CELTIC took a massive step towards their ninth title in a row on Sunday when they came from a goal down to beat Kilmarnock 3-1 on the day while their nearest rivals slipped up yet again.
Since the winter break, Celtic have been on a domestic winning streak in both the league and cup. The defeat to the Ibrox club at the end of December firmly in the rearview mirror.
The bhoys continue to go from strength to strength and are playing some scintillating football at times. We are fantastic to watch when in full flow and it’s great to see the players not taking the foot off the gas and resting on their laurels.
With success comes different problems though. Highlighted by Celtic Legend Pat Bonner on BBC Sportsound after Sunday’s game, Celtic players are making noises.
Bonner claimed he spoke to an Everton scout who was at the game on Sunday and told listeners the scout was impressed by the likes of Edouard and McGregor.
These two stars seem to be under the biggest of spotlights. Edouard and Callum will be players in demand this summer and it will ultimately be Peter Lawwell who makes the call. A frightening concept.
Speaking to Sportsound as cited by SunSport, Packie Bonner lavished praise on Celtic:
“They are in a great position Celtic to kick on. Everything is right for them at the moment.
“Because they are in Europe and doing well and have a chance now to beat Copenhagen – I know Rangers have got the same – it attracts players also.
“People outside will be looking at them. Talking about Celtic now which is always the case when you are in that position of strength.
“It’s division. Keeping it going, spending the money on the right players. Bringing in players. There are maybe players brought in that haven’t worked. Get them back out again.
“They will probably have to sell one or two. Edouard looks as if he could be one.
“I was talking to one of the scouts from Everton here today.
“He is obviously up here and he was talking so highly about McGregor and the likes of Edouard and those kind of players.
“And they are attracting the attention of the big clubs.”
