Celtic’s pursuit of Jordon Ibe is reportedly back on, and the supporters are far from pleased to be linked to the winger again.
The Bournemouth outcast had been linked with a switch to the Scottish champions earlier in the window, but Eddie Howe quickly quashed those rumours. Yet, it looks like the Bhoys’ interest is back again, with Neil Lennon hoping to bring him in on loan, according to The Daily Express.

Ibe would add to quite the collection of wide-men at Parkhead, a fact that’s not missed by the fans. With the likes of Mikey Johnston, James Forrest, Marian Shved, Scott Sinclair and Lewis Morgan already at the club, the supporters don’t feel another winger should be a priority.
What they do feel is a more pressing issue is the lack of full-backs at Celtic Park. Some are angered that the club is chasing another attacking option when they’re so desperate for defensive reinforcements.
Here’s what they had to say about the rumours on Twitter…

Priorities should be wing backs

The defence has been crying out for 2 FB`s for years yet every other signing seems to be a winger. Who`s actually in charge of recruitment. ?

Look at ibe stats. Overpriced over rated. He will be a very well paid journey man. No goal threat so no sinclair replacement imo. Just shows you what 14m gets you in EPL.
