Celtic are currently tenth in the 16-team Premiership table, with 20 points after five wins, five draws and seven losses.

Phunya Sele Sele have managed just 15 goals this season, making them the second lowest goal-scorers after bottom side AmaZulu.

"Looking at the two last games we played before recess, the team created so many chances that needed to be converted and clearly, a striking force will be our main worry for now," Larson told KickOff.

"The management is working tirelessly to secure one or two prolific strikers that will come help remedy the situation."

Celtic scored three goals in their last two games - a 2-1 loss against Orlando Pirates and a 2-0 win against Black Aces - but didn't score at all in their four previous fixtures.

Larsen's side can expect a stern test when they host host Kaizer Chiefs on 11 February in their return to action after the mid-season break.

Having joined Celtic in December, Larsen has welcomed the extended break and says it gives him extra time to prepare the team.
