Revealed: 68% of Celtic fans call on Brendan Rodgers to strengthen defence in January

With the January transfer window fast approaching, managers will already be assessing their current squads and laying plans to put into action during the market. 

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers will already be considering what work needs to be done in January.

We asked Celtic fans which area of the squad they thought to be in most desperate need of reinforcements and 68% stated that the defensive contingent ought to be addressed as a priority.

Despite the summer arrivals of Filip Benkovic and Emilio Izaguirre, Hoops fans clearly believe that the back line still needs work. See the full results below.
