As the transfer rumour mill continues to circulate Celtic, the rumours of who will be joining and who will be leaving will be firmly on the minds of the fans.
As Ange Postecoglou goes about his business quickly and, most importantly, quietly, the lack of rumours coming out of the club leave us all guessing and with an opinion who the club should be targetting.
And there is one player available who is attracting attention ever since he announced he would not be signing a contract extension at his club.
Discussing him, Paul John Dykes and Liam Carrigan certainly seem to think he could do a job for us.
Speaking on A Celtic State of Mind, Carrigan said, “I hope we are because I’m in a minority that actually really rates him and thinks he could.

“He’s not quite Celtic class at the moment but with the right training, the right conditioning and being utilised the right way, he could be a very good player for us.
“I really, really liked his performance for Scotland when he came in at the last minute and did superbly well. So yeah, I like him.
“I like his wholehearted approach. I think we’ve been kind of missing that, shall we say a wholehearted type of player since ever since Broony left.”
Wholehearted is certainly a word to describe his style. Available for free in the summer of for a nominal fee in January, Porteous is one that I think we should avoid.
His disciplinary record at just 23 years old is shocking. He has been banned for a total of 12 games for five red cards and a yellow card suspension.
Comparing that to Broony, the legendary captain only missed 11 games due to suspension in his ENTIRE career.
Let’s hope this one is body swerved by Ange.
