CELTIC have sparked into life over the past 24 hours as the club have a bid accepted for top summer target David Turnbull. While the club work on the deal to bring the midfielder to Celtic Park they must be aware of players who are now surplus to requirements.

One man who should be on his way out of the club this summer is a player who probably should never have been signed in the first place in the dying embers of last summer’s window.

With Scott Brown out injured and Celtic without a proper holding midfielder in his absence, Brendan Rodgers went out and signed Yousouff Mulumbu who was just off a good season with Kilmarnock at the time. The midfielder came in and made only three appearances for the club. The timing of the deal smacked of a panic buy by Lee Congerton and Brendan Rodgers and the two-year deal signed by the central midfielder was a shrewd bit of work by his agent who knew Celtic were up against it.

It would transpire Callum McGregor would be more than enough to fill the position of Scott Brown in his absence, so much so there was talk of the Celtic captain struggling to get back in the side.

Mulumbu went back to Kilmarnock on loan just five months after signing for Celtic. He has one year left on his deal but it’s time for Celtic to cut the chord and get rid of any passengers.


  1. We should move him on with our thanks. We did benefit from his performances for Kilmarnock against the Ibrox mob. This was one rare example of us using the enemy’s tactics against them. For several years we have faced people including officials with Ibrox allegiances.playing out of their skins against The Hoops even when their wearing other colours. The past season demonstrated that.

    This outsourcing including players who are on-loan is merely thinly veiled cheating. Succeeding despite this toxic network makes the results even more satisfying

  2. I don’t remember anyone complaining when we signed him. Another great player who hasn’t been given a chance but the experts want to throw on the scrapheap. Any bets on Scott Allan coming to bite us on the arse this season? Not to mention Liam Henderson who blind Betty knew was a player.

  3. I would suggest we need to hold fire and then see what the transfer window brings us before we start,for 2 years most Celtic fans have been shouting g to get rid of Lustig,now that it looks like he is away they are up in arms,doesn’t matter what Neil or Peter do some will moan,it’s a no win.
