Deadwood fire sale to net a small fortune

Sharing is caring!

Various media reports are suggesting that Celtic stand to make millions in player sales and saved wages. Anthony Stokes, Colin Kazim Richards and Carlton Cole have all left Celtic without it costing the club as much as Craig Whyte paid for the Oldco.

Fellow striker Stefan Š?epovi? may well move onto Getafe after last season’s loan deal. The £2.3 million man has been offered to Getafe as part of a permanent move deal which would go a long way to recouping Celtics outlay.

Nadir Ciftci struggled at Celtic and wants to make his loan move permanent. He was quoted as saying:  “I would prefer to stay with Eskisehirspor if they make an offer for me in the next transfer window. I’ve enjoyed my football here and I love the club.” Lets hope that an offer does come.

As the forward line is cleared out, the saved wages from these 5 along with a couple of transfers can be put into a big name signing. Like the signing of Rodgers himself, a star player will state the intent of the Celtic Football Club on the European stage.

Our defense is also reported to be on the move with Izaguirre fielding offers from Spain and his native Honduras. With Kieran Tierney on the rise, the money saved from his wages can be put into an upgraded contract for KT to keep the wolves at bay.

Efe Ambrose always seems to elicit interest from English clubs who obviously have never seen him play. The next offer that comes u must be accepted. Even if the offer is less than price of Ibrox’s naming rights.

Boyata has been unimpressive whenever called upon and should be looked to be sold on, there is no point loaning someone out who spent the majority of his time at Manchester City on loan. He hasn’t improved at either club and our shirts do not shrink to fit players of his level of skill.

Lustig must be a bit nervous after a poor season fro Celtic was compounded with a groin injury playing for Sweden. If he fits into the managers plans then good, if not there will be no shortage of Scandinavian clubs willing to take a current Swedish International off our hands.

Whilst i hope Tom Rogic stays there have also been reports of the Australian Internationalist going to Arsenal in a £7 million move. The young creative midfielder however will be vital to Celtic unlocking continental defences and hopefully will be offered a new deal.

James Forrest turned down a new contract before the end of the season and will likely be sold if an offer comes in, unless of course he comes back to the club with his tail between his legs now that we have a new Gaffer. Should he move on he could garner half a million or more.

Celtic are also in line to earn £1.1 million from an on selling clause in the contract of Wanyama. This coupled a few sales and further releases will serve to make this a very lucrative period for Celtic. We are actually making and saving money without kicking a football.

Celtic supporters have a new form of transfer anxiety, instead of watching Virgil, Wanyama, Forster, Ledley, Mathews, Hooper and more refuse new deals and sign elsewhere, we are actually waiting to see who will come in whilst being content that Griffiths, Biton, Tierney and Sviatchenko will not be sold.

The challenge for Brendan Rodgers is great, but it is luxury to be paid for what you don’t want after having already been given a 15 million pound war chest. With season ticket sales continuing to grow and a record shirt sponsorship deal in place, there could hardly have been a better time for Brendan Rodgers to arrive.
