The Celtic Way reporter Anthony Haggerty does not think Albian Ajeti will see his first-team opportunities improve despite the exit of Odsonne Edouard.
However, Bhoys manager Ange Postecoglou compensated for the loss of Edouard by sealing the £2.5million signing of VVV-Venlo striker Georgios Giakoumakis.
Is Ajeti good enough for Celtic?
Giakoumakis has headed to Glasgow having finished last season as the Eredivisie’s top scorer, with 26 goals in 30 appearances, despite VVV-Venlo suffering relegation.
During his time with the Scottish giants, Ajeti has scored just six times.
Haggerty believes the 24-year-old Switzerland international has a tough job on his hands if he wants to break into Postecoglou’s preferred side.
He told TIF: “I think he has got ability but has maybe kept it well hidden up until now.
“For £5million, which was Celtic’s outlay on him, I think they were looking for a lot more.
“The fans would say persevere with him this season but I think he’s going to be a bit-part player.”
