Bayo netted again in France last night, taking the Ivory Coast star’s goal output to six for 2021 and posing the query, does he have a place at Celtic?
The player, on a season long loan with Toulouse, would be hoping to improve his visibility to potential suitors and raise his chances of making a comeback to Celtic.
Injuries slowed his success in Glasgow, however he returned to health in time to sign with the Ligue 2 team.
On his debut, the first goals helped him restore some confidence.
He has expanded on his form from those days, and is regaining popularity in France.
This run of form will regain his confidence, which has been hindered by his lack of playing time and fitness in recent seasons.
However, there might very well be a new boss in charge come next season who might wish to move to Celtic or remain in France to resume his playing career.
A red card in the Europa League not only ended his development, but also sidelined him for over a month in the winter break.
Since spending over two years at Celtic since entering the club, the player has made only 16 games.
In the 370 minutes of play, he has scored twice (4 times if we count those that were granted as own goals, but are disputable).
During times with Celtic, Odsonne Edouard, Albian Ajeti, Patryk Klimala and Leigh Griffiths haven’t been able to properly perform the functions of a “target man.”
Ivan Toney, who was strongly linked with a transfer to Celtic in the summer, has been a sensation at Brentford hitting goals undisputed but strangely, he has proven to be a hazard in the skies – something that the team have lost against persistent competition.
