While the 30-year-old’s wage demands could be a stumbling block, a loan deal in January could be a possibility.

Rodgers has already earmarked a striker as a priority in the January transfer window - could Bony be on the way?

Sviatchenko to return to Celtic Park

Former Celtic defender Erik Sviatchenko is to return to Parkhead on Saturday - as a spectator.

The former Hoops centre-back, who is back with FC Midtjylland posted on Instagram an old photo of himself in the Celtic dressing room with the caption “Time really does fly and I haven’t been back since January last year. 
“Can’t wait to be back.”

Celtic shared the post on the club’s Twitter account, prompting a wave of responses suggesting the club shouldn’t have allowed the Dane to leave.

According to his Twitter profile, Sviatchenko is spending a few days back in Scotland.
