Celtic fans are going crazy over recent comments made by Rangers chair Dave King about their title victories.
King made a controversial statement when he rubbished the victories of four out of six that Celtic have won. The South African based chief claimed Celtic are two in a row and would not get the rest eight to make up to the ten they want.
Even Rangers fans’ asked that the chief keep quiet and focus on the forthcoming term. They ask that the club chief not make statements like this that could backfire on the club.
The club chief said the four titles Celtic won without Rangers in the top flight were crap. His comments are already igniting the heat for the next season as many would be keen to see if Rangers can cause an upset to the title winning Brendan Rodgers led side.
While the arguments prolong, Hoops manager Rodgers has said that he is looking at adding just a player during the Champions League qualifying period. Praises of the historic treble are still being sung, with many daring to ask for a repeat next season. With Patrick Roberts returning to his parent club Manchester City, Jonny Hayes has joined Parkhead.
Rodgers is banking on his stars to get the team through the European qualifiers before he adds any other. With Hayes in, which other player could Rodgers want? There are opportunities for reinforcement in central midfield or back at the centre or right.
In the right back role, Mikael Lustig is the first choice but he could contribute more to the team. His deputy CristianGamboa is pushing for more play time so he could exit the team. There are many options in central midfield so the extra person could be a defende, especially as Kolo Toure has not been retained yet.
