CELTIC LEGEND Willie Wallace seems upset by the fact Brendan Rodgers is refusing to rush young Daniel Arzani into the first team.
Wallace, who lives down under these days believes the Celtic manager is doing the midfielder a disservice and if he was on the board he’d want Rodgers out for the decision.
In quite an astonishing rant the former Celtic player blasted Rodgers for having a losing attitude in Europe and even joked he could beat Tom Rogic in a race.
Speaking about Arzani, there was no room for misinterpreting what Wallace was saying.
“He’s saying it’s going to be a while before he plays. Well, why are Celtic paying the wages and not Man City?” told SunSport.
“If I was the board at Celtic, I’d have kicked the manager’s a*** out the door.
“Why would you take Arzani for two years if he isn’t going to play in your team? The kid, for me, will finish up a better player than James Forrest.
“Arzani is quick, he takes people on, and he reminds me a bit of Jimmy Johnstone because of that.
“When I heard Rodgers say he wasn’t ready, I was baffled. Why take the boy if he thinks he’s not ready?
“If I was the lad, I’d ask to go back to City or go somewhere else to get a game.”
Arzani signed on a two-year loan deal but Rodgers has been wary of fielding the youngster, saying he has yet to play proper first team football in his career.
He wants to mould potential into a player and believes that will take time.
There have been Wallace apologists out there but his comments are deeply outrageous and disrespectful to a Celtic manager who has brought home an unprecedented double treble.
Regardless of any Celtic minded persons views on a single Celtic matter – the way he’s gone about it is pretty poor.
