    I don’t think that squad would lay a glove on the Huns tbh.

    Rooney and Doig for example have had a few good games in the SPFL - at this stage they haven’t done enough to merit being a Celtic squad player never mind a first team starter.

    The likes of Bitton and Rogic have become redundant. What purpose do they serve apart apart from costing the club a fortune for nothing in return?!

    Griffiths is a prime example of the type of player I don’t want anywhere near the club. Naturally he has a lot of talent but talent is nothing without dedication and that’s why he has never properly fulfilled his potential. We are 5 seasons on from his last good season.

    Ajeti appears to be like Griffiths. A good instinctive finisher but unfit, overweight and huffy.

    We need to aim much higher. I appreciate we won’t be able to spend big on every position and we will need to take some ‘chances’ but that’s why we need a better scouting team who can find us bargains.

    The thing is if it’s Howe as manager we know he likes a 4-4-2 McGregor and Turnbull aren’t the best at doing the defensive side of the game so we need someone too play with 1 of them.

    It's merely an opinion piece. I have Bitton gone by the way, but Rogic fit and with a good tactician calling the strings can still be a good squad player.

    Ajeti deserves a chance to show if he can play and Griffiths is still a great natural finisher. The other option is to let them go and buy 4 new strikers. That is cloud cuckoo land. We will be lucky to afford ONE really good striker.

    Doig is very good - definitely good enough to start in my opinion. The right back position I am not.convinced with myself. Rooney is big and strong and can be improved, but as I said in the piece, hopefully the manager has an option for right back and striker because that is areas I can't think of someone really good that would be a big step forward in class.

    More or less how I see it. If Ajer can be persuaded to stay then defo keep him and wouldn’t be too fussed if Johnston were to move on, I just can’t see him making it here. He’s had a lot of injury problems

    I hope we sign players who are fit and stay fit. Over the past few seasons the number of players getting injured is shocking. We need strong hard * in the team with a never say die attitude not heartless lazy wimps with no passion and poor attitudes which we have seen over the past season or so.
