    I'm not 100% on Jozo as I see several liabilities in his current game but I always forget he is 24-years old! I've seen good aspects of his game but there's an element of unpredictability about him that I haven't seen disappear over the last few years which is what concerns me the most. I'd love Benkovic back and it looks like Taylor is a done deal (I'd prefer Meling, though).

    But would only let Jozo go if we have a replacement lined up and Lawell doesn't mess it up.

    I think Jozo would be great back up as I'm hoping Jullien and Ajer turn out to be a brilliant pairing.

    How do we keep players who want to play all the time though, we do have enough games in a season to rest our best but when we're unbeaten domestically it puts pressure on any manager to play the best team every game.

    If Ajer can’t play Sunday I’m not sure who I’d rather play, Jozo or Bitton...

    Jozo for me. Watched their game last night and it was mainly cross balls into the danger area they relied on. Dare say it will be the same against us. Jozo better in the air.

    You have a guy just in the door showing him up playing through the pain barrier, this * has had enough chances and that’s without mentioning him not playing on plastic pitches.

    If we could still get £5-7m for him I'd punt and put it towards a permanent deal for Benkovic in January.

    Lenny saying Frimpong will go straight into senior squad might see Elhamed covering at CB if Jozo is out long term.

    I think he'll leave in January, he's pretty much third choice now with Jullien's recent performances and i honestly think Bitton is a better CB than him.

    JOZO SIMUNOVIC is set to miss Celtic’s Europa League opener with Rennes next week.

    SunSport understands the Hoops defender is set to undergo more checks on a knee problem.

    Simunovic sat out games with AIK and Rangers before the international break – and is still not ready to return.

    The 25-year-old will miss Celtic’s clash with Hamilton on Saturday and won’t travel to France for Thursday’s Group E tie.

    Simunovic’s absence is a blow for Neil Lennon, who is already without hamstring victim Nir Bitton.

    The Israeli pulled up in the 2-0 win over Rangers and is expected to be out for a couple of weeks.

    But Kristoffer Ajer hopes to be fit for Rennes after missing the Old Firm match with a groin injury.


    Lennon could also play versatile Israeli Hatem Abd Elhamed in central defence against Hamilton and the French side.

    We need to sign a CB who is available on a free even on a short term deal!
