For the last couple of days we have been listening to death threats, refereeing blunders and who is favourite to win the Premiership title, we have seen the Peepul fork out money for an allegedly prodigal son and player who should be in the MLS, then Kolo worked his magic.
The signing of
Both have been talked into the move by Kolo Toure, himself a player who came to Celtic on a SOS as our defensive stocks were low in Brendan’s first season.
Now working as a coach within the club he looks to have found his niche, recruiting talent at low prices for the run in this season and if given the job full time for the 10 in a row and beyond.
The man charged with bringing talent to Celtic in Lee Congerton has an abysmal record, he should join Marvin Compper and Eboue Kouassi at another club, he has brought no quality to the table with Celtic still essentially using the players that Ronny Deila signed or inherited.
Celtic fans have been calling for the manager to be backed meaningfully by the board, this is a must if the club is going to secure 8 in a row after a substandard performance against them at Ibrox opened the door for Sevco to put an end to our dominance.
But there is no point giving the manager money to buy targets who he will not even select, better to give Kolo the job and see if he can uncover another exiting Right Back, with Kolo speaking French and well known and loved around the Footballing world, he has far more attributes for the job than Congerton.
If Bayo can continue his scoring form in Scotland as he did in Slovakia, then we may have just signed the player to replace Dembele, partner Edouard and take the pressure of Griffiths all in one.
They say a week is a long time in Football, without a ball being kicked we have again see the pendulum swing, I wonder who the papers will be calling favourites now?
