Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Celtic haven’t completed the signing of Vakoun Issouf Bayo.

The striker has already said farewell to fans of Dunajska Streda but is still waiting to get a work permit and get his move ratified.

With Leigh Griffiths unavailable bringing in another striker was a priority of the January transfer window. Odsonne Edouard was used as a substitute in the matches at Pittodrie and Ibrox with Mikey Johnston starting the fixture against the tribute act.

Bayo is the only permanent signing that Celtic have made this month with the deals for Timo Weah and Oliver Burke coming in on loan.

Bringing in defenders is a priority for the hoops boss with Filip Benkovic and Dedryck Boyata unlikely to be available beyond the end of this season.

On Saturday Celtic return to action with a home tie in the Scottish Cup against Airdrie United/Clydebank.
