The big Celtic striker struggled to make an impression yesterday.
Quite a few Celtic fans aren’t predicting a positive future for Vakoun Issouf Bayo in Glasgow.
The big Ivorian striker had a 25-minute cameo in Saturday’s 6-0 demolition of Ross County at Parkhead.
But Bayo, signed by former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers in January, didn’t do much to warrant coming on for Odsonne Edouard, who scored the Hoops’ second goal yesterday.
The 22-year-old is Neil Lennon’s only other striker right now due to Leigh Griffiths’s injury.
And it looks like Celtic fans weren’t hugely impressed by his showing yesterday. Here’s how they reacted to his performance:
High 5 or 6 Celtic superb today. Only thing 4 me Bayo is either to keen to plz or not very good.☘☘☘ pic.twitter.com/8WF0IWfrY6— Jungle Lover. Paul Wilson. (@kirkwallkid) October 19, 2019
Bayo isn’t Celtic class i’m afraid to say.— Gary Harper (@TOPJBHOY) October 19, 2019
Hard to have any complaints after that game today but it’s looking more and more that bayo might not cut it at Celtic , and that we will need another striker in January , we need griff back playing— Div McALpine (@DIVBHOY) October 19, 2019
Celtic have thee best under21 striker in Europe..then substitute him to rest by bringing on a lump of wid like Bayo . It’s like trading yir Ferrari for a punto the drop off in class is atrocious— me . (@Albagubrath71) October 19, 2019
Bayo is never a Celtic striker in his life— Jordan Tracey (@JordanTracey17) October 19, 2019
Bayo isnt the player people think or hop he is. If Eddy goes or gets injured we dont have much left. On another note, wee frimpong looks great— Kev (@KA1806) October 19, 2019
Bayo nowhere near it for me, more amido balde than french eddy— JK67 (@YerAuldDa67) October 19, 2019
In Bayo’s defence, it’s still very early days.
He barely kicked a ball during the second half of last season after falling injured shortly after joining up with Rodgers in Glasgow.
But this season, he has offered occasional glimpses into his talent, netting three goals in 285 minutes.
Celtic spent £2 million on the towering forward, according to Herald Scotland.
