Celtic foreign problem

Click to follow
Celtic are preparing to welcome another foreign arrival to Parkhead as their general manager, Jock Brown, attempts to patch up problems with two of his Continental players.

Italian striker Paolo Di Canio says he wants to leave the club next week only 24 hours after the new coach, Wim Jansen, declared he was impressed with the former Milan player's attitude.

Brown, the man charged with keeping Celtic's foreign imports happy, may now fly to Portugal to meet up with striker Jorge Cadete, whose absence through illness is causing concern.

He also hopes to sign the Swedish striker Henrik Larsson from Feyenoord today, despite a delay in a pounds 2.5m deal.
