As the post mortem now starts to calm down and the over reaction to the 3-1 defeat starts to dissipate, there is one row (if we can call it that) that is still rumbling on. And it has done since the start of the season.
The left back area of defence, namely Greg Taylor, is one are o the team that the majority of the fans see as a weakness in the squad.
With Boli Bolingoli so far out the picture, the only other option we have in that position is Irishman Liam Scales.
The 23 year old joined Celtic in the summer of 2021 and had impressed so far with his limited appearances this season.
With three goals in 18 appearances, he has shone, but does he have the ability and physical attributes to be a permanent solution to the upgrade in that position many fans want?
Veteran journalist Brian McNally certainly thinks so.
Well known as a massive Celtic fan, he took to twitter to offer his opinion on the matter, “My feeling is that with more game time Liam Scales fit the bill.”
The most pertinent point of the tweet, whether you agree with it or not, is ‘with more game time’.
We just have not seen enough of the young man to make a proper assessment of what his offering to the team is in that position, if indeed that is where he will be deployed.
My only fear is that with only thirteen games to go and the title in the balance, now is not the time to be experimenting.
