    Agree with that. Think mulumbu was signed as decent back up, then out of nowehre Christie stakes a claim for the starting line up. Weak managers play their own signings ahead of the better player. Good call by Brendan in my eyes

    Summer signing Youssouf Mulumbu is set to leave Celtic this month, reports Craig Swan in Dubai.

    The 31-year-old has managed just three appearances and 155 minutes of action since making a shock move to Parkhead on a two-year deal.

    Mulumbu is well down the Hoops pecking order and boss Brendan Rodgers will let him go out on loan to find game-time with his chances of featuring for Celtic limited in the second half of the campaign.

    Rodgers said: “Youssouf is at the age where he needs to play, really.

    “He came in as a support player to the team, but he’s at the age really where he needs to play in the next part of the season, so he’ll probably go out on loan.”

    What a joke of a signing he’s turned out to be.

    Farce of a signing, yet again.

    Why the * did Rodgers sign him 5 months ago?

    I think with the emergence of Christie.. Brown & Ntcham don't make the best starting 11..

    Thought he would prove an excellent addition but he just wasn't given a chance. Can see why the signing was made even if it was probably a bit knee-* after the McGinn fiasco.

    He was the best midfielder to play against us last season, so don't think we can be too critical for snapping him up. Looked a shrewd piece of business at the time.

    We've just not needed him.

    Emergence of christie has pretty much ended his career here, i'd prefer we keep him over Bitton/Allan to be honest but won't be sad to see him leave

    Always was a * signing and a panic buy. He played one decent game for us ffs. The amount of people who were genuinely happy with this signing feed into Lawwell and his cronies.

    Edit: In before someone quotes me saying this was a good signing :fear:

    I still have no issue with his signing, even now.

    Some people have zero grasp on the reality of a football squad. Expecting every player signed to play 40 games a season, it doesn’t happen. Based on standard common sense.

    Ronny Deila most definitely did not die for this.

    Thanks for the memories, Youssouf.

    Always going to punted after he came out and basically told Scottish football we were the best team and we were going to beat the challengers...

    Would far rather have him in the team ahead of the likes of Brown or Ntcham just now.

    Only player who looked like he actually gave a * when Killie tried kicking us off the park.

    100%.

    He was signed on a free as a squad player. How's that a "farce" or a "failure".

    Fair enough but that’s crazy to me. Feel like Bitton is vastly underrated by our support.
