Tottenham’s Joe Hart joins Celtic
Celtic have signed Joe Hart at Tottenham Hotspur and James McCarthy at Crystal Palace as Ange Postecoglou seeks to bridge the gap between the Hoops and their biggest rivals, the Rangers.
According to BBC Sport, Hart signed a three-year deal while McCarthy signed a four-year deal.
It is possible that both players could play for Celtic in the Europa League qualification against FK Jablonec on Thursday.
It was a bad start to the season in which they were eliminated from the Champions League by the Danish team Midtjylland in the qualifying phase.

Not to mention that they lost their opener in the Scottish Premiership to Hearts on Saturday.
Amazingly, Callum McGregor played more minutes for Celtic (4,256) last season than James McCarthy in the last five seasons combined (3,789).

Last but not least, it shows the size of the task that Postecoglou has in front of it, and it is clearly something that will not be done overnight.
