Celtic fans were split on Youssouf Mulumbu’s arrival

Celtic may have won every domestic competition for more than three years but that doesn’t mean that every one of their signings has been a success.

They have ultimately been proved right, but it is still worth pondering whether Rodgers was unlucky, as the player did have a proven track record of success prior to his arrival at Celtic Park.
