Celtic – No more striker signings, hints Celtic boss

Celtic boss Tony Mowbray has hinted he will not be signing any more strikers during the current transfer window and has dismissed speculation that he could try and tempt Mark Viduka back to Parkhead now his Newcastle contract has expired.

Following the signing of Marc-Antoine Fortune from Nancy, Mowbray has stressed he is now looking forward to working with the strikers Celtic have – starting with tomorrow’s friendly against Brisbane Roar in Australia.

Mowbray told Sky Sports News: “Mark has been involved in a difficult season in England with Newcastle, but I would suggest that at this moment I think that’s pretty unlikely that that would happen (a transfer to Celtic).

“I am looking forward to working with the existing strikers we have got. We have just completed the signing of a centre forward – Marc-Antoine Fortune – and I am looking forward to try and gel our existing strikers together.”

Meanwhile, Fortune’s former Nancy team-mate Landry N’Guemo expects to finalise a year-long loan switch to Celtic on Monday. The Cameroon international defensive midfielder has said he is “really looking forward to starting (his) time at Celtic”.

Thats a shame, was looking forward to Celtic signing another 2nd rate striker and seeing him bag 20 goals in the SPL
