Celtic’s defence could take on impressive new look if Rodgers lands his transfer target

Celtic fans here in the Tavern are continuing on their merry way, as drink upon drink has the faithful dreaming of a record-breaking season. 

The Hoops have dominated Scottish football over the past 6 years, since the demise and sanctions imposed on rivals Rangers.

So far this season, the old trends are again a reality, as the Bhoys continue to assert utter dominance domestically. Having played 12 games, they’ve managed to accumulate a whopping 30 points as they continue to cement their first place berth.

Since former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers joined back in 2016, he and his side have never looked back with the gaffer bringing pure delight to fans faces at Celtic Park. Currently enjoying a record-breaking 63 game unbeaten streak, which has spelled all kinds of attention from all over the world.

But one thing that the club has struggled to provide for fans in recent times is quality campaigns in the Champions League. In a negative position this time out, it looks as if a drop down to the Europa League will be on the card with their current 3rd place position.

As defensive frailties have been the downfall to most Celtic European night performances, it’s certainly been an area of frustration for our resident Hoops.

One possible cure to this disaster may just have been found, with links in The Daily Record claiming that Rodgers has made Reading’s central defender Liam Moore a target at the top of his list.

The former Leicester defender has played 17 games for the club so far this season, as he proves to be their most vital player. But at a Reading side who seem to be floating around mid-table, surely the draw of Champions League football would attract the defender?

After the links have been covered, here’s a look at the possible back four that Rodgers would use at his disposal…
