Celtic should ready January bid following Scott McKenna’s latest comments

It’s been a fairly stuttering start to the season for Celtic this year as coming off the back of their second successive treble, Brendan Rodgers’ side has struggled to replicate their dominance of years past and currently sit third in the table. 

After a summer in which the Scottish champions lost Moussa Dembele late on in the transfer window, while the club also had to deal with speculation over Olivier Ntcham and Dedryck Boyata’s respective futures.

Recently the Hoops were beaten by Kilmarnock in the league and defeated conclusively by Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League. Thanks to James Forrest’s four-goal performance, Celtic beat St Johnstone 6-0 last weekend but the club is still yet to regain form this season.

Although we’re only October, Rodgers must be looking to January to improve his squad and with that in mind, he should revisit a move for Aberdeen defender, Scott McKenna especially considering the defender’s latest comments.

The defender has admitted that if the right offer comes in, he will move on but is still focussed on Aberdeen.

The Breakdown

With Boyata’s contract running out next summer and the defender’s future at the club seemingly coming to an acrimonious end, it would make absolute sense for Celtic to move for McKenna.

The powerful defender played 26 times for the club in the league last year but has only managed to play four games in the league this season due to an injury. At 21, the defender has plenty of potential and would be a great addition to a Celtic side that needs some fresh blood in January.
