Sir Kenny Dalglish: Celtic were busy in the transfer window, but maybe Steven Gerrard wanted a bit more at Rangers?

I was a wee bit surprised that Rangers didn’t bring in one more player during the transfer window.

Listen, it was great that they kept the likes of Alfredo Morelos, Nathan Patterson, Joe Aribo, Borna Barisic and Ryan Kent, players who are known to have their suitors elsewhere

But striker, Cedric Itten, and central defender, Nikola Katic, left on loan.

So maybe Steven Gerrard would have liked another body in to add to his squad?

It was a lot busier across the city, where Celtic rounded off their business by adding Georgios Giakoumakis, Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers to the squad on the final day.

All three look the part, and will increase the quality in the squad.

I watched Carter-Vickers in action for Tottenham’s reserves in a game against Liverpool, and he looked an excellent professional. His attitude was spot-on.

I think the day before, he had been an unused sub for the first-team, but still travelled to Merseyside in an exemplary frame of mind.

Celtic sold Odsonne Edouard to Crystal Palace for around £15-million. That was a good cheque to get for a player who wanted to leave.

Ryan Christie, meanwhile, moved to Bournemouth for around £2m. Normally, he would have commanded a much-higher fee, but he only had five months to run on his contract.

So, again, the Parkhead club have used the market to move on players to the best of the club’s ability.

In this calendar year, Celtic sold six or seven players and they have brought in around £45m.

They also allowed Leigh Griffiths to leave, on loan to Dundee, and it will be interesting to see what kind of campaign he has at Dens Park.

I think many, many people will keep an eye on that one to see how it all unfolds.

All in all, if you look at where Celtic were six weeks ago to where they are now, they are clearly in a better place.

Ange Postecoglou has just completed his first transfer window as manager, and he must feel happy with the business done.

It was also new chief executive, Dominic McKay’s first venture into the world of transfers, and he can be satisfied with his work.

On the park, Celtic lost to Rangers in last weekend’s Old Firm game at Ibrox.

Odsonne Edouard missed a gilt-edged chance to say farewell to the club in style, six yards out and not troubling young keeper, Robbie McCrorie.

Overall, looking at the 90 minutes, Celtic may feel they were worthy of leaving Glasgow’s south side with a point.

But credit to Rangers. They went into the game without Allan McGregor, James Tavernier and Patterson.

Steven was also missing, and watched the game from home.

Gary McAllister stepped up, and produced a sterling performance from the technical area.

The win means Rangers keep their run going against Celtic, and it may well be a vital three points when the prizes are being handed out.

The league games between Celtic and Rangers are usually decisive, but we will see if that remains the case come May.

For me, it is going to be tight. There will not be 25 points between the sides after 38 games as there was last season.

Quite clearly, Celtic are better than during that campaign.

That said, they have lost two of their opening four league games, so they need to learn to be better away from home.

Elsewhere, Hibs kept Kevin Nisbet, Martin Boyle and Josh Doig, while Hearts resisted bids for John Souttar.

Aberdeen added Matty Longstaff and David Bates, and St Johnstone sold Ali McCann and Jason Kerr for almost £2m.

Things can now settle down and managers can relax a wee bit more, knowing they can’t lose any of their players for the next few months.
