Tom Rogic is reportedly out injured for another 2 months, the devastating news will be softened by Callum McGregor’s ability to play in that position.
Calmac will need to step up and likely play 90 minutes in a blow to Rodgers options in midfield.
With Celtic traveling to play Sevco on March 10, it is unlikely that the proven Hunskelper will be back in time.
This beckons the question of whether Celtic should reinforce the midfield this window with Rogic, Roberts, Hayes and Armstrong all out of action.
Indeed, you could play those 4 midfielders as starters with Scott Brown in behind them and expect to win any game in Scotland, our midfield has taken a pounding.
There has been a lot of talk about John McGinn coming to Celtic, ostensibly to be the long-term replacement for Scott Brown in the defensive mid position.
However, with Celtic’s injury list growing, McGinn would be a welcome addition to the team and a player who would likely walk straight into the first team.
He is versatile and strong, fearless as his goals against us showed and an obvious talent that would only mature in worth for Celtic.
With Kouassi rumoured to moving towards a loan deal and Henderson having left yesterday, the case can be made for buying a midfielder this window.
For the first half of the season we have been ruing the fact we didn’t spend at Centre Back, with the window open, hopefully, we don’t make the same mistake of holding on to our Champions league millions.
