Celtic fans weren’t impressed by Charlie Nicholas’ suggestion that Cesc Fabregas is needed to resolve their unbalanced side. 

Neither the former Scotland striker or Spanish midfielder seem particularly popular with hoops fans, in an ironic twist Fabregas is currently out injured with a hamstring problem, an issue that Celtic have plenty of experience of. 

At 34 it is fair to say that the best days are in the past for the Monaco midfielder. The outstanding form that he showed breaking through as a teenager at Arsenal have never quite been fulfilled at Barcelona or Chelsea although he has had success and very lucrative contacts. 

Whether Ange Postecoglou’s style of play has an opening for an ageing midfield play-maker is open to debate, the wage demands may also be something of an issue. 

Nicholas believes that Celtic’s manager requires some stardust for his side, that it is unbalanced. Accommodating a 34-year-old veteran with injury issues isn’t likely to be a transfer priority.
