“Great news. Although always will be concern the two centre-halves in/coming in kids of 19 and 21 (Especially in that position) Argument will always be now that you don’t always need a centre-half that can head the ball after Duffy, but I would like that as well.”

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

The 19-year-old has already played a fair bit for the Hajduk Split senior side, also playing in Europe for the club. With Kristoffer Ajer being the subject of a bid from Norwich City, the Bhoys would need a potential replacement if the Norwegian departs.

Vuskovic is still pretty young and already boasts some experience, so the idea of him replacing Ajer might be a good one.
