Vakoun Bayo’s impressive scoring run continued last night with a double in the 2-2 draw at home to Pau.
The on loan striker’s goal against Caen at the weekend earned him a starting place in the side which looks like heading for a play-off spot to earn promotion back to Ligue 1.
In two starts and two substitute appearances this month Bayo has scored four goals to take his tally for the season to 10 from 16 starts and 14 appearances from the bench.
Both goals are well worth watching and could be replicated in the SPFL. The first he chases down a goalkeeper, wins the challenge and shows the composure to score, the second is a powerful header from a free-kick.
Obviously the French Second Division isn’t the highest standard but in Celtic’s current situation the next manager may want to take a close look at the 24-year-old.
Whatever the merits Bayo has had a better season that Leigh Griffiths and Albian Ajeti, as a third-choice striker he might be of value next season even though his current contract runs out in June 2022.
