Celtic: BBC pundit predicts Brendan Rodgers could face Ibrox sack talk within one month

Celtic: BBC pundit predicts Brendan Rodgers could face Ibrox sack talk within one month

Oh Hyeon-gyu and Yang-hjun-jun have been pictured training at Lennoxtown today ahead of Sunday’s Scottish Cup tie at St Mirren.

On Tuesday, South Korea was defeated by Jordan in the Asian Cup semi-finals,

allowing the players to return to their clubs.

Since both players traveled off on international duty,

their spots at Celtic have been jeopardized,

with winger Nicolas Kuhn providing more challenge to Yan,

and Adam Idah now battling with Oh and Kyogo Furuhashi for the striker position.

Brendan Rodgers will appreciate the return of two internationals,

but his defensive options are limited.

Greg Taylor and Cameron Carter-Vickers were both absent from Hibs’ midweek victory,

while Alistair Johnston and Stephen Welsh were injured during the match.
Brendan Rodgers is scheduled to hold a media conference at midday,

which will include an injury and availability update.

The Scottish Cup contest on Sunday will be decided in extra time and,

if required, on penalties. Speaking to Football Insider,

McAvennie praised Silva as a signing for Rangers,

saying that “Celtic should be worried” about his impact between now and the end of the season.

“Clement brought him in, and he’s been very good.

” He wasn’t Wolves’ first pick, but he’s come up here and settled in after a couple of games.

But all of a sudden, he’s playing in a system that he likes and enjoys.

“Clement has got them playing a solid system with the players they had and the new ones they’ve brought in;

Celtic should be concerned. Silva might be amazing for them.

” Silva is a player who has yet to fulfill his full potential,

despite arriving at Wolves as a teenage signing with such a high peak, and he is still only 21 years old.

Things appeared to be stagnate for him at Molineux,

but the expectation is that he will be rejuvenated as a Rangers player,

giving true attacking weaponry in the title chase.

The Portuguese has now scored one league goal in two starts,

and Clement recently stated that the striker is “getting better and better” as he adjusts to life at Ibrox.
