“Celtic’s Ultimate XI Post-January Revealed, Featuring ‘Incredible’ 5-Foot-9 Magician!”



“The January transfer window looms just five weeks away, sparking speculation about potential Celtic recruits. Brendan Rodgers, having already secured nine signings over the summer, sees the winter market as an opportunity for further reinforcements. If the Scottish giants experience a dream month of business in early 2024, here’s how their starting XI could shape up from February onward.

1. Andriy Lunin:

Veteran shot-stopper Joe Hart might make way for Real Madrid’s Andriy Lunin, identified as a long-term replacement for the out-of-contract English goalkeeper.

2. Alistair Johnston:

Solid performances from Canada international Alistair Johnston on the right flank suggest there’s no need for replacement.

3. Cameron Carter-Vickers

Impressive performances from USA international Cameron Carter-Vickers make him a likely leader at the heart of Celtic’s defense in 2024.

4. Liam Scales

Irish colossus Liam Scales, having established himself as a regular, provides stability and effective play from the left side.

5. Quentin Merlin

Reported summer target Quentin Merlin, a left-back, could bring attacking quality to the side, potentially replacing Greg Taylor.

6. Callum McGregor

Current skipper Callum McGregor, displaying reliability and solid performances in midfield, is likely to maintain his position.

7. Matt O’Riley

Denmark U21 international Matt O’Riley, if retained beyond January, promises to be a key figure in Celtic’s midfield.

8. Reo Hatate

Completing the midfield, Reo Hatate, with his goal-scoring ability, could remain influential for the Northern Irish head coach.

9. Jota

A potential dream signing, Jota’s return to Parkhead after his move to Al Ittihad, has been rumored, adding flair to the team.

10. Kyogo Furuhashi

As the first-choice number nine, Kyogo Furuhashi is expected to lead the line for Celtic, fending off interest from other clubs.

11. Luis Palma

Exceptional since his arrival, Honduras international Luis Palma should remain a first-choice option on the left flank, showcasing his difference-making abilities.

In this hypothetical dream XI, Celtic aims to build a formidable team for the second half of the campaign, bolstered by strategic additions in the January window.”
