Hibernian 2, Celtic 1: Lee Congerton must start earning his wage because this Celtic squad needs some help
he man in charge of discovering hidden gems for Celtic needs to start earning his money because Brendan Rodgers’s squad needs help. If he can’t do that then a second question would be asked.
Why is he at the club?
Because right now there is a chance, 3mbet when there should not be even the remotest, chance that the biggest, richest and best team in Scotland – most people think - won’t win the league if two, probably three, first-team players are not signed in the next transfer window.Personally, I still think Celtic will make it eight in a row. And most likely by a fair margin for reasons so obvious it’s not worth noting them.They could even win the Scottish Cup and a third treble. You wouldn’t bet the family fortune on that not happening, let’s put it that way. Plus, today the supporters will start to plan their next away trip in Europe when the last 32 of the Europa League draw takes place.
It’s not doom and gloom, far from it, but Celtic are nowhere close to where they should be.The reason so many players looked tired, and understandably so given the hectic schedule, 3mbet is that the squad may be large in terms of numbers but it’s lacking in depth. There are first-team players not good enough to play for Celtic. That we are even talking about the possibility of someone else winning the title in this era of utter Celtic domination is a shocking state of affairs for everyone at Celtic Park. Congerton better come up something. Sunderland fans couldn’t believe a man they claim was mainly responsible for filling the squad with hugely expensive flops, which took their club from the Premier League to League One in successive seasons, was given such a big job.
Hibernian were brilliant here. That has to be said. They thoroughly deserved to win. Craig Gordon was faultless, James Forrest showed up as he always does, while Lewis Morgan at least came close to a goal when he got on at 2-0. Hibs keeper Ofir Marciano did not have to make a save worthy of the name. 3mbet I do not agree that Scott Brown’s legs are gone. But he and Olivier Ntcham can’t play in the same team. It worked for a while but these two are not compatible.But Brown should have been sent off for a shocking tackle on Vykintas Slivka.
