Former Celtic fullback Mark Wilson has claimed that any manager coming to the club will already know what is needed in terms of recruitment come the summer with the Hoops defensive problems this season.

As quoted by Scotzine, Wilson says that whoever the new manager might be will have done their homework and know that defensive reinforcements will be needed going into the next campaign after so many problems at the back this season.

“Any manager who is looking at this Celtic side and has done their homework throughout the season, not just games against Rangers, can clearly see the weaknesses.

“Steven Gerrard said after the match he played on that weakness of the backline and goalkeeper.

“That is the priority for any manager coming in – a goalkeeper and two full-backs and a centre-half. If they can keep Kris Ajer it’s a good start, but it’s a tall order.”

If you were to ask Celtic fans the main problem with the side this season the vast majority would likely say the backline.

Whether that be in goals, central defence or the fullback areas it has been a clear problem for the club this season.

It is clear as day that these will be the key positions to replace next season not only because of how poor they have been but because of the amount leaving as well leaving us short.

Fingers crossed the hunt is already underway for replacements because they are badly needed.
