9 surplus Celts for Cummings and McGinn

Sharing is caring!

Neil Lennon is coming back to the Scottish Premiership, this time with Hibernian Football Club.

The former Celtic captain and manager is loathed across town and this will play right into Celtic’s hands next year, essentially for Sevco, they now have 8 derbies against Ra Fenians.

The Hibees of course cant be called Fenians, they are more like a lot of Rugby fans on the waiting list at Murrayfield killing time at the fitba.

But Barrie “6 million quid” McKay’s shoes can be called Fenian in the parallel universe in which the deluded occupy, so lets use it to our advantage.

We should help Lenny out, we have too many players at the club, many brought to Celtic and managed by the fiery Ulsterman.

Hibs will need reinforcements to make the step up as last years promoted team have found out this year.

Instead of plundering Accrington Stanley, why not do a deal whereby Jason Cummings and John McGinn are signed to Celtic on 5 year deals.

In the case of Cummings he would then be loaned back for the first season to Hibernian.

In the other direction i would offer the following:

I can’t see any of these players in the Champions League squad, they are all Premiership quality, but that’s not the level we are aiming at, we are trying to qualify for Europe and compete with the likes of Barcelona.

Cristian Gamboa is worth his price tag of around a million, he isn’t an unearthed gem and wont displace Lustig next year.

Scott Allan may not be welcome back at Hibs, that said he is in the beggars can’t be choosers position. He needs to leave Celtic to restart his career, Lenny will get the best out of him.

Eoghan O’Connell is too far back in the pecking order and at his age needs first team football, the Cork man has undoubted skill, it is just he is behind Sviatchenko, Jozo, Boyatta and Toure.

Nadir Ciftci like Scott Allan needs to leave and restart his career. He was a combative forward at Dundee United and Neil Lennon would get the best out of the big Turk.

Saidy Janko has undoubted pedigree arriving from Manchester United, his injuries however have never really allowed him to flourish and he is miles behind the others.

Liam Henderson has the most potential out of the lot to go on but is stuck behind the skipper and Biton. He hasn’t taken his chance, time to give someone else like John McGinn their shot.

Kris Commons is one of my all time favourite players, since Molde he has been on the outer or injured, he has already linked up with Hibs this season on emergency loan, hopefully we can say goodbye before he goes.

Efe Ambrose is coming to the end of his Celtic time and is fitting in well with hibs, hopefully that sorts itself out and best of luck to the big man.

Gary Mackay Stevens came from Dundee United at the same time as Armstrong, the trajectories couldn’t be more different. He is a talented player who can re find his confidence at Easter road.

If we were to do this deal for Neil Lennon and Hibernian, i would assume that this team would finish in the top 6 in the first year and challenge for second in its second year.

Neil Lennon sold McGeedy and with the funds built a team that would beat the Barca, for his stars Cummings and McGinn we could give him a squad which could lead to a Green and White first and second placing.

The unseen hand would drive the Shame insane!

Once a month they will be up against Brendan or Neil, that’s a week of raging before, 2 hours of venting bile at and 1 week of raging after the match.

Their sponsors will suffer the Billy Boys 4 times a year, will they suffer it 8 i wonder?
