Divock Origi is the striker that Celtic simply have to sign in January

Celtic will be delighted to have advanced in Europe but also hope their league form can continue after a blip in form.

The Hoops have had a patchy season so far, brilliant at times, disappointing the next. All teams from time to time face consistency problems but Celtic will be keen to solve their problems during the January transfer window.

With the opportunity to recruit some new players, Celtic would like to believe winning the Scottish Premiership is again possible under Brendan Rodgers.

Their main problems of late have been scoring goals, not usually a problem you would associate with Celtic.

Nevertheless, as a way of solving that issue, Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers should reunite with a player he signed whilst manager of Liverpool back in 2014, and that’s forward Divock Origi.

The Belgian forward, who is valued at £9 million on Transfermarkt, has failed to lock down a place at any team he has been at so far in his career, yet he could still be a brilliant option for Celtic.

Origi was completely forgotten about by Liverpool at the start of the campaign, only to have recently scored the winner in the Merseyside derby. It’s fair to say that even at the age of 23-years-old, Origi’s career in football has been a complete rollercoaster.

Celtic will be looking at his goal-scoring record in the hope that he can provide the much-needed finishes to improve their front-line.

Origi played 37 times last season when on-loan with Wolfsburg and he managed to score seven goals within that time frame.

Alongside Odsonne Edouard, the two of them could prove to be invaluable in the race for more silverware, so Origi is no doubt a signing Brendan Rodgers should think about making.
