Celtic’s sole focus has to be on getting over the line in the Premiership title race. They have done very well to take the lead, and are 6 points ahead of the Rangers with 4 more league games to go. Having a superior goal difference as well, it does look like two wins from here on would be enough for the Hoops. A lot more work is still left to be done though and finishing touches are required before the club can celebrate returning to the top of Scottish football.
Then, the focus can turn towards the summer transfer window, which is going to be an important one for the club. They laid the foundations for the Ange Postecoglou era in the previous one. Now, it is time to build upon it.
The main worry will be the futures of Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers. Both of them have become huge parts of the starting XI but are only on loan at the moment, from Benfica and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.
On the other hand, it looks Karamoko Dembele could be headed for the Celtic exit door. A report from The Sportsman reads:
As it stands, Dembele will exit Celtic in the summer. His next destination remains unknown, but he will not be short of suitors.
Dembele could be headed for the Celtic exit after struggling to break into the first-team
While coming through the youth ranks, Dembele was one of the most highly-rated young players in world football. But unfortunately, that has not translated to the senior level yet, as the youngster has struggled to get regular minutes in the first-team.
While it has been a long time since he made his debut for the Celtic senior team, he has only been able to get a handful of appearances for the side since then. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has made 10 appearances for the club across all competitions, scoring a solitary goal. Recently, he has mostly been featuring for the B team, after suffering a long-term injury in pre-season.
And with his current deal believed to be running out in the summer, it is very possible that he could be headed for the Parkhead exit.
