Celtic are reaching that time of year again were they have a hectic fixture schedule and compared to last year we actually have plenty of cover.
Celtic have always had a problem over that past 2 years with left backs and right backs, to think at the beginning of the summer window many Celtic fans were worried that the club weren’t going to find any replacements for Lustig and Tierney, and even then we still never had any depth.
But now we find ourselves sitting pretty with Elhamed, Frimpong and Bauer, all ready and waiting for Lennon’s call to action, sadly Elhamed looks to be out injured for a short spell and Lennon will most likely look to Bauer to replace Elhamed and play the remaining two Europa League games against Rennes and Cluj.
Also Frimpong is more than capable of handling a few matches here and there in Scotland, the same could be said for the rest of Celtic’s positions, the club actually have real depth and quality.
The only issue would be Edouard, the big Frenchman would need to handle every game until January unless Griffiths makes a return, Lennon could use a makeshift forward but I’m sure fans would rather big Eddie play the rest of November and December’s games.
