Bruno Alves and Fabio Cardoso look to be the Centre Back partnership for Sevco when they attempt to proceed to their second ever final chasing their first ever trophy.
David Bates is crocked and will be out for up to 6 weeks, even with a rapid recovery he will be thrown in the deep end as Boyata was on the weekend, low on fitness and ring rusty.
Of course there are such fantastic names as McCrorie, once dubbed the best thing since the sliced pan and Lee Wallace may well come back to watch the best left back in Scotland play against him.
Neither of these players is any better than the two Latin Galacticos from the Caixinha regime.
A lot has been spoken of What the goalie was doing on the weekend, more to the point is what the Centre Halves were doing not intercepting a 40-yard pass against a single striker.
Alves is a has been, Cardoso is a never was and never will be.
They are both pure dreck.
Celtic are within touching distance of the impossible, 6 straight trophies, 7 straight League titles, with Sevco’s defence in tatters, they have a month to fashion a solution to defeat a rejuvenated Dembele and a player in Edouard who appears hellbent on earning a transfer to Paradise.
Sevco have had 48 players contracted to the club over the length of the season, 9 haven’t played a minute, merely picked up wages, 10 have left on loan or on full time transfers meaning they have 38 players contracted to the club of whom 4 haven’t played a game.
With no developmental team, they have helped bleed the company of its red til it went blue and now white, they have however failed to sign any quality in defence, an area the media loves to highlight at Celtic.
Next month, we will see exactly what this bloated squad of journeymen is capable of, in the meantime, Celtic have a League title to secure and defensive partnership to develop of our own, hopefully, Bain, Compper and Hendry join Ajer and KT in answering that question.
Our crisis has left us 9 clear witha game in hand, there’s will leave them trophyless…AGAIN.
