Could Celtic regret loaning out midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu?

Celtic had a busy end to the January transfer window on Deadline Day, which included loaning out midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu (confirmed) to Kilmarnock for the rest of the season.

The 32-year-old had made just three senior appearances this season for the Bhoys and was completely on the fringes of the squad at Parkhead.

It did make sense for him to depart during January, but will it come back to bite Celtic?

 

Brendan Rodgers’ team are currently top of the Scottish Premiership table in their defence of the title, but there is certainly a race on this year.

They currently have a six-point gap over both second-placed Rangers and third-placed Kilmarnock, but both are definitely still in the title picture.

Mulumbu enjoyed a brilliant season at Kilmarnock last season before his summer move to Celtic and was a key player for Steve Clarke’s team.

The all-action central midfielder should be able to slot right back into the Kilmarnock team and improve them, which is a huge boost to one of Celtic’s title rivals.

He may not have featured much for Celtic in the second half of the season, but directly strengthening Kilmarnock could cause a problem for Rodgers’ team in the long run and he certainly will have a point to prove as a player.
