The big games keep on coming for Celtic at the moment with the Hoops facing a Betfred Cup semi-final against Hibernian this weekend.
The Hoops are looking to win another treble this season but it is going to be difficult with Rangers clearly determined to try and stop us – though we have the quality to ensure they don’t.
Even so, the January window could prove more important than it has done in recent seasons, and it is evident that the Hoops are willing to look at young Premier League players to try and help them.
We’ve seen Jeremie Frimpong arrive at the club from Manchester City and play and impress, and it’s fair to say that the willingness from us to play these players should allow us to try and sign more in the future.
Indeed, Jackie McNamara has helped outline the argument we should put to future potential signings in discussing Frimpong’s recent impact.
Via Football Insider, he said:
“There’s good energy about him, he seems a real prospect. Neil’s dropped him in in certain games and that was a big game to come in, away from home at Aberdeen.
“He’ll take a lot of confidence away from that. He’ll love the opportunity he’s getting for first-team football. For kids in England, it’s very, very difficult to get – where he’s come in from, it’s hard to break into Man City at a young age. They spend £50million on their full-backs.”
