It’s quite clear that these 2 Celtic players need to leave in January after miserable season start

It’s fair to say that Celtic haven’t got off to the best start this season. Having failed to qualify for the Champions League, losing out to AEK Athens, and currently sitting in 3rd place with an uncharacteristic amount of dropped points already, questions are being asked of the members of the team who aren’t pulling their weight.

There’s no doubt in our mind that the Hoops will eventually mount another successful title challenge, and they remain the bookies favourite to do so; nevertheless, their drop in form requires further investigation, to figure out where things have gone wrong.

With this in mind, here are two players who should probably move on come January after a poor start to the season…

Scott Sinclair

After his successful first year (16/17) in Scotland in which he scored 25 goals and assisted 13 more in 50 games for Celtic, conversations on the English winger have quietened in recent times.

Indeed, Sinclair is still turning out for the first team, but there doesn’t appear to be that same sort of excitement and dynamism about his game.

Rumours were released by The Daily Record earlier this year that Premier League duo Brighton and Bournemouth had their eyes on the player, and with Callum McGregor occupying a starting place ahead of Mr. Sinclair,  it’s probably time for Scott Sinclair to weigh up his options in 2019.

Mikael Lustig

At the start of the season Mikael Lustig was one of the players Celtic could turn to as one of the most experienced players in the squad. Since then, however, things seemed have to turn sour for Lustig who has failed to perform at the level that is required of him.

Playing at 31-years-of-age time isn’t exactly in favour of the defender either. Mistakes and inconsistency have crept into his game, and with Kieran Tierney operating as his opposite on the left-hand side of the pitch, missing aspects of his game – like speed and attacking ability – are really emphasised.
