The Celtic crisis continued on Sunday as Ronny Deila’s player’s could only manage a 6-0 win over Dundee. Failure to take the scoreline into double figures must be a concern for all concerned at Celtic?
Emilio Izaguirre, fresh from his red card on Thursday in Amsterdam, scored two goals against Paul Hartley’s side. After failing to convert a penalty to secure his hat-trick in Sunday’s match, he is sure to be transfer listed asap.
Nadir Çiftçi scored his first goal for the club after coming on as a sub. The pressure must surely be on him now after only managing to score one league goal in two league appearances.
James Forrest skelped the upright after a route one run on the Dundee goal. He can expect to be left out of the next match after that disappointment.
Scott Brown looked very disappointed after his goal as well. His demonstration to the Celtic Park crowd is surely a sign that he is unhappy with the way things are going at the club.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Leigh Griffiths is demonstratimg just how bad things are. 7 goals in 8 league appearances is well short of what is required to successful and he is mistaken if he thinks 3 goals in 5 European appearances will help him.
Tom Rogić has not helped his career or Celtic this season either. After a long spell on the sidelines and on loan back in Australia, 3 goals in 6 appearances in the league, this is a sure sign of what under-performing in a Hoops jersey is like.
There is some good news though. Ronny Deila turns 40 today which is great because that makes him marginally older than me.
I don’t know where Celtic go from here but the signs are not good. If only we could change our attitude and get some good results.
Maybe Carlton Cole will help Celtic deal with all the negative press they get within Scotland. Handling the club’s Twitter enquiries could be right up is street.
