Celtic are reportedly ‘targeting’ Gideon Mensah, of Red Bull Salzburg.

The media outlet, Ghana Soccernet, claim the Celts are ready to make a move for the 21-year-old.

The left-back was linked with a move to Spanish giants, Barcelona, after scouts attended a game against Real Madrid, where he played in a friendly.

Barca wanted a loan with the option to buy, but the deal broke down and Salzburg are likely to loan him out to gain some first team experience – to either Celtic, Gent, Zulte Waregem, or Sturm Gratz who are all reportedly targeting the full-back.

Meanwhile, with Celtic set to go to Ibrox on Saturday, Sir Kenny Dalglish predicted what might happen, he said: “I honestly think it will end a score draw, possibly 2-2.

“But whatever the outcome, the Premiership will not be decided on Sunday after just four league games.”

He added about Edouard leading the line, he said: “In contrast, Neil won’t need to go over and over in his head who will lead the line for his team.

“It’s Odsonne Edouard – all day long.

“The young Frenchman cost the club the best part of £9 million from PSG just over a year ago, and he looks every inch the part.

“His free-kick goal the other night against AIK was sensational.

“He has scored against Rangers at Ibrox before, and he will fancy his chances again.

“He is powerful and has a quiet confidence about him. I like him.”
