Recently, The Celtic Bhoys published a report which addressed Kieran Tierney's comments about his future. Seemingly, the Scottish international suggested that he was open to a Parkhead return in the future, claiming it is a club he will always have a connection with.

It remains to be seen whether or not Brendan Rodgers is keen to welcome Tierney back to Celtic Park. It would not come as a surprise if he was, considering it was under the Northern Irishman's management that the left-back played his best football.

GK - Tom Glover. Assuming that Tierney is signed, this would limit Celtic's transfer budget in other areas. While Glover may be an underwhelming signing compared to other rumoured Joe Hart replacements, he has decent experience at a good level, having come through the ranks at Tottenham Hotspur and has impressed in the English Championship this season.
