Anthony Joseph is predicting two players leaving Celtic with two coming in to complete transfer business.
Ange Postecoglou has faced a massive turnover of players but effectively looks like being left with an ‘as is’ squad when the transfer window closes at midnight tomorrow.
Odsonne Edouard and Ryan Christie have been heavily involved in the season to date but it looks like Sunday’s match at Ibrox was their farewell to the club.
Crystal Palace seems to be the likely destination for Edouard with Bournemouth and Burnley linked to Christie who is currently with the Scotland international squad.
Celtic are braced for Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard leaving tomorrow. They have replacements lined up in Georgios Giakoumakis and Filipe Jota – that’s the priority before the transfer deadline. That could be it, though, unless there’s a shift in the market tomorrow.

Georgios Giakoumakis comes to Celtic on the back of a prolific season at VVV Venlo, finishing as top scorer in Eredivisie despite his club being relegated.
Kyogo Furuhashi looks to be Celtic’s first choice striker but after half a season in the J League it would be asking a lot for him to go the full distance of the Scottish season.
