This has been a terrible season for Celtic and they show no signs of improving.
A 1-0 loss to the Rangers was the worst possible way to start the New Year and it looks like not even a reversal in the January transfer window will save them.
Which is the word?
If there were two areas that Celtic need to focus more on this month it would be defense and flanks.
The Hoops have conceded a large number of goals in the SPFL and sent 19 in just six Europa League games. On the wing, meanwhile, they have a lack of depth with James Forrest injured for most of the season.
As a result, two attacking players have already been attacked this month. One is the young winger from Airdrie Thomas robert and the latest link to emerge concerns the man from Exeter, Joel Randall.
Where do Celtic need to get stronger?
According to AthleticBoth Swansea and Celtic are understood to have expressed an interest in signing the 21-year-old.
Others are reportedly monitoring Randall’s situation as well, so it may not be an easy search.
The next Sinclair
Signing a League Two player in England may not be the most attractive proposition for Hoops fans, but the immense potential and talent Randall possesses cannot be underestimated.
Able to play on either wing and use both feet, he is a dynamic player capable of causing carnage from a wide area.
Randall has already dialed eight goals and recorded five assists for Exeter this span, so it’s not a big surprise to see him tied with bigger pastures.
But what distinguishes it from the rest? Well, we’ll let his manager Matt Taylor speak: “He’s had talent and potential since he was young. His career stats are phenomenal, but he added an extra dimension to his game in terms of the final product, ”he said. it started.
Taylor continued: “He’s been a constant threat on that left side, he worked tirelessly for the team and contributed every step of the way this season. He has been an outstanding player. “
as well described As “energetic,” it’s clear why we compare him to former Hoops forward Scott Sinclair.
Like Randall, the winger is a threat to the opposition and can cause a nightmare for defenders. Sinclair was always a constant threat on the left and worked tirelessly.
He scored 62 goals in 167 games for the people of Glasgow and while it will be difficult for Randall to measure up, there are already incredibly positive signs.
The Greek winger is definitely someone to watch out for.
