Some Celtic fans have made their opinions known about Daniel Arzani possibly featuring in their upcoming Scottish Cup game against Partick Thistle.

Celtic fans: Should Arzani feature v Partick Thistle?

He deserves to play

Doubt if he is good enough

With the Scottish Cup kicking off soon, Celtic face Partick Thistle in the fourth round of the competition. A Hoops-related page called Celtic1967.com sent out a post about Arzani possibly being involved in the game and that got the fans talking after he failed to be involved with the reserves.

Arzani had joined Celtic from Manchester City in the summer of 2018 on a two-year-long loan deal, days after he had joined the Citizens from City’s feeder club in Australia – Melbourne City FC.

Since joining the Parkhead-based side, Arzani has made just a single first-team appearance for the Hoops. It came in the Premiership last season, when the Australian winger played 23 minutes of a 5-0 win over Dundee United, before succumbing to an ACL injury in November 2018.

Before arriving in Scotland, Arzani had made 24 appearances in all competitions for Melbourne. He had a tally of two goals and three assists during that period.

The 21-year-old has already made six appearances for the Australian national team, also playing three games for them in the FIFA World Cup of 2018.

What do we think?

Australian outlet The World Game has already reported that Arzani is set to make a comeback for the Hoops against Partick Thistle. Indeed, he certainly needs that boost and it won’t be too huge a risk since it is a cup game only. Even if he doesn’t start, Arzani can come off the bench and get some crucial game time.
