The has recently reported that Celtic have lost Nayler to German giants RB Leipzig and he had left the side weeks before Ange Postecoglou had come in. Nayler was appointed by Brendan back in 2016 and he has previously worked at Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid.

He will now join Jesse Marsch at Leipzig – who was thought to be a target for the Hoops before they hired Postecoglou.

The update regarding Nayler was relayed on Twitter by Everything Celtic. Many Bhoys fans made their views clear about this.

“Bleeding talent/experience all over the shop these days. Losing youth players to more modern and switched on clubs, and even losing folk like this now to other clubs. All infrastructure and talent that eventually needs replaced. Modernisation can’t come quick enough @dom_mckay1.

“Seems odd being headhunted by Leipzig given how our ’s been run since Rodgers left and the apparent disregard for sports science and all things modern, don’t even know how they could identify him from all the mess.”

“Came in under Rodgers, lot of impetus put on sports science these days so need to be replaced properly.”

This isn’t the first occasion in recent times that Celtic are losing someone to a German club. Youngster Liam Morrison departed Parkhead for Bayern Munich last year and Barry Hepburn also headed to the Bundesliga giants from the Bhoys.

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

Considering that Nayler is someone who had worked at some top clubs before he came to Celtic, this might be a big loss for them. But it may also be an indication that Ange Postecoglou might be looking to bring in his own people at the club soon.
