Ronny Deila told the media yesterday that Jozo Simunovic is a big doubt for tonight’s crunch tie against Molde. This means there is a very real possibility Ronny will have to reshuffle his back 4 out of necessity and not for the first time.
With Boyata certain to start tonight that leaves him needing a centre back partner if Jozo doesn’t pass a late fitness test. The mot likely person to deputise in this scenario might not be what Celtic fans want to hear.
Efe Ambrose looks likely to be tasked with keeping Molde at bay.
The defender may get a very rough ride off some but there is no denying that he is a serial offender when it comes to mistakes.
On matchday two it was his individual errors that seen Celtic surrender a 2 goal lead to Fernabahce. Leaving many fans wondering how he still manages to get in the side. With Tyler Blackett another option some would rather take their chances with the on-loan player than with Efe.
Ronny Deila speaks of experience and by now he should know that experience will not always guarantee you a result, especially when it comes to the extreme case of Ambrose.
If Jozo doesn’t make it tonight it will be interesting to see how Efe will perform knowing one pass out of place and the whole of Celtic Park are going to be on his back.
