THE BIG STORY: Celtic have once again been linked with Liverpool's soon to be out of contract Lucas Leiva, but according to the daily record we are battling with Brighton for his services. The player would be a good signing for Celtic, and as he is only 30 years old and we could get a few good years out of him yet, he would also give us some much needed experience for Europe. In other transfer news, West Brom are the latest club to be 'interested' in Stuart Armstrong, with the daily express claiming they had scouts watching him against Aberdeen on Friday night. Celtic really have to get him on a new contract soon or these stories will continue.

ON THIS DAY: In 2016, Celtic ended the Ronny Deila era on a high with a 7-0 victory over Motherwell. The game featured seven different Celtic goalscorers, including a goal for the youngest ever Celt Jack Aitchison with his first touch, and first Celtic goals for Kieran Tierney and Ryan Christie.
