McManus has added that the Hoops have had a more disappointing January transfer window than Steven Gerrard’s team.

 

Incomings at Rangers

Rangers signed 21-year-old Ianis Hagi - who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a forward - on loan from Genk on January transfer deadline day.

The Gers also secured the services of 24-year-old forward Florian Kamberi on a loan deal from Hibernian until the end of the season.

Incomings at Celtic

Celtic signed 21-year-old striker Patryk Klimala from Legia Warsaw on a permanent contract in the January transfer window.

Neil Lennon’s side also brought in 21-year-old midfielder Ismaila Soro from Bnei Yehuda, also on a permanent basis.

Title race

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 61 points from 23 matches, five points clear of second-placed and bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers, who have played 22 games.
