Griffiths, Tierney & Gamboa – Three Players Leaving Celtic This Summer

Celtic have had the Premiership their own for a while and their demolition of Rangers this weekend to head into the final stage of the Scottish Cup means that they have the chance of adding more silverware to their already filled up tropy cabinet.

The Hoops must be aware that there would come a time when the current boss Brendan Rodgers will consider plying his trade elsewhere but for now. That would not be their trending subject for now as the Irishman is keen on improving his team so that he can compete on as many fronts as possible and more particularly in Europe.

Celtic will be active in the summer transfer window as they look to challenge in Europe which they have yet to achieve. In doing so, this means they will have to beat tougher opponents and signing players that will improve the Celtic squad.

In order to achieve this height, the will have to let some player leave the club, and these are the players we’ve highlighted who Celtic must part ways with this summer.

Leigh Griffiths

Griffiths has been down the pecking order in Rodgers’ starting lineup this season and in key matches. The Scotland international has foundh himself on the bence in recent time. The striker has only managed 90 minutes all season and though the ex-Hibernian man is a Celtic fan and is a big fan favourite in Glasgow, it may be time for the club to consider his options.

Fans will recall the stellar season the 27-year-old had in the 2015-16 season where he netted 40 goals in 51 appearances across all competition for the club. However, it now appears to be time for this Celtic legend to move on as he finds himself further down the pecking order.

Kieran Tierney

Report linking Tierney out of Celtic Park is not what any fan will want to hear but the latest speculation concerning his future is that the Scotland youngster could be on his way to Manchester United this summer for a reported £10million.

Signing a new left-back in pace of Luke Shaw is a huge priority for the Red Devils this summer as they look weak in that area. Tierney looks odds-on to walk in straight to Mourinho set-up for the club. Should Tierney leave Celtic, the club’s aim to push his price-tag as high as they can so that they can reinvest this on new acquisitions.

Cristian Gamboa

Many Celtic fans may have forgotten that Gamboa actually plays for the Hoops but he has made two less-than-memorable appearances against Dundee United and St Johnstone. The right-back signed from West Bromwich Albion has been far from successful since his move in 2016 north of the border.

In August of that year, he signed a three-year deal to make the move to Celtic and so Rodgers will be mindful that he only has a year left on his contract. If he is to recoup any kind of fee for the Costa Rican international the obvious time to do it would be this summer.
