Celtic will be looking to secure themselves another spot in a domestic final this weekend as we take on Hibernian in the semi-final of the Betfred Cup.
The Hoops have started this season well and are looking to earn another domestic treble this year with Rangers looking to try and stop us.
It could come down to who has the strongest squad, then, and it appears that we are going to need to dip into the transfer window to add to our attacking options.
With Leigh Griffiths in and out of the treatment room, Vakoun Bayo is also struggling for fitness, as per Lennon’s update earlier this week:
????️ NL: “Bayo may require surgery, he’s seeing a specialist so if he does need surgery we are looking at maybe six weeks. @Leighgriff09 is back training tomorrow but we’ll have to wait and see his condition.”

Plenty has been said in relation to this, then, and so let’s take a look at the reaction to the news on social media:
Need a penalty box striker for certain games as good a footballer as Eddie is the amount of times that ball comes into the box and he's about 20 yards out is frustrating thankfully we have wingers and christie scoring for fun but it would be good to have another style up top.

Be good to have Leigh back for December, Eddy needs a rest, and Bayo just not cutting it ????

I wish we were much more transparent about injuries. I don't know what's going on half the time

A worry for the Hoops, and so hopefully we can add to our side in the January window.
