Celtic on the look-out for new signings

Brendan Rodgers says Celtic are still on the lookout for fresh transfer targets - but insists the Parkhead outfit are in no rush.

So far the Hoops have only signed midfielder Lewis Morgan - who has been sent back to St Mirren on loan - and defender Marvin Compper.

But the £1million signing from RB Leipzig has already suffered a setback before even kicking a ball for his new club. Compper has been ruled out for up to a month after tweaking a calf during Celtic's winter training break in Dubai.

Reports say Rodgers could now turn to Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic and Dundee centre-back Jack Hendry but the Hoops boss was reluctant to discuss the speculation surrounding his spending plans. However, the Northern Irishman did tell the Parkhead faithful they can expect more new arrivals before January is out - although he was non-committal on striker Moussa Dembele's long-term Celtic future.

"Yes I expect so," Rodgers said when quizzed on whether he had plans to make further signings. "I think that it is something we'll look to do."
