Brendan confirms there's no buy option with the German what's that all about poor show.

{Ed007's Note - It's a bummer but it only means that there's no deal in place, if Toljan does well and settles there's no reason we can't try and buy him in the summer. Maybe the player didn't want to commit to anything, maybe as the clock was ticking the clubs decided to stop negotiating any sort of permanent deal and just get the loan finalised.}

Dortmund have Piscezk and Hakimi ( who is on loan from Real Madrid) in the RB positions at the moment. If Madrid decide to sell Hakimi to Dortmund in the summer that may well provide us with the chance to make Toljan a permanent signing if he enjoys his time with us👍.

Think the boy from dort und needs to prove himself here first.

It's marvelous we got him in the first place - even for a short term and he is one of four loans that will make a big difference to our campaign and challenge for trophies (in the here and now) .
It's still possible he (and the others) could extend their stay if all goes well and with several players due to leave in the summer, that should free-up more cash to fund further activity and add even more quality to the squad - making the progress BR has advocated.
ED007 may have a good point regarding the circumstances and it was also clear we showed a lot of ambition, scouting and determination to make this one of the best winter windows I've seen at Celtic.

It is a bummer ed the summer window will be interesting now.

{Ed007's Note - I can't wait.}

Let's wait until we see how Tolgan works out. In a couple of months we might be delighted we have him on a loan and not permanently . Hopefully B R will like what he sees and can begin talks over signing him permanently.

Maybe Toljan will be absolutely horrendous and we will be grateful we didn’t buy him permanently and send him back to Dortmund 😛. Before I get a backlash I’m kidding Bhoys.

I know it was tongue in cheek but you’re right Ice Man. Remember Tony Cascarino? I can see this becoming the normal way to do business in future as it reduces the risk for both club and player. It’s funny to think we were laughing at the Sevvies for this policy previously but it actually makes good sense.

I wonder what Lustig is thinking too. He's been magnificent for us and although I agree we need to replace him, I'll be sad not to see him on the pitch as often.

{Ed007's Note - Would you take Lustig for another year doing what Izaguirre's done, cover for our new RB whether that's Toljan or someone else? We could send Ralston out on a season's loan to get a run of games under his belt and trigger the year's option on Lustig's deal.}

01 Feb 2019 21:04:19
Lustig doing a lot better than people give him credit for but if rather see Ralston battle for the 1st team place next season.

{Ed007's Note - Do you not think Ralston would be better out playing every week and letting us see how he progresses AND how long he can stay fit for?}

02 Feb 2019 00:26:11
If Ralston was the first choice just now, and Lustig was were Ralston is just now, and if Ralston was performing like Lustig is just now, I think Lustig would be given a chance in Ralstons place,
There should be no place for sentimentality, players should be picked on their level of performance.

02 Feb 2019 09:05:38
I think Ralston was getting his chance but got injured.

02 Feb 2019 10:33:37
Yes I would Ed. Or used in rotation because we have so many games. I think this month we have 8 games in 24 days or something like that.
