The Scottish South of the Wall
For many years now, Rangers and Celtic have hinted that they would like to move to the Premier League to play at a higher level, as well as bringing more money into Scottish football. Recent changes have allowed this dream to become a reality. Nearly.] Pages
Really good signing in Robertson and good start in the Champions League, guess you won't be in it next year though or is there still a Scottish way in?
Larsson confirms the signings of Tom Huddlestone and Fraizer Campbell
Henrik Larsson,who after the two leg battering of Levadia, admitted to the press that he was interested in signing at least one more first team midfielder and a backup striker to rotate with Leigh Griffiths in the hectic schedule.
With the signings of Tom Huddlestone and Fraizer Campbell, Larsson has certainly completed this target of his.
Tom Huddlestone comes in as captain
In a somewhat controversial move, but one that has not caused too much of a fuss, Tom Huddlestone has been appointed the club captain within 24 hours of signing for Celtic.
It didn't cause too much of a stir at the club, as they had yet to officially replace Scott Brown as Celtic captain after his £20,000,000 move to PSG earlier in the summer.
Huddlestone brings more to the side than Scott Brown ever did, despite what fans might want to admit.
He can defend, with a strong tenacity to get stuck into the opposition at every opportunity, he is strong in the air, good in front of goal but most of all he is a very, very good passer of the ball.
Larsson said he was looking for a man to control the side from deep in
midfield, giving others the freedom to attack.
Huddlestone is the third player to join Celtic this summer, from Hull City, this time the transfer being £5,000,000.
Fraizer Campbell leaves Crystal Palace for £1,700,000
Henrik Larsson was addamant that his side needed a true back up striker, for the large amount of games that they were to fact this season. Leigh Griffiths was not going to be able to cope with the hectic schedule alone and Celtic needed to ensure they were banging in goals.
As a result, Larsson went for the cheap but proven Championship option of Fraizer Campbell, which has been well received by fans of Celtic. The striker has been frozen out of football for a while now, so he will be desperate to grab this chance with both hands.
Check out, read and comment on my story. Hope you enjoy
Huddlestone could be a great signing man and hopefully Campbell comes off for you!
