As the transfer stories keep ramping up as we head towards the January transfer window, it looks likely that Celtic have already tied up their first signing of the winter window.
With Yosuke Ideguchi reportedly having a transfer fee agreed and medical booked, it seems that Ange Postecoglou has already identified areas of the team that he sees as a priority to strengthen.
But there is area of the team that the Celtic gaffer could be, or should be looking at, this winter as journalist Mark Guidi pinpoints an area of the pitch that is not quite to the standard now that Jota has been ruled out through injury.
Speaking on Go Radio, Guidi said, “You know, his [Mikey Johnston] career at Celtic’s been stop, start there through injuries.
“Never really managed to get into a rhythm.
“I remember he played in the League Cup Final couple years ago when Fraser Forster had an outstanding game. Celtic won it.
“I think he had a great chance. I think he was through one on one and was a bit hesitant. But he did play well on Sunday against Dundee United.
“But I would imagine that Celtic would be looking in that area of the pitch for reinforcements moving forward.”
So it seems that Guidi reckons Johnston hasn’t got what it takes at the moment to really cement his place in the Celtic first team.
If the gaffer did strengthen that area of the pitch, does that spell the end of Johnston’s career at Celtic Park?
