Celtic can’t allow someone else to sign Liverpool’s Sheyi Ojo

Celtic got their season back on track with a 3-1 win away at Patrick Thistle at the weekend.

The Hoops were knocked out of the Champions League by AEK Athens meaning they will not feature in the group stage for the first time in four years. By failing to qualify, they have missed out on a huge prize pot that could have funded their summer transfer business. Celtic fans will be glad to see their side return to winning ways against Patrick Thistle thanks to goals from Leigh Griffiths, Moussa Dembele and Tom Rogic.

Celtic will now enter the Europa League play-off round alongside rivals Rangers. Steven Gerrard has added a whole host of players to his squad this summer so retaining the Scottish Premiership title will be harder than ever. The Hoops still have until the end of August to add to their team.

One man they should sign is Liverpool winger – Sheyi Ojo. Valued at £2.25m by Transfermarkt, the winger joined Liverpool at the age of 14 and quickly progressed through their youth setup earning a reputation as one of their hottest prospects. With his route to the first team blocked by Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, Ojo was loaned to Fulham last season where he scored four and assisted two in helping the Cottagers return to the Premier League.

Following the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri, Ojo is once again set to leave the club on loan with reports suggesting that Aston Villa are interested in his services. Celtic should look to hijack their move and bring the youngster to Celtic Park.

Ojo is a fast, powerful winger who would cause nightmares for defenders in the SPFL. He is comfortable on either wing and would add another dimension to their attack. Rodgers has worked with the youngster before during his spell at Liverpool and knows exactly what he would add to the team.

If he can replicate the form he showed at Fulham, he would be an excellent signing.
