Celtic won’t be looking to sign a goalkeeper in the January transfer window.
During the Europa League group three goalkeepers were used with the hoops losing 19 goal as they finished bottom of the group.
Conor Hazard has gone from third choice to the man in possession prompting speculation that another keeper would be a priority when the transfer window opens.
We have @Ginty1888 at today’s presser. We will break all the main talking points in The Preview for Dundee United which will be available this afternoon.
Neil Lennon has said that Celtic are NOT looking to strengthen the Goalkeeping position.
Huge vote of confidence to Hazard.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon isn’t looking to sign a goalkeeper in January. He has no targets for the transfer window as yet but is looking at options. “At the minute I’m quite content”.

Celtic need to make Fraser Forster an absolute priority in this January Window. Loan, permanent deal, whatever the big man wants, give it to him

It wouldn’t surprise me if Celtic did push the boat out to get Fraser Forster in January. He’s not played a game this season for Southampton so I can’t see them being that fussed about sending him back.

Give us a decent present and sign big Fraser Forster eh.

Fraser Forster back to Celtic in January is an absolute stick-on, eh?

Fraser Forster joined Celtic for pre-season training in June but the expected transfer from Southampton fell through without any obvious explanation.
Celtic switched their attention to Vasilis Barkas but despite paying AEK Athens a fee of £4m the Greek internationalist hasn’t looked convincing in his Celtic appearances.
Forster hasn’t played a minute of football at Southampton but hasn’t said a word about the failure of his expected transfer to Celtic.
Hazard has made five top team appearances for Celtic and is expected to be in goals for Saturday’s Glasgow derby.
