Given we have no strikers for the Livvy double header, should we not be recalling Afolabi from Dundee and seeing what he can do?
He's 21 years old, and Irish U21 international so not a kid like Haper, Dembele or Okoflex.
If he's ever to be good enough for a career with us then he should at least be in squads and making first team appearances. Saturday and Wednesday could be an ideal opportunity.

In the real world yes but when the isolations lifted he'll be dumped along with the rest of them , leave him where he is to toughen up ,play okoflex up front from the start , he has the pace and skill and like all games against livi it will be agricultural

Niall's article tonight...

Celtic silent on racist abuse suffered by loan star Jonathan Afolabi...​


Not even a 'shocked and surprised' statement regarding the racial abuse from his own club. đŸ™ˆ

What a terrible way to treat a young player. To forget to tell a player we had returned to training after lovkdown and then when he does contact Lennon only then to be told that he was going to get pubted out on loan! And to not defend him after the sickening racist abuse.

I tell you, this mistreatment of our young players we brought here on the promise of developing into stars will adversely affect us for years - who would want to come to Celtic and waste away in the stand for every game and to be forgotten about and not supported during difficult times?

Look, at Ibrox as our players were getting off the bus, IN FRONT OF MANY POLIS, you could hear screams of Paedo, Beast, etc etc.
Nothing was done at the time, the polis just stood there. I wonder what their reaction would have been if they had been hearing the N or M chants? Racism is wrong, but sectarianism and bigotry is equally wrong.

and still acceptable in 2021

I emailed all the anti racisim charities when the statue protectors were on the go asking why they don't take an anti sectarian stance like they do with show racisim the red card

:unsure: still waiting for a reply
