‘Pathetic’ ‘The Celtic Biscuit Tin Is In Full Flow’ Fans Critical Of Board Following Reports Of Tierney’s Potential Replacement

Celtic are interested in Rapid Vienna left-back Boli Mbombo, according to reports in the Scottish media.

Despite having rejected bids from Arsenal for Kieran Tierney, it appears the Hoops are looking for a possible replacement.

Mbombo could be available for just £3m and supporters on Twitter think the club are likely to keep hold of most of the cash from Tierney’s potential sale:

It is believed that Mbombo is not the only fullback that Celtic are considering. Jose Cifuentes is also reportedly a target, with the Ecuadorian also interesting Manchester City.

Kilmarnock’s Greg Taylor is also said to be an option but a move for Nice’s Romain Perraud has been ruled out as being too expensive.

Considering the fact that the club have yet to spend all of the £19m they received from Lyon for Moussa Dembele last summer, it does appear Celtic are keeping the purse strings tight, especially if they agree a £25m sale for Tierney.
