WBA winger’s loan stint is coming to an end. “Oliver Burke is a no.”
That’s Chris Sutton’s advice to Celtic about the prospect of extending the West Bromwich Albion winger’s stay in Glasgow.
Burke headed north to sign for the Scottish Premiership champions in January and hit the ground running, scoring three goals in his first six matches.
But that was under Brendan Rodgers, before the 46-year-old left to become Leicester City’s manager in late February.
Under Neil Lennon, the interim boss, it hasn’t quite worked out for Burke.
He’s yet to score since Lennon took charge and Saturday’s appearance as a late substitute in the 3-0 win against Aberdeen was his first for a month.
Celtic have three matches left to play this season, including an Old Firm clash against Rangers and the Scottish Cup final, but it seems that they have already decided on Burke’s future at the club – or rather lack of one.
And former Hoops striker Sutton is in no doubt that the 22-year-old should return to The Hawthorns when his loan stint comes to an end.
“Burke is a no,” wrote Sutton in the Daily Record. “His legs work quicker than his brain.”
