Celtic Set To Send Their Sensational Striker On Loan: Good Move From Rodgers?

Celtic could part ways with their young striker Jack Aitchison in the summer and their rivals Dundee are looking to bring in the 18-year-old striker on loan. He managed to make just three appearances last term and has spent most of the time with the youth team. He made his debut in 2016 and became the youngest player ever to represent the club. He was just 16 years and 71 days old and to top that, he even managed to score with his first touch in the game as Celtic hammered Motherwell 7-0 in that encounter.

Dundee finished ninth this term and will be looking to add more firepower to the attacking department. They recently secured the signing of Nicky Clark and if the reports are to be believed they are keen on partnering Clark with Aitchison.

Celtic might have had a brilliant season but one feels that they still probably need an out and out striker in their squad who can score 15-20 goals. At the moment, the Hoops are not dependent on just one or two players to score. Scott Sinclair was their highest scorer this term as he managed 10 goals in the Scottish Premiership. There is a three-way tie for the second highest scorer as Moussa Dembele, Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard all finished their campaign with 9 goals each in the league.

It is often considered a good thing when various players are scoring 10 odd goals in a season and that is one of the reasons why Brendan Rodgers’ side has done well as they are not dependent on few players to find the back of the net.

Aitchison has found it tough to break into the current first eleven as the likes of Sinclair, Dembele and Griffiths have done well on the attacking front and have formed a good partnership and understanding among themselves. The 18-year-old has his name in the history books of Celtic but now could be the right time for him to part ways with the club.

The forward has represented Scotland at various youth level tournaments and is touted to be a Scottish international soon. It will certainly be a right move on Rodgers’ part to send him on loan where he can get regular first-team experience. The youngster himself will be itching to get some regular game time in the big leagues and Dundee can certainly provide him with those opportunities.
