Celtic FC Opinion – The Hoops must revive interest in Scott McTominay
Celtic are very close to winning the domestic treble, as they are 10 points ahead in the league and into the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup. The League Cup is already in their bag, hence, in terms of success this season, there is nothing better for them.
However, with a managerial change midway through the season where we saw Brendan Rodgers leaving for Leicester City and Neil Lennon taking charge until the end of this campaign, a squad overhaul could be on the cards in the upcoming summer transfer window.
While the back-line requires some surgery, enhancing the quality of midfield and the forward line should be on the agenda as well. Celtic were linked (h/t Daily Record) with a move for Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay in the January transfer window but they couldn’t manage to make it happen.
Here’s why the Hoops must re-ignite their interest in the youngster and sign him in the summer:
Midfield solidity would be elevated
Scott McTominay is a defensive midfielder, who can play in a double-pivot midfield and help the team in dictating the tempo of the game. In the handful of games he has played for Manchester United, the 22-year-old has shown enough promise.
The Scot is a very safe passer of the ball and reads the game well to intercept the opposition’s attack. His height allows him to win aerial duels, which is a critical aspect in both boxes during set-piece situations.
All in all, he is a solid midfield player who would add steel and tenacity to the Celtic team. The Hoops have Scott Brown, Callum McGregor, Nir Bitton and few youngsters as options for the
With captain Brown now 33 years old, it makes sense from the club’s viewpoint that they sign a quality midfielder. McTominay can be that man for the Hoops.
