Three Players Who Celtic Must Sell In The Summer
Celtic have had the domestic league sown up for a while and their destruction of Rangers this weekend to romp into the Scottish Cup final means that the Hoops have the chance of adding more silverware to Brendan Rodgers’ already bulging trophy cabinet.
There may come a time when Rodgers outgrows the green side of Glasgow but for now, he remains committed to winning trophies at Celtic Park. Most importantly, he is always looking to improve his squad so that he can compete on as many fronts as possible.
This summer will be no different as Rodgers looks for the formula to crack Europe which he has yet to find. Competing on the European stage means beating tougher opponents and signing players that will improve the Celtic squad.
For that to happen, Rodgers will have to let some players go, and these are the players who Celtic must sell in the summer.
Many Celtic fans may have forgotten that Gamboa actually plays for the Hoops but he has made two less-than-memorable appearances against Dundee United and St Johnstone. The right-back signed from West Bromwich Albion has been far from successful since his move in 2016 north of the border.
In August of that year, he signed a three-year deal to make the move to Celtic and so Rodgers will be mindful that he only has a year left on his contract. If he is to recoup any kind of fee for the Costa Rican international the obvious time to do it would be this summer.
The Scottish international has found it hard to break into the Celtic team this season and in key games, he has found himself on the bench. He has only managed 90 minutes all season and though the former Hibs player is a Celtic fan and is a big fan favourite in Glasgow, it may be time for Brendan Rodgers to consider his options.
Celtic fans will fondly recall the 2015-16 season where Griffiths scored a massive 40 goals in 51 games but it is time for this Celtic legend to move on as he finds himself further down the pecking order.
Getting a new left-back is a huge priority for Manchester United this summer as they look weak in that department. Tierney might be the answer. For Rodgers, the aim must be to push the price as high as he can so that he can reinvest the same in his own playing squad.
