Cristian Gamboa’s man of the match performance has gone down very well with Celtic fans with a whopping 88% of the 1.4k respondents to our Facebook poll preferring him at Right Back over Mikael Lustig.
Mika is a fan favourite for his antics and love of the club but has not been the same player in the last few seasons looking noticeably off the pace, particularly in Europe.
Gamboa could be set for an extended run in the team, Right Back has been an area of concern along with Centre Half ever since Rodgers arrived.
Yesterday speaking to the Club’s website Gamboa stated repeatedly that he is happy and wants to stay, should his performances improve, he will likely earn himself a new contract.
