    The only one today who has been OK. Not brilliant, just OK. Ajer and Bain were a bit poor. The other 8 were utter *.

    Well, yes they did let him change it. But, he never got picked for the starting eleven. Was on the bench few times, as far as I remember. Then he got fed up with it, had a change of heart, and said he doesn't feel like playing for Bosnia. Of course, only after he snubbed Croatia, also because he couldn't get in the team . Ridiculous, really.

    I'm sure they did let him, they just didn't let him change back to Croatia.

    ALAVES want to sign Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic.

    The injury-plagued 24-year-old is under contract until 2021 and would cost around the Spanish club around £4million.


    Simunovic, saw a move to Torino fall through in 2016.

    Now Alaves hope to lure the big centre-half away from Celtic Park.


    Simunovic joined Celtic in 2015 from Dinamo Zagreb for an undisclosed fee.

    The stopper has made 29 appearances for the Hoops this season.


    During his four years with the Parkhead side he has made 109 appearances and scored four goals.

    Simunovic has featured more regularly at the tail end of the season but the Spanish side’s interest could leave the Hoops with a defensive crisis.

    I'd play Benkovic and Ajer in the final instead.

    £4m would be tempting if we actually had other CB’s to partner Ajer in the qualifiers that aren’t named Compper and Hendry.

    Love the guy but I think Benkovic is better and should play in the final with Ajer.

    Can't afford to sell him. He'll be a massive player for us next year if he stays fit.

    That was exactly my first thought when I saw that. Its time for a try and unsettle Celtic players story prior to a big game from the usual rags. Par for the course really.

    Jozo is steady enough but I would imagine we could find better if we spent the £4m we made on him.

    Sounds like we are in for a big rebuild, I wouldn't be suprised to see jozo moved on tbh.

    That being said, we need to rebuild the backline and as I say, he is steady - when he is fit to play at least

    As you say we are in for a big rebuild this summer, but you don't want to make too many changes too soon. I'd be against selling him and concentrate instead on those areas we have to replace, without adding even more when we don't need to. Maybe next season, when the new players we bring in this season have bedded in, I'd look at selling.

    Think he's bang average. Only a matter of time before his weaknesses start to show again. Depending on replacements, I wouldn't be averse to selling him.

    Issue is we don’t have replacements as of 31st May 2019 we have

    Kris Ajer
    Jozo Simunovic
    Jack Hendry
    Marvin Compper

    As our centre backs!

    I know, we can't leave ourselves short. All I'm saying is I don't rate him highly and I wouldn't miss him.

    He was great again today. His passing and technical ability is underrated.
