Rangers manager Steven Gerrard
Provan believes that Celtic could use the money they got from the sale of Kieran Tierney and the departure of Brendan Rodgers.
According to Sky Sports, Celtic received as much as £25 million as transfer fee from Arsenal for left-back Tierney in the summer of 2019.
According to The Leicester Mercury, the Hoops were paid a compensation fee of £8.8 million by Leicester for manager Brendan Rodgers last season.
Provan wrote in The Scottish Sun: “But the wise money should still be on Celtic, who could make the January transfer window a game-changer.
“Having made £8.8m in compensation from Rodgers’ switch to Leicester on top of Kieran Tierney’s £25m fee, Celts are holding the whip hand.
“Lennon has already hinted he’s looking for another striker. If he gets the right player in, Celtic should have more than enough to hold off Rangers’ challenge.”
Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 31 points from 12 matches.
Neil Lennon’s side are level on points with second-placed and bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers.
The Hoops have won the league title in Scotland for the past eight seasons, but this campaign Rangers are genuine challengers.
