Celtic are nearing a return to action after a couple of weeks in Dubai. Here are seven players that will need to step up in order to find success in the second half.
Celtic’s first half of the season was characterized by great play from new Bhoys, and those that were unexpected to contribute the way they had. The Hoops experienced a myriad of injuries that caused players to have to step up and make a difference.
If the Hoops wish to hold of the streaking Rangers, these seven current Celtic players will need to step up and help their club in the second half.
Christie played nearly every match in the first half, and got off to a hot start. In 33 appearances this season, the midfielder 17 goals and tacked on another 13 assists. However, most of that was near the beginning of the season, and much of it was in domestic play. Christie will be facing a ridiculous three-game ban upon returning to the second half due to an altercation with Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.
If the Hoops hope to make a run in Europe, and stave off Rangers, Christie will need to step up and find his form that he featured in the early goings of the first half of the season.
