Celtic won’t accept anything less than another treble in the current campaign, but the constant pressure from Rangers will be something that Brendan Rodgers isn’t used to.
The Hoops haven’t been able to assert their authority on proceedings right the way through the current campaign, but they have stepped up when required, other than in the recent Old Firm clash.
Although, this month could have a negative affect on their treble push, which would include their pursuit of yet another Scottish Premiership title. Indeed, with the January transfer window now here, it could decide their fate.
Therefore, here is the nightmare January for Celtic…
FAIL TO SIGN A STRIKER
Rodgers has relied on the likes of Odsonne Edouard, Mikey Johnston and Leigh Griffiths in the current campaign, but the latter is currently spending time out of football due to personal reasons.
So, it’s evident that the Hoops need to bring in at least one striker at some point this month, with an injury to either Johnston or Edouard putting them in deep trouble.
Indeed, failing to secure the services of a striker could easily turn the title race in Rangers’ favour, with Edouard and Johnston not always able to guarantee goals at the pinnacle of the attack.
DEDRYCK BOYATA SIGNS PRE-CONTRACT WITH ANOTHER CLUB
Dedryck Boyata returned to Celtic with a lot of pressure on his shoulders after a successful World Cup with Belgium last summer, with his future constantly under the spotlight.
Indeed, it looks as if the central defender will be leaving Celtic in the summer, with the opportunity to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club at some point this month.
This would come as a huge blow for supporters and Rodgers, as his performances could be affected if he decides to sign an agreement with another club. Indeed, his focus and determination levels could drop, with the knowledge that he won’t be playing his football at Celtic Park after the current campaign expires.
