BRENDAN RODGERS has revealed Celtic’s new permanent striker Issouf Bayo will NOT be available for the Scottish Cup tie against Airdrie on Saturday with the players work permit still not issued at this point.

Speaking to Celtic’s social media the manager explained.

Bayo is one of three signings made by Rodgers in this window with Timothy Weah and Oli burke also coming in on short-term loan deals.

Both players have been training well and could play a part in the Scottish Cup game if Rodgers wants to call upon them.

Speaking about the pair, Rodgers said having them in Dubai has made a real difference.

Celtic take on Airdrie in the 5:15pm kick off with the bhoys starting their defence of the Scottish Cup which they have won the past two years.

It’s very likely we will see one if not two of the players getting some sort of run out in front of the fans this weekend.
