“MOTM for me” – These Celtic fans want youngster to retain his place as he shows up expensive flop vs Motherwell

There were a lot of Celtic fans who actually welcomed the signing of Shane Duffy in the summer and he actually looked like he would be a good addition.

He was supposed to be rock solid in the air and nobody would get past him, while he would also be a weapon from set pieces so you could see why he was brought in.

There’s not really any point in starting Duffy over Welsh in the remaining league games if he’s not going to be kept on next season, so Celtic might as well give the youngster a solid run of games so they can see what they have ahead of next year.
