Alexandro Bernabei tipped to be Celtic’s surprise package in the new season

Will Berni surprise a few next season?…

Alexandro Bernabei hasn’t had the most spectacular starts to his Celtic career. The Argentine has found first team starts hard to come by due to the excellent form of Greg Taylor.

When he has started, it would be fair to say he hasn’t quite set the heather on fire. He hasn’t performed badly either to be fair, but if he wants to make the grade in this Celtic side he will have to up his game.

To be fair to Alexandro, he’s a young man who’s not only just arrived in a different country, with a completely different culture but he’s also had to adapt to a different style of football. That would be hard on anyone. Remember Stan Petrov?

Stan hit the ground running after a less than inspiring first year and Alexandro can do likewise. That first year will have been a great learning curve for the Argentine, let’s hope he can step up a gear and show us what he’s capable of. I think he could surprise a few folk this season.

About Author

An ordinary everyday Celtic supporters hailing and still residing in Govan in the shadows of the enemy. I’m a season ticket holder. I Witnessed my first Celtic game in 1988 and have attended when I can ever since. Growing up in the 90s I witnessed Celtic at their lowest, and now appreciate the historic success we enjoy today. I enjoy writing about this wonderful football club and hopefully will continue to do so. I’ve always been a keen writer and initially started this a hobby. My ambition is to one day become as good an author as my fellow Celtic Star colleagues.


  1. Rob O’Keeffe on

    Still feel he is more of a winger than left back.He tends to drift well out of position and allows the ball to float behind him far too often.Doesn’t look comfortable with a pacy winger running at him.Hopefully BR looks at him with a fresh pair of eyes,gives him a chance because there is definitely potential there.

    • Agree with above ,I think BR can improve this lad,as he is more hands on than Ange was on the training pitch.Maybe play him further forward.He has something,but keeps getting skinned further back,no doubt.

  2. Also with Brendan Rodgers being a more hands on manager on the training pitch than Ange was,and being a fluent Spanish speaker,he will probably when he gets the chance give Berna wee one to one sessions.Yes could be the Bhoys year,fingers crossed

  3. Can’t see it at all.
    A defender who can’t defend.
    Can see him going out on loan and a new left back brought in.
