Celtic urged to re-sign former player to fill defensive void next season

Big clubs will always have young players who slip through the net and go on to prove themselves somewhere else, but sometimes a player just needs to leave.

You can only develop so much by playing for the reserves and it’s not fair on anyone to just stockpile players to loan them out season after season, so it’s to be expected.

Stuart Findlay was one of those who had several loan spells and was even allowed to join Newcastle United on a free transfer, but what he really needed was a few years to establish himself at a team.

He’s done that in Kilmarnock, where he’s shown he has the makings of a complete centre back so it’s only natural that he might be linked with a move back to Celtic.

HITC have done just that, by suggesting he could be the perfect player to replace Kristoffer Ajer if he does finally move on this Summer, but he would still be a good addition even if everyone stays.

He’s got pace, can defend well and is also left footed which would bring a natural balance to the back line, so it’s easy to see why he might be linked.

He should also be commended for mastering the art of playing on plastic where the ball could ping up into the air or also not bounce at all every time it hits the deck, so playing on grass most weeks might even help him develop further.

You have to imagine that he would be fairly cheap too, although that could count against him if a big name did move on.

The fans might see him as a cheap option and demand a bigger name to slot into the defence, but he certainly makes sense as a replacement for someone like Jozo Simunovic.
