The 8 Celtic first-team stars who could depart the club in January

Celtic could be set for an intriguing January transfer window.

Neil Lennon's men will have already played the Betfred Cup final by the time the window opens but in the new year they will be fighting on three fronts: Scottish Premiership, Scottish Cup and Europa League. The club may well look to strengthen their already strong squad to handle the demands of so many games.
