Celtic defender Marvin Compper finally appears to be leaving.
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has told The Scottish Sun that defender Marvin Compper is in talks to leave the club this month.
The Bhoys beat Airdrie 3-0 on Saturday evening, advancing into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup thanks to a Scott Sinclair brace and a Timothy Weah debut goal.
Celtic were able to blood two new signings in Weah and Oliver Burke, and more signings are expected, as well as some departures before the end of the transfer window.
One player that Celtic fans may be hoping departs Parkhead is defender Compper, whose move to Glasgow has been a disaster.
Celtic landed the veteran centre back from RB Leipzig last January, with Rodgers viewing him as the experienced head Celtic needed at the back.
Remarkably though, the 33-year-old has made just one appearance for Celtic, and has clearly been frozen out by manager Rodgers since his arrival.
His move seemed bizarre given his lack of opportunities, and Compper’s time at Parkhead appears to be coming to an end.
Rodgers has confirmed that Celtic are in talks with Compper’s representatives about an exit, most probably to pay up the rest of his contract.
“There’s nothing as of yet – the club are speaking to Marvin’s representatives to try and find a solution,” said Rodgers.
