Revealed: 67% of Celtic fans want Rodgers to sign free-agent Jerry Mbakogu

The majority of Celtic fans that answered our recent poll said that they would support a move for free-agent Jerry Mbakogu, who was a summer target for Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds.

The Bhoys are currently in fifth place in the Scottish Premiership after their 1-0 win over Aberdeen on Saturday and Rangers’ loss to Livingston on Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have struggled for goals recently though and have only netted five goals in their last six matches in all competitions. The Northern Irishman has three strikers at his disposal, Leigh Griffiths, youngster Michael Johnston and summer signing Odsonne Edouard, but only Griffiths has been among the goals in recent weeks.

Mbakogu then could be a quick and cheap fix after theĀ 25-year-old left Italian side Carpi in the summer.

The Nigerian has played most of his football in Italy and has a career record of 63 goals in 243 club appearances. While this may not be record-breaking, Mbakogu is yet to hit his prime and 67 per cent of Celtic fans that answered our poll said they would back any move. Check out the full results below.
