From £25m Celtic hero to defensive flops - How the players who left Parkhead over the summer are faring so far this season

Celtic manager Neil Lennon oversaw a pretty major squad overhaul in the summer, as he brought in a host of quality new talents while also shipping out a number of players in order to balance the books. The transfer window was largely dominated by the Kieran Tierney transfer saga, which saw the player eventually leave Parkhead to join Arsenal.


Well, so far, so good, as the Hoops are sitting comfortably three points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership, with maximum points from their opening six games. Here's a look at the players who Celtic moved on over the summer, who either left in the pursuit of permanent deals elsewhere, or to get some valuable first team football experience under their belts.

He was never really given a go under Brendan Rodgers, making just one appearance in an 18-month stint at the club. He's now playing third tier football back in Germany, where his side currently sit in fifth place.

After being a rock at the back for Celtic in eight consecutive league title wins, the Swede took on a new challenge in Belgium. He helped his side to win their first Europa League group match of the campaign.
Another fringe player moved on, the Costa Rica international also found his way to Germany. His new team have been positively woeful this season, failing to win in seven league games. They've lost just once with Gamboa in the side, mind.
After agreeing a pre-contract deal back in January, the 27-year-old completed a permanent move to Edinburgh. He's played pretty well this season, and scored the winning goal on the first day of the season against St Mirren.
Snapped up earlier in the month, the Scotland U19 international midfielder has made two appearances so far, with the Staggies win both games he featured in.
Following a loan spell with Kilmarnock last season, the former Paris Saint-Germain man was released by Celtic. He's had no joy finding a new club thus far, despite offering his services to West Brom.
Arsenal splashed the big bucks on Tierney, shelling out 25m. He had a long wait to make his Gunners debut after being sidelined following a hernia, but started their 5-0 cup win over Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.
The Dutchman called time on his career at the end of last season, following a fine 20 years between the sticks including spells with Wolves and Swansea City.
Neil Lennon made it clear that the player still has a future at the club, and he'll be determined to prove himself with the Saints. He's played twice so far, but his side are in a rotten run of form.
Celtic were eager to tie down the Belgian to a new deal, but it wasn't meant to be. Now plying his trade in the Bundesliga, but has been injured for most of the season so far. His side are having an absolute shocker, too.
The Honduras legend left the Hoops for the second time at the end of last season, after turning down a contract extension with the club. He's now back with his boyhood club, and bagged their winning goal in a league game last week.
Sent out to gain some valuable first-team experience, the 22-year-old defender has done just that, making seven appearances so far this season. His side are, however, rock bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference.
