Vakoun Bayo came off the bench to score his eighth goal of the season as Toulouse won 3-0 at home against Caen.

Toulouse have slipped to third place, five points behind Clermont who are in the second automatic promotion slot although Toulouse have a game in hand.

Almost half of Bayo’s appearances have come off the bench and while that is a decent return it doesn’t suggest that he is ready to play at a higher level in France or make the breakthrough at Celtic.

Even with Patryk Klimala sold and doubts over the three remaining strikers at Celtic is seems unlikely that Bayo will be part of next season’s plans unless the next management team have picked up something special pouring over the footage from Toulouse.

Celtic paid a reported £2m to Dunajska Streda in January 2019 but it was quickly obvious that the Ivorian was a work in progress rather than a replacement for Moussa Dembele who had been sold in the previous transfer window.

Tunisian side Esperance were recently linked with the Ivorian striker who is under contract at Celtic until May 2022.
