Celtic linked with 47-goal EPL striker as Rangers rumours are 'wide of the mark'
The rumour mill has moved into overdrive in the final days of the transfer window with talk both Celtic and Rangers could be signing Watford striker Troy Deeney.
The 33-year-old was said to be heading to boyhood club Birmingham City after over a decade in Hertfordshire as Watford agreed to let him rip up the final year of his deal.
To further muddy the waters, a video appeared online supposedly from the Instagram account of Deeney’s agent which suggested the forward was approaching Ibrox.
However, the Scottish Sun reports the video is a hoax and neither the player nor his agent are in Glasgow today.
Celtic are expected to complete the signings of Benfica winger Filipe Jota and Greek striker Georgios Giakoumakis before the end of tomorrow’s transfer deadline day.
