Celtic Consider Javier Garrido & Ched Evans Bid

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.

All good and well but i'm more interested in getting players in and getting us out of the great depression (may I add get us out of the crapper), City pull your finger out before we are championship bound promoting Coke-a-Cola!

Micheal ball doubt it would happen,although i would be interested to hear if the 2 guys mentioned in the article are any good.With ref to SPL being small fry compared to EPL yes thats correct alhough its incredible the amount of players both celtic/rangers have sighned from bigger leagues & have struggled to get a game!

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.

now now Tudor no need to be so cheeky,England has a population of about 45million so obviously your league will be better ,also stupid amount of money being paid to players & transfer fees which are putting clubs up to there eyeballs in debt this nonsence surely cant go on forever ?
12/01/2009 17:21:00
Yeah, but we (City) don't have money worries. Point taken about being cheeky. I've just climbed off my high horse!! (lol)
12/01/2009 17:37:00
Excuse me the arabs will only lend man city the money eventually it has to be paid back as chelsea are having to do with abramovich!
12/01/2009 18:04:00
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.
