Celtic’s form for September makes for grim reading and with Bayer Leverkusen visiting this week in the Europa League there’s a likelihood that things may get worse before they start to get better.
This poor form coincides with a horrendous injury list, with James McCarthy and Josip Juranovic the latest to join Callum McGregor, Kyogo Furuhashi, James Forrest, Giorgios Giakoumakis and Chris Julien amongst others on the treatment table, and it’s little wonder that Ange and his players have struggled during this time.
There’s a bigger picture currently at play at Celtic just now with ongoing confusion regarding our CEO position as well as other backroom fundamentals such as sports science, a head of football, and player recruitment. The latter is the biggest concern and despite a number of new arrivals in the summer window it’s now evident that we’ve fallen way short in terms of depth, and possibly in terms of quality too with some of our new recruits.
In better news captain Callum McGregor has signed an extended 5 year deal that will keep him at the club until summer 2026. He’s been a big loss to Ange recently and here’s hoping he’s back leading the way before too long.
