making offers for the midfielder in January.
