Celtic fans will be confident heading into their remaining fixtures in October.
The Hoops have made an inconsistent start to Brendan Rodgers’ third season at the club but are starting to rediscover their form. With Hearts losing to Rangers last weekend, the title race has been blown wide open. Celtic have four remaining fixtures in October to close the gap to the league leaders.
Following the international break, Celtic will face Hibernian before travelling to Germany to meet RB Leipzig in the Europa League. Eager to retain the Scottish League Cup, Celtic will be hoping for a positive result against Hearts to continue their streak of winning the domestic treble under Rodgers. Celtic will end the month against the bottom of the table Dundee who should pose no threat to the Bhoys.
Rodgers should also keep an eye on potential January recruits who could give his side an edge in the New Year. One man he should consider signing is Swansea outcast – Wilfried Bony. Valued at £6.3m by Transfermarkt, the Ivorian has not featured for the Swans since March after injuring his cruciate ligament. Following their relegation to the Championship, Bony is yet to be included in a matchday squad.
With Celtic losing Moussa Dembele in the summer, Bony could add another dimension to Rodgers’ attack. A strong, powerful forward with excellent finishing ability, the former Ivory Coast international would score goals for fun in the SPFL. Still only 29-years-old, there is plenty of time for Bony to rediscover the form that prompted Manchester City to spend £28m to bring him to Eastlands.
If he can put his injury troubles behind him, Celtic could greatly benefit from his arrival.
