As far as I am concerned, Liel Abada is not getting enough game time. I understand why Jota is one of the first names on the team sheet and I see the value Daizen Maeda brings, but Celtic seem so much more productive when Adaba is on the field, so talk of Celtic chasing another winger was unexpected.
With James Forrest also in the squad, the wide attacking positions appear fully subscribed. Jota will play, Abada will continue to develop, Maeda will contribute plenty and Forrest will largely provide cover. Why then, are we linked to Sead Haksabanovic?
The Swedish-born, Montenegrin international will undoubtedly provide value for whichever club rescues him from his contract at relegated Russian club Rubin Kazan. Without either Jota and Maeda, you would see the sense, but with both?
The only way this makes sense is if Celtic, three weeks into the season, are already coming under pressure for a prized asset. Which, itself, actually makes sense.
