What £6 Million Could Buy Celtic

On Friday, Glasgow's Evening Times reported that Celtic manager Neil Lennon said he still has £6 million at his disposal this January.

To the Hoops, that is a lot of money.

It’s just less than the amount they received for Stiliyan Petrov in 2005 and just more than what Lennon cost the club as a player back in 2000. It’s the same amount the club paid for Chris Sutton that same year and for John Hartson a year later.

For a large chunk of that £6 million, though, the Hoops acquired the player now known only as Rafael (please see here for details).

In short, that amount of money could buy Celtic a future legend, or it could buy them Scheidt.

On the other hand, a combined £6 million has procured Celtic an admirable collective of Victor Wanyama (£900,000), Henrik Larsson (£600,000), Shunsuke Nakamura (£2.5 million), Lubomir Moravcik (£300,000), Artur Boruc (£1.5 million) and Kris Commons (£300,000).

So the price tag isn't necessarily indicative of quality, and neither is buying from abroad. But which route should Celtic take? And which is more likely?

Here, we take a look at the ways Lennon could spend his £6 million and give them marks out of 10 for probability.
