Celtic’s move to sign Carl Starfelt has apparently been successful but there won’t be an official announcement from the hoops or Rubin Kazan just yet.

Fabrizio Romano has been very confident on the story that he broke, if he had doubts he’d keep a distance away from it.

On Wednesday Starfelt was supposedly going through a medical in Moscow but after taking part in training at Rubin on Friday it seemed that the move was stalling. On Saturday Rubin boss Leonid Slutsky was talking up the record transfer fee but there hasn’t been anything coming out of Celtic.

The communications on this move are vastly different to the way that Kyogo Furuhashi’s move from Vissel Kobe has been handled.

At 3am on Friday morning the Japanese side announced that they had reached agreement with Celtic, at 8.30am Celtic sent out their social media announcements that the transfer was completed subject to the usual conditions and international clearance. On Saturday Furuhashi scored on his farewell appearance for Vissel.

Celtic can make two changes by 11pm on Monday to their squad to face Midtjylland but it looks like Liel Abada will be the only new face involved in the home leg the following day.
