The majority of Celtic fans that responded to our poll want manager Brendan Rodgers to make a move for free-agent Giuseppe Rossi to solve their recent struggles in front of goal.

The Bhoys have now kept five clean sheets on the bounce after their 1-0 win over Rosenborg in the Europa League group stage. However, they have also only scored two in their last three games, with Leigh Griffiths striking late on Thursday to eventually break the deadlock at Parkhead.

Including Griffiths, Rodgers has just three strikers in his squad after Frenchman Mousa Dembele was allowed to leave for Lyon on deadline day in a ¬£19.7m deal. The 22-year-old’s goals and impact on the team are proving difficult to replace though, after he netted 51 times in all competitions during his two year stay with the club.

Former loanee and fellow Frenchman Odsonne Edouard became the Bhoy’s record signing this summer and youngster¬†Michael Johnston is also available, but 78 per cent of the Celtic fans that answered our poll still wanted the club to sign ex-Manchester United man Rossi.
