Celtic will battle Rangers for transfer of English youngster

Mulgrew, who is now at Wigan, told Sky Sports that he still keeps a keen eye on how Celtic are performing. "I'm obviously hoping Celtic win the league but we'll see what happens".

Hoops boss Neil Lennon now has Kris Ajer and Chris Jullien as his first-choice central defenders, while Jozo Simunovic remains injury-prone. Branthwaite now plays at League Two side Carlisle United and has impressed in the appearances that he has made this season.

Some Rangers fans ridiculed McKenna this season for poor performances with Scotland amid reported valuations of £10m.

It is perhaps a tad surprising that Lennon didn't consider signing Mulgrew when he returned to Celtic as manager, but it is probably for the best that both player and club move on.

Both sides are now on equal points going into Wednesday night's fixtures.

He was red carded in the 4-2 loss at Ibrox in 2011, but made up for that by crashing home a header in a 3-0 win at Celtic Park a year later.

It is good to see that a former player still keeps an eye on how the Hoops are doing, and Mulgrew is very clear that he hopes that Celtic make it nine in a row this season.

Both Celtic and Rangers are challenging for the Scottish Premiership title this season, and Branthwaite could enhance their chances of winning it.

Celtic could do with some quality cover at the back as their pursuit of the Premiership and Scottish Cup continues next year, while they are also looking to go far in the Europa League after qualifying for the last-32.
