    We need far better than Griff? Moussa was an unusual signing, if we could find a player in such a situation every season it would be great but I wouldn't use it to bash Leigh. He's an excellent player in so many ways.

    Don't understand this current trajectory, we've dominated domestically for 3 seasons now. I'm not saying we don't need to improve, we should be looking to improve every season but far better than Griff is asking a bit much. It's not even our most immediate problem as our defence needs addressed first.

    Dead ball specialist, yes. Someone who can head or take a ball down and control it from the air, yes.

    I'd include penalties here too. I don't watch a ton of football outside Celtic, but i can't imagine most other clubs have failed to convert penalties at the same rate over the past few years...

    I wish Rogić tried taking them. I think he scored one free kick he actually volunteered to take.

    If we didn't have Rogić at the club though, loaning in Yi Kang-In from Valencia would be a no-brainer. He's been very accurate with set pieces. Imaginative as well.

    South Korean. Having a cracking U-20 WC. If some offensively-minded players leave Celtic, a loan for this boy would be a good move.

    That he doesn't have. Better able to withstand 90 minutes than Rogić, but certainly way shorter. Korea do have a big target man that pulls away the physical opposition players away from the wizard.

    If he’s not tall we don’t need him.

    We need samurai warrior killers taking free kicks.

    Would 100% take him on loan, cracking player!
    However I don't think we would get him!
    He is Highly Rated.

    Yeah. Ajax are listed as wanting him. They will have holes to fill and all that transfer money.
