Loads of Celtic fans have been giving their verdict on the capture of Youssouf Mulumbu, and they feel it could actually be a genius little signing.
Celtic fans were split when the Mulumbu news broke out of nowhere this week, and there are certainly two ways to look at the deal.
The Hoops need a commanding centre back, so the free signing of an ageing midfielder isn’t exactly going to fix the main issues.
However, fans are feeling pretty optimistic about the move now that the dust has settled, and it’s not hard to see why.
Mulumbu played over 200 times for West Brom before making the move to Norwich and then Kilmarnock, where he dominated Celtic’s midfield last season.
He also spent five years with PSG early on his career, and his combination of footballing intelligence and tough tackling makes him a handy player to have in the squad.
It’s certainly not been a good transfer window for Celtic, but Brendan Rodgers may just have pulled a stroke of genius snapping up Mulumbu for free, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Very happy with this, could end up a great wee signing ✌🏻🍀
