Celtic Consider Javier Garrido & Ched Evans Bid

Google language translator


Scottish Premier League outfit Celtic are believed to be on the verge of tabling bids for Manchester City's Javier Garrido and Ched Evans.

The Scottish tabloids are reporting that Celtic boss Gordon Strachan may initially ask Mark Hughes if the SPL leaders can take both players on an initial loan period, with the option of a permanent move come the summer.

Celtic are struggling to cover both the left-back and striker positions and with Wayne Bridge moving to Eastlands from Chelsea last week, Garrido's first team opportunities have almost gone.

Welshman Ched Evans is another City player struggling to find his feet since his fellow countryman took charge of Manchester City last summer. With the SPL being small fry compared to the English Premier League, this might be just the tonic both of them need to kick-start their careers..

Can't they take Michael Ball?! Evans would be good to loan out but I wouldn't sell him.

No to a Garrido offload. They can have Ball. Evans does not look to have what is required to be brutally honest. Even so, I recommend they take Craig Bellendamy instead and cut out the middle man...

Is Garrido one of the players that has allegedly fallen out with Hughes? He hasn't featured at all recently even though most would prefer him to Ball at LB, or playing as a left midfielder. Curious, although it could be that Hughes just doesn't rate him. Does seem silly to buy a LB and then get rid of the cover. Could mean either Ball is staying or we're still in for Taiwo.

The SPL is a mickey mouse league. Just look at the amount of Scottish teams who made it into the Champions League knock-out phase - NIL. Look at how many made it into the CL - one and that was Celtic. Look at how good you lot were in the UEFA Cup. Crap. Nuff said me thinks.

Wrong when you say we have to pay back our owners, mind you, spot on when you say about Chelsea's financial state. I read somewhere that if Abramovich walks he expects the millions he's given to Chelsea back within two years.

With Eighthsin on this a Loan only for Evans, who is still a bit naive, but not garrido, for me has improved vastly under Hughes. This to me though has no legs, the squad is mall enough as it is without bring any other squad members in it is unlikely that we will release anyone in this window.
