BRENDAN RODGERS has again reiterated he may not be able to satisfy both Scott Allan and Ryan Christie’s quest for first team football, even though he thinks they possess great talent.

In a perfect world, the Irishman would like to hold onto them and use them when he can but he knows both players are absolutely desperate to play regular first-team football and that would most likely see them move on.

“They are players who have been playing regularly elsewhere and both can come in and be part of a Celtic squad,” said Rodgers

“Ryan and Scott both have big talents. But can I give them the game time they want?

“That’s the only question mark and that’s a conversation we’ll have.”

Christie is more hopeful of making the breakthrough with the squad while Scott Allan seemed resigned to moving this summer before he started getting pre-season football.

Speaking a few months back he told the Hibs fans he would love to sign on a permanent basis after his loan deal expired. The clubs have yet to come to an agreement on that.

There is a lot of competition in that attacking midfield are and it will be hard for anyone out of form to keep a place in the side. Scott Sinclair hasn’t even got a first-team spot at the moment.
