Celtic news: Rangers legend Barry Ferguson teases HUGE Celtic signing | Football | Sport


That is according to ex-Rangers midfielder and former Scotland international Barry Ferguson.

Rangers recent beat Celtic 1-0 at Ibrox to go level on points at the top of the table.

Despite Celtic having a game in hand over their rivals, the signings of Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis have pushed some fans and pundits to name Rangers as favourites for the title.

Despite his optimism, Ferguson is wary of business Celtic and Brendan Rodgers could complete in the remainder of the transfer window.

“I’d be very surprised if he’s not got something very big up his sleeve between now and the end of the month and that’s why Rangers fans shouldn’t get ahead of themselves just yet,” Ferguson told the Record.

“Celtic are a wounded animal right now and they will be desperate to bite back.

“Timothy Weah and Vakoun Issouf Bayo look like a couple of excellent young prospects and they could be very exciting additions if they can hit the ground running alongside Odsonne Edouard.

“But will Rodgers allow himself to go into the second half of this season with three strikers who are pretty wet behind the ears?

“I’m not buying that for a second. Not when Rangers have just upped the ante by bringing in a proven goalscorer of Defoe’s quality and standing in the game.

“All that said the first thing to realise is Celtic will not just roll over from here on in.

“I watched an interview with Brendan Rodgers the other day and it seemed clear to me he is nowhere near finished with his January business.”

Ferguson doesn’t want Rangers fans to get over excited after their important win over their rivals, but does admit things are looking good for his former side.

“Now though the whole game has just been changed,” Ferguson said.

“I look at Davis and Defoe joining the camp in Tenerife and I think, ‘Here we go!’.

“Overnight a team that went into the shutdown with a chance of taking Celtic all the way now looks like one that truly believes it will. Like a proper Rangers team should.

“There’s only one man to thank for that and it’s Steven Gerrard.”
