Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted the Hoops have suffered in the absence of Moussa Dembele this season, but believes his attacking January acquisitions will fill the void left by the Frenchman.

It was a lot of money, but it was a divisive deal that left fans fairly heartbroken, especially given the shadow he left under and given the fact that the club failed to adequately replace him.

So bringing young Oliver and Timothy in will increase that in both the central and wide areas, as will young Bayo as well as he gives us a physicality with his presence and speed.

Rodgers admitted it has had a detrimental effect on our season, telling The Daily Mail: We’re a team that plays an aggressive game, an attacking game and I felt that was an area we were short in terms of our options.

We suffered a little bit when Moussa left in the summer, but I’m happy with these three.

Dembele moved to Lyon in August for a reported £19.7m, a record fee for an outgoing Celtic player.

Can Bayo, Weah and Burke provide the spark to win more trophies come the end of May?
