Kieran Devlin was speaking about Patryk Klimala’s position at Celtic during a Q&A on The Athletic following the 3-1 victory against Kilmarnock.
The match was another good one for Celtic’s strikers, as both Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths managed to get their names on the scoresheet.
However, while Klimala will likely be happy that his team earned three points which should help them on their way to being champions, it was another frustrating day for him on a personal level, as the Poland youth international was left on the bench.
Devlin was asked about the 21-year-old during the Q&A after the game, to which he replied: “Have heard people inside the club aren’t impressed with him so far but it’s also only been six, seven weeks.”
He then went on to add: “Klimala was always a strange one from the start, underlying reports were never that impressive. Seemed a bizarre move to sanction for that money.”
That this type of talk is already emerging should be seen as a deeply worrying sign for Celtic and their new striker, who only joined in January.
Since then, he has played just 15 minutes across two substitute appearances in the league, and wasn’t even on the bench for the two games prior to most recent one.
He has one start and a substitute appearance in the Scottish FA Cup, from which he has recorded one assist, but it is league selections which would show Lennon having faith in him.
The 21-year-old had scored seven goals and added a further three assists in 17 Polish Ekstraklasa matches before making the January move, but it seems as though he has done very little to show Lennon he could get those sort of numbers for Celtic.
All of this is definitely a damning indictment on his time at Celtic Park so far.
Indeed, the future doesn’t look promising so far.
