The three players Celtic should sell this summer

Celtic Stands

We take a look at three players who Celtic should be looking to sell this summer.

Ronny Deila has made a positive start to life at Celtic, but he will be keen to ensure that the side kick on again next term.

The Bhoys may have crashed out of the Scottish Cup yesterday, but they still appear in with a chance of claiming the double and that will represent success for Deila in his first season in charge.

Celtic have improved as the season has progressed and the task for Deila will be to keep the Bhoys on the right track next season.

To do so, bringing in the right players at Parkhead will be crucial, but Celtic will need to make room for new additions by selling some members of their current squad.

In this piece we take a look at the players who Deila should look to move on this summer.

Stefan Scepovic

Scepovic only arrived at Celtic last summer, but he has shown nothing to suggest that he will come good at Parkhead. 

The rangy forward has struggled for goals and appearances in Scotland, and Celtic would be well served to cash in on him already.

Scepovic has netted just four times this campaign and Celtic should move him on, before bringing in another striker this summer.

Efe Ambrose

The Nigerian's time at Celtic appears to be coming to an end, as he doesn't look good enough to move them on to the next level.

Ambrose may be a capable defender, but he lacks the technicality to thrive in a system created by Deila. 

Ambrose is simply too error-prone to be relied upon and Celtic need to think about parting ways with the defender this summer.

Callum McGregor

McGregor was one of the main men for Celtic during the early months of the campaign, but his progress appears to have halted since.

The attacking midfielder has not been seen since February and, after the addition of Gary Mackay-Steven, his chances of breaking through seem limited.

It means that a move could be best for both parties, as McGregor is reaching an age where he needs to go out and get regular first-team action.

McGregor is almost 22 now and Celtic should consider moving him on, for the good of the player in the upcoming transfer window.
