Celtic will have at least two new Bhoys by the time they resume their battle for the Old Firm title, but will they be too good for the Rangers in the second half of the season?
Rival fans on Hotline are divided on the impact that Polish striker Patryk Klimala and Ivorian midfielder Ismaila Soro will have in the Scottish Premiership match.
Some Parkhead punters think it can give them the advantage as they try to recover from the loss to their rivals before the winter break, but Gers fans are not afraid.
Steven Gerrard has not joined his team this month, but the legions of Ibrox believe that the close-knit team is strong and that keeping what they have can be the key to crossing the line.
It’s the fourth round of the Scottish Cup this weekend, with Celtic taking on a trip to Firhill tonight and Gers hosting League One Stranraer last night.
But the league dominates the discussion with Neil Lennon’s men heading to Rugby Park on Wednesday while St Mirren visits Ibrox.
Joe Gilmour, fife, said: “Celtic will wipe out the Rangers with their two new recruits. I have seen a lot of Kilmala online and its goals and energy are just what we need to revive the team. “
But David Bryce, Troon, said: “The Celts are accumulating mediocrity. Sure, they’re spending some money, but the players aren’t of the required standard.
“We don’t want development players, we want proven quality. There is no chance that Ismaila Soro and Patryk Klimala will join the first team.
“We desperately need players to replace James Forrest and Kris Ajer in the first team urgently.”
IS Alfie Mullin, London, e-mail: “Patryk Klimala said he always dreamed of signing up for a great club. Why did you sign for Celtic? Are you hoping for a move across the River Clyde? “
Brian Hannah, Linwood, he said, “I’ve never even heard of these two new Celtic purchases, so I almost think Steven Gerrard will shake himself in his boots.
“We don’t need new players. Our union is one of our main strengths and the fact that we don’t need to dive into the market is testimony to the work done in the summer. A new signature could upset camaraderie.”
Sam Hagen, Kilmacolm, said: “I was reading Register online sportsEvaluation of the two teams of the Old Company and how Celtic was £ 115 million more and the Rangers about £ 80 million.
“It’s like Harrods vs Poundstretcher, but it’s not seen in the park since the Rangers have beaten Celtic in their last two games.”
Gerrard has warned that none of his key players are on sale this month between the interest of Serie A Roma in Borna Barisic and Leeds United which seems to be sniffing around Connor Goldson.
Gordon Ashley, Ayr, said: “Where are all these clubs that were supposedly ready to pounce for Alfredo Morelos and Glen Kamara?
“Either they don’t exist or they roll laughing after hearing the asking price and counting the goals after 13 games against Celtic.
“Dave King has to start worrying about this £ 10 million he needs to pay his bills.”
