Only way is up as Mulumbu’s Celtic career can’t get any worse

Only way is up as Mulumbu’s Celtic career can’t get any worse

This summer was momentous for Celtic. After two dominant seasons domestically, the club fell short of securing a place in the Champions League this season. 

As a result of this, manager Brendan Rodgers demanded that the club spend more money to allow the Scottish giants to compete in Europe. The board were fairly reluctant to react, and when they made the deadline day signing of Youssouf Mulumbu, it was probably not what the fans were hoping for.

Then again, sometimes these obscure signings turn out to be a stroke of genius from the club. That has not turned out to be the case so far.

The Congo international has only played two games so far this season, one in the Scottish Premiership and one in the Europa League, but did not do enough to warrant another call up in either competition.

The midfielder spent last season at Kilmarnock, helping the side finish fifth in the Scottish Premiership. This fine season earned him a move to Celtic Park, but Rodgers has been reluctant to call upon him so far.

At the age of 31, if he is not part of Rodgers’ plans now, it is very unlikely that he will be at any point in the future. With that in mind, the former West Brom star should think about moving away from Glasgow as soon as possible, with the January transfer window being a legitimate get-out for the player.

The longer he waits, the longer it will be from last seasons good form, and the harder it will be to replicate it.
