We bring you the latest Celtic news from across the web.

Mulgrew on injury

Celtic midfielder Charlie Mulgrew says that he is four weeks away from returning to full training after a lengthy injury problem.

The Scotland international has been ruled out since the start of December with a knee complaint, but he is optimistic that his comeback is not too far away.

"It's getting better day by day," he said to Sky Sports. "We're taking it each day at a time. I came back too early last time. It's feeling a lot better now and we're looking about four weeks before I'm back in full training."

Deila on transfer policy

Ronny Deila says that Celtic are no longer able to compete with English teams for players in the transfer window and they, therefore, need to work to develop players effectively.

The riches of the Premier League mean that the Bhoys cannot match English sides' wage offerings, but he still feels that he has three players who can become stars of the future.

“We are also going to have good young players and you have to build up Scottish talent such as Stuart Armstrong, Gary Mackay-Steven and Liam Henderson," he said to the Daily Record.

Deila: more to come

Ronny Deila insists that Celtic still haven't reached their optimum performance levels and feels there are improvements that need to be made.

The Bhoys have progressed considerably in recent times, but Deila is not resting on his laurels and wants them to kick on further.

"There is more to come from the players," he said to the Scottish Evening Times. "We can get better. The attitude and the spirit is very good."
