Joe Hart and James McCarthy, both former English Premier League players, have been added to Ange Postecoglou’s roster this afternoon.
Despite the fact that some doubts have been raised about the acquisitions, Celtic supporters will be relieved to learn that new recruits will not have to wait 10 days to complete an isolation period, since both players are from the south.
The club has stated that Joe Hart will be available for the match, although McCarthy’s participation in the Hoops’ third round Europa League qualification encounter remains to be seen.
Postecoglou has until Wednesday at 11 p.m. to add two wildcard transfer options to his roster, which will allow them to play in any of the European qualifying matches.
With the club’s goalkeeping difficulties, fans will undoubtedly be relieved to learn that Hart may play on Thursday night.
At the same time, even if McCarthy does not play in the first leg, he should be available for the second leg at Parkhead on Thursday.
