Celtic are not in good spot right now. The loss against Hearts left them at a mathematical disadvantage to the Rangers for the first time in this title race. Of course, Philippe Clement's team still need to win their games in hand, but they have been doing that quite well. And when it comes to momentum, all of it is with the Ibrox side right now.

The upcoming January transfer window is being viewed as Celtic's big chance to turn things around back in their favour. Some quality signings are required.

It remains to be seen how successful they are in doing that. Of course, it is very possible that they could make a number of 'project' signings once again, in hopes that things work.

In the game against Hearts, summer signings Maik Nawrocki, Gustaf Lagerbielke, Yang Hyun-jun, Marco Tilio and Odin Thiago Holm were not even included in the squad. Kwon Hyeok-kyu, who was in it, has not even made his debut yet. That goes on to show where they find themselves in Rodgers' pecking order and one has to wonder how much say he had on those transfers.

Scott Brown wants former teammate to make Celtic return

Celtic were linked with a move for Kieran Tierney in the summer as well, but it did not happen, and he ended up joining Real Sociedad on loan instead. Scott Brown would like to see his former teammate back at Parkhead as well.

It was in the summer of 2019 that Tierney left Celtic in order to join Arsenal in a £25 million Scottish record move. As reported by Glasgow Times, Brown said:

"I’d love to see him back at Celtic, I would.

“He’s loved by all the fans and it’s such a huge club for him. It was a hard decision for him to leave because the club means so much to him. But at the same time he’s been away for that long now and experienced different things. Maybe he wants to experience other things now.

“There are a lot of clubs in England who’d take him. In fact, there are clubs all over the world who would take him, to be perfectly honest. But Celtic have that pull over him which is a great thing. I’d love to see it happen one day. You never know."

Tierney would be a dream signing for Celtic at this point. But it is hard to see it happening anytime soon. Perhaps later on in his career, the Scottish left-back would be open to a return to Parkhead. But at the moment, one cannot see it happening for a variety of reasons.
