After falling to a damaging defeat in Old Firm’s clash against Rangers last weekend, Celtic face the now-unknown prospect of not lifting the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.
Neil Lennon’s team had just started to get in shape before losing 1-0 at Ibrox, and many Hoops fans may already be thinking about next season.
But with the January transfer window open, CEO Peter Lawwell must surely be on the lookout for some reinforcements, and he could arguably save this season for the Bhoys by buying Exeter star Joel Randall.
Can Celtic rescue this season?
No, it’s over now!
Reports in recent days they have linked the 21-year-old with a signing for Celtic Park, and the left-back who has annotated Eight goals this season for the English League Two team could represent the future of the club.
Lennon already has a talented young band player in Mikey Johnston, and adding Randall to the mix would give Celtic a more youthful and vibrant look in the future.
His manager in Exeter, Matt Taylor, said: “It has exceeded our expectations. He has 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 has been a constant threat on that left side, he worked tirelessly for the team and contributed throughout this season. He has been an outstanding player. “
This campaign may already be viewed as a cancellation, as their 10-in-a-row attempts went disastrously wrong. But bringing in Randall could give Celtic something to scream about not just for the here and now, but for the future as well.
