Bojan Miovski remains viable striker option as Adam Idah stalemate emerges at Norwich

We can’t hang around waiting all summer for an Adam Idah decision. We need a striker and Bojan Miovski could still be our man...

Adam Idah wrote himself into Celtic folklore in his short spell at the club after scoring vital goals that helped us clinch the title, as well as scoring the goal that won the Scottish Cup.

It’s only natural that the majority of supporters want him signed up permanently, as he’s shown that he has great potential to become a superb player for the club.

Brendan Rodgers is also keen to snap him up, but with Johannes Hoff Thorup taking over the reins at Norwich City, he wants to run the rule over his squad including Adam before any decision is made on the Republic of Ireland internationals future.

Naturally that will take a bit of time, more than a few weeks, and unfortunately we can’t stand still waiting to see what the outcome will be.

It’s imperative we have another striker on board as we head into a gruelling pre-season which includes a trip to the United States.

So in my opinion we should now consider make a move for Aberdeen’s Bojan Miovski. The North Macedonian is a superb striker and plays in a similar style as Adam. He’s big, he’s strong, he can hold the ball up, and knows his way to goal.

Miovski has the potential to be a superb player for Celtic. He has all the makings of a Celtic striker. He knows our football, and he’s proven on the European stage.

We may need to stump up something in the region of £5 to 6 million to land the Dons man, but it would prove to be a bargain in the long run. He unsurprisingly has many suiters, he’s a top player and one we should be looking to bring to Celtic.

And Celtic stepping up interest in Miovski may just force Norwich City’s hand.

    Get Miovski in and wait to see what happens regarding Idah.We can afford both especially if good money comes in from an O’Riley sale.

  2. You are quite correct … it never ceases to amaze me how we scoff at paying xxx to a Scottish club , ( Hibs , McGinn , the necrophiliacs are even worse ) … knowing full well any resale will reap enormous rewards … it would also make the Scottish game more competitive giving the like of Aberdeen etc , more money to bring in better players .

  3. Easy to mention McGinn as the one good example of letting a good player get away.

    Failure to mention our purchases of Killen, Riordan, Turnbull, McKay Stevens, Watt, Scott Allan, Ben Siegrist etc; for balance makes Miovski more of a no-brainer than he really is.

    Of course, Leigh Griffiths, Scott McDonald and to a lesser extent, Armstrong, Christie and Barry Robson can be added as good examples but nationality is no guarantee of success.

    There have been plenty of players who had seasons like Shankland & Miovski before. Louis Moult, Michael Higdon, Stevie May, Adam Rooney, Regan Charles-Cook, & Liam Boyce – who either did not repeat that season or got a big move to England to fail there.

    Few clubs down south are going to meet Aberdeen’s asking price- I don’t think we should pay it either. There are technically better players out there- Miovski is a £2 to 3m player for me.

    • ‘We can’t wait around all summer’ – it’s June 4th.

      Calm down. Norwich have a new manager. It’ll take a little of time for this resolve but Idah wants to sign permanently and Rodgers wants him too.

      Idah scored more goals than Miovski in the past half a season, in a lot less minutes.

  4. Could it be in the reckoning that Rodgers might be even thinking about signing both miovski and idah?
    Could sell kyogo, and Oh which would potentially pay for the 2 of them, with a profit to be made also?
    Miovski along with idah, seem more like Rodgers players in leading the line imo?
    Service for kyogo has been an issue all of last season, especially with how our wide players are operating now.
    Maeda could even do a similar job as kyogo, if required in certain matches also through the centre?
    We weren’t a free scoring team in the earlier part of last season, and think Rodgers will be looking to improve our options in the attacking areas of the team, with more available options to him and how he will set the team up next season and how the subs can vary the options available to him imo?
    Still remain unconvinced that Rodgers will get what Ange could from kyogo, which is a great shame as a huge fan of kyogo and what he has done and brings to our club?
