Scottish side Celtic have not been themselves so far this season and have fallen short of the high standard they set for themselves last season.

Over the past few seasons, they have been a force to reckon with both in the Scottish league and in Europe, but there is of yet no reason evident enough as to why they have fallen off the sublime fork they have been in those years.

Part of their major problems this season has been the fact that they have conceded too many goals, and the second is that they have somehow managed to lose their clinicalness in front of goal.

While they are still working hard to improve their goal-scoring abilities, it seemed as though they are also looking to revamp their goalkeeping department as well.

The current first-team goalkeepers they have in their squad are Vasilis Barkas and Scott Bain but neither of both options has done well enough to claim and maintain the number one spot. They have both been out of form, making the club hungry to get reinforcements in the forthcoming January transfer window.

According to Anthony Joseph, a well-respected SkySports expert, Celtic have already made the decision that they will be signing a goalkeeper this coming winter transfer window following the dismal run of performances that have been shown by their first-team goalkeepers

Joseph claimed that Manchester United’s prolific goalie Dean Henderson was the number one option for Celtic as they inquired about taking the English an on loan – a request both Henderson and Manchester United declined immediately.

The second option on their list of wanted goalkeepers is Fraser Forster. Forster is another great option and would be a sensible addition considering the caliber of goalkeeper he is, but it remains to be seen whether he will want to make a switch and join the Scottish Champions.

Rangers look to have knocked Celtic off their perch and are looking on course to clinch the league title this season, as they aim to capitalize on Celtic’s frailties this campaign.
