We may have a crisis in January. Dedryck could move on and Benkovic has a recall clause in his contract. Let's hope no Leicester centre backs get injured.

Ralston, Compper, Ajer, Simunovic, Tierney, Hendry, Izagguire, Gamboa, Lustig,

Also Reserve Squad Defenders x9.

Defensive Midfielders:
Broony, Kouassi, Bitton, Mulumbu.

Plus we can buy a Defender. Plus we can bring in Loanees.

Crisis? What crisis?

Do you work with the Dailly Record Ken?

09 Oct 2018 08:16:27
Grey ajer the only cb In that list so we'd be the creek without a paddle.

09 Oct 2018 08:53:06
Grey, Commper? Are u serious?

09 Oct 2018 11:11:05
Hendry is a centre back and both Tierney and Bitton can play there as well. We shouldn’t dismiss Compper just because he hasn’t played. I suspect BR brought him in for cover and if so, he’s serving his purpose by being here. Next crisis please?

09 Oct 2018 13:49:14
I bet you when Compper plays he will be immense😂😂.

09 Oct 2018 13:50:02
Hendry is a what?

09 Oct 2018 19:09:26
GHB and COYBIG you pair make me laugh. If you think taking our best left back and putting him into centre back is a good idea then you’re off your rocker. Losing our 2 best defenders would be a crisis. U expect us to do well after that? We need to be realistic here.

09 Oct 2018 19:55:55
I watched Hendry against Aberdeen and he was excellent. Stevie May is a very physical opponent and will give any defence problems but Hendry coped with him very well. I don’t understand why so many Celtic fans are eager to slag off our defenders when we’ve conceded less goals than any other team in the league.

09 Oct 2018 20:23:43
First of all Ken, we haven’t lost them. You’ve created a scenario where we might lose them. Secondly, if we did we would still have a number of very good options as we have both just outlined. It probably hasn’t occurred to you but we won back to back trebles without Benkovic and that wasn’t a crisis, was it? If we sold all our players and didn’t buy any new ones, that would be a crisis. If we lost our manager and put you in charge, that would be a crisis. We can all create ‘what if’ situations and call them crises but until any of them happen, it’s just fantasy nonsense.

Henry is only young, is not long ago Boyata was a bombscare, now he is a stand out, don't be so quick to jump on Henry's back, give the guy a chance.

09 Oct 2018 23:13:29
Exactly. My post was a what if. The key word was “could”. The players we have aren’t good enough to replace what we would lose in that situation COYBIG. That’s my opinion, yours differs. Its clear we are good at the back. We’ve conceded the least goals and because of who? Boyata. He has been hard as nails and would be sorely missed in this current squad.

10 Oct 2018 22:10:19
I agree that Boyata is our best defender but Celtic have lost 4 goals this season, two when Boyata has been playing and two when he hasn’t been playing so there’s no justification for saying that he’s the reason we’ve conceded the fewest goals. Benkovic has only played one game, against St Johnstone. So whilst I wouldn’t want to lose either of them, we could lose both and it would still, by no stretch of the imagination, be a crisis.

{Ed007's Note - Benkovic played against St Mirren and Rosenborg as well and we kept clean sheets in both of those matches.}

10 Oct 2018 22:43:52
Sorry Ed, I stand corrected regarding St Mirren. I was only concentration on league games so I’m not sure how the numbers work out if you include the league cup and Europe. I still stand by my comment that even losing both of them would not constitute a crisis.

{Ed007's Note - At least one would need replaced with quality to play with Ajer imo.}

10 Oct 2018 23:17:00
Yes, I agree with that as well, but it’s the Dailly record style hysteria that I take issue with. If we lost both and didn’t replace them I still think we’d win the league and possibly one or both of the cups. We’d find it more difficult in Europe, if in fact we’re still in Europe by Jan. To be honest, I think Europe will be a real struggle anyway as it’s weighted more and more against us every year.
