Celtic really must consider offloading Moritz Bauer next summer after Lee O’Connor’s international debut on Thursday.
Right-back had been one of Celtic’s weakest positions for some time.
Under Brendan Rodgers, the Hoops only really had Mikael Lustig as a reliable option for that role. Rodgers tried to change that and bring in Jeremy Toljan on loan from Borussia Dortmund in January, but even he didn’t add to the depth in that position, much like Cristian Gamboa and Anthony Ralston hadn’t.
It means that Celtic had a big decision to make when Lustig was released this past summer, even though Neil Lennon, who originally brought him to Glasgow, was desperate to keep him at the club.
But it’s fair to say that Lennon now has several quality right-back options.
