So the deal was eventually done not the marquee signing most fans wanted but a striker nevertheless who i believe will become a top marksman,people can be quick to judge the lad has to be given the chance to prove himself,when he was at hibs Leigh Griffiths was scoring goals for fun in a mediocre hibs team,think what he will do in the current celtic team,stokes has been missing a partner and since hoopers departure chris commons has been the man for the goals…
it was the only bit of buisness into the club on deadline day,celtic already having secured the services of Holmbert Fridjonsson and Stefan Johansen.previously,one down side i feel was joe ledley leaving for crystal palace since signing in 2010 the welshman has been a consistent performer and il be sad to see him go,thats football as they say,id just like to extend my best wishes to joe in his new endevour,there was several loan deals for other fringe players inc Tom Rogic , Bahrudin Atajic ,and Dylan McGeouch,full list below…….
