Former Scotland international Barry Ferguson has admitted he is surprised with the kind of business Brendan Rodgers has done at Celtic during the winter transfer window.

The Bhoys have already wrapped up deals for Oliver Burke, Timothy Weah and Vakoun Issouf Bayo as they prepare for an engaging second half of the Premiership season in Scotland.

Despite losing out in the Glasgow derby and allowing Rangers to go level on points with them, Celtic still have a game in hand and will be aiming to win it for some much needed breathing space at the summit of the table.

However, Ferguson admitted he is surprised with Rodgers’ transfer strategy this month after Celtic confirmed the deals for players with potential rather than roping in experienced campaigners.

The Gers legend feels that Celtic could have used some experience in their bid to retain the league title and believes the fans may be concerned about the business done.

“I’m surprised”, Ferguson said on PLZ Soccer.

“I thought Celtic would have gone out and got a few experienced guys, who know, I mean you’re talking 300 or 400 games under their belt, as I said with the experience, played at the highest level.

“So I’m surprised by Brendan Rodgers with the kind of business he has done there.

“I know there is two weeks left and I’m sure the Celtic fans will be concerned because they will want a few players in as I said, with a bit of experience and a bit of know-how.”

Celtic return to action when they host Airdrieonians in the fourth round Scottish Cup clash on 19th January at Parkhead.
