Paulo Bernardo was again a stand out for Celtic in the 5-0 Scottish Cup win over Buckie Thistle yesterday afternoon. Granted it wasn’t the toughest of opposition, but the Portuguese midfielder has shown in the last few games that he’s more than worth a permanent deal.

Whatever money Benfica are due in through our option to buy, Celtic should now be willing to pay it. According to Brendan Rodgers it’s well within our price range so it’s a no brainier, we should be looking to take up the option signing him permanently.

Despite a slow start, Paulo has come on to a game and is starting to make that midfield position his own. In my view he’s a class player, he’s comfortable in possession, he can put his foot in and he can grab a goal, He’s now starting to look like the complete midfield player. And a tidy finisher too, watch this again…

Players like that are hard to come by, and that’s why it makes it all the more important that the club do all they can to sign him up permanently, especially as the likes of Matt O’Riley and maybe Reo Hatate could be the subject of temptingly large bids in the summer, although the latter’s injury woes in recent times might see him staying at Celtic longer than previously expected.

Paulo is just about to turn 22 and will continue to get better, and we’ve got to make sure it’s at Celtic he continues to do so. Make it happen Celtic, it’s a deal that makes perfect sense. Yesterday Paulo told the media after the win over Buckie Thistle that he can do better in the second half of the season, that’s some prospect!
