Celtic fans would love to see former loanee Filip Benkovic back at Parkhead, after he was left to play with Leicester’s Under-23 side.
The defender spent last season on loan at Celtic Park, impressing in a spell that was blighted by an ankle injury. The centre-back played 27 times for the Celts, and plenty of supporters would like to see him add to that tally in this campaign.
The former Dinamo Zagreb man played the full 90 minutes for the Foxes’ U-23 team on Monday, but could only inspire his side to a 1-1 draw with Blackburn, and the Hoops faithful simply can’t believe that such a talented player isn’t in the senior side.

With just under two weeks left of the window, Neil Lennon’s men are likely to add a few new faces before the September 2 deadline, and with the defensive deficiencies rearing their ugly head last week against Cluj, fans are hoping Benkovic is one of those faces.
These fans would love to see him back in the Hoops, even if it does mean dealing with former manager Brendan Rodgers. It’s safe to say their ex-Boss isn’t on the best of terms with the Parkhead faithful after his exit in February.
Here’s what they had to say about a potential Benkovic reunion on Twitter…
Bring him home

Think he got injured at the EuroU21’s and only just back playing. Would love it if he came back ??
