Alarm bells went off among Celtic fans after Neil Lennon stated that he’d be happy to go into the remainder of the season with the squad that he already has.

Whether the hoops boss was indulging in manager-speak before springing a surprise or two depends on whether your glass is half full or half empty. For many fans they were looking down on a near empty glass.

At the start of the transfer window there was an expectation of two ready made first team players arriving to drive the team on making an instant impact. With all respect to Patryk Klimala and Ismaila Soro they arrive at Celtic with similar pedigrees to Vakoun Bayo and Marian Shved.

Marquee signings are probably a thing of the past but it seemed reasonable to expect a striker with some sort of reputation to come in to support and compete with Odsonne Edouard.

As it stands it looks like the return of Moi Elyounoussi, Hatem Abd Elhamed and Leigh Griffiths will be the additions to ensure a ninth successive title with little margin for error at the top of the SPFL.
