Celtic fans on Twitter would do anything for Benkovic’s signature permanently

Celtic fans were treated to the rare occurrence of a Filip Benkovic goal yesterday. The 21-year-old Croatian centre-back showed what he can do at both ends of the pitch as the Bhoys ran out 3-0 winners over Dundee at Parkhead, and the Celtic fans have been screaming for their club to sign the on-loan Leicester City man permanently.

Benkovic is set to leave the club and return to his parent club at the King Power Stadium in June next year, but the fans want to keep the massive Croatian rock at Parkhead, and wouldn’t be against Brendan Rodgers throwing every penny he has at the Foxes in January to try and persuade the 2015/16 Premier League champions to let the colossal centre-half make Glasgow his permanent home,

The defender has shown this season that he’s a class above Scottish football. Virgil van Dijk was similar to the Croatian in that way, but the Dutch defender was a class above what Benkovic is. However, having the 21-year-old at the club has been a joy so far for the Bhoys, and if they could secure his services for longer then it would give them a huge boost as they aim for the elusive ten in a row.

The Hoops would do anything to sign Benkovic on a permanent deal, and will be hoping Rodgers can mastermind some sort of agreement with Leicester to sign the Croatian defender.
