Celtic summer signing is struggling to impress in training

Celtic have brought in quite a few new faces over the course of the recently concluded summer transfer window. The club made ten permanent signings while brining in two players on loan, with both of those deals having an option to buy included in them.

Thus, it goes without saying that the squad is very different to the one which finished 25 points behind the Rangers in the Premiership table last season. Liam Shaw, Osaze Urhoghide, Liel Abada, Kyogo Furuhashi, Carl Starfelt, Joe Hart, James McCarthy, Josip Juranovic, Liam Scales, Georgios Giakoumakis, Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers have all arrived at Parkhead over the past couple of months.

Now, it is understandable that while all of these players were signed with the hope that they can make an impact on the first-team, it would be natural for a few of them to come in and take some time to adjust to their new surroundings.

As reported by The Athletic (via HITC), Urhoghide is waiting for his Celtic debut after struggling to impress in training.

Urhoghide has not made his debut for Celtic yet

When Urhoghide arrived at Parkhead earlier in the summer, there was a belief that he could end up playing a big part in Ange Postecoglou’s side this season. At the time, the likes of Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Watford were also believed to have been interested in his signature.

But a few months on and it does feel like Urhoghide will need some time to adjust to his new surroundings before making an impact in the first-team picture. While the 21-year-old had made several appearances for Sheffield Wednesday last season, he is yet to make his competitive debut for the Glasgow giants.

On the other hand, defence has remained a worry for the Hoops for a while although the arrival of Carter-Vickers from Tottenham Hotspur late on transfer deadline day could help in that regard moving forward.
