What a debut season it is turning out to be for Brendan Rodgers in Scottish football. He has certainly taken Celtic’s domestic dominance to a whole new level. We are just a few days away from the New Year and Rodgers side are without a single loss in domestic competitions having bagged the League Cup already. In fact, the Bhoys did not finish on the winning side just once at domestic level this season which ended in a stalemate.
Any other manager might have opted for a laid-back attitude after seeing Celtic dominating Scottish football without any kind of competition with so much ease but Rodgers still looking for ways to improve his side further speaks volumes about how good a manager he is. Yes, as per reports, Rodgers is monitoring the contract situation of Hull City star Robert Snodgrass and could make a January bid for the Scottish international.
Hull City’s immediate comeback campaign in the Premier League has hardly been a special one. If things do not improve really soon, we might see the Tigers dropping down once again. However, despite the side struggling for form, Snodgrass has been exceptional as an individual, often making the Tigers look like a one-man army. The Scottish international has scored seven goals and set up 2 for his teammates from just 18 games in all competitions this season.
Snodgrass has just six months left on his contract at the KC Stadium and it seems that there is very little chance that will extend his stay at the club. Despite all his efforts, Hull are struggling to get out of the danger zone and his wish to leave the club is hardly surprising. Celtic is his boyhood love and are flying high at the moment. The next few years could be even better for the Bhoys and it is the ideal time for the 29-year-old to fulfil his dream.
Snodgrass would be a welcome addition to Celtic without any shadow of a doubt. Possessing an immense amount of experience at both club and international level, he still has 3-4 years left at the top level and with him on board, Celtic could restore their pride lost in Europe in coming years.
The Scotsman likes to operate from the right flank and is more of an inside forward than an orthodox winger. His shooting with his preferred left foot often makes life hard for the keepers.
Since Rodgers’ arrival at Celtic, the Hoops have brought in proven players in English football like Sinclair, Dembele, Toure and bringing Snodgrass will be another masterstroke from the Northern Irishman. Even though he is not getting any younger, Snodgrass will prove to be a key player for Celtic for at least 3-4 years.
