It is hard to believe that a team like Celtic, who have so many strikers, have struggled to score goals this season, but it has been the case.

Despite having the likes of Leigh Griffiths, Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard in the side, the Hoops have scored less goals than Rangers in the Scottish Premiership this season.

Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has to be aware that the Hoops must improve on their misfiring front-line, as doubt remain about the future of Dembele and Edouard, and one player who would be a perfect fit is lighting-quick Derby forward Matej Vydra.

The 25-year-old has been in excellent form for the Championship promotion contenders – who sit in seventh place – having scored 20 goals in 38 appearances across all competitions.

If Derby fail to get promotion, he may even consider quitting Pride Park in the summer.

The Czech Republic international has scored in fits and bursts throughout his career, having scored double figures for Watford in two seasons, but struggling to make the grade with West Brom.

He seems to have matured since then though, and his current season with the Rams is one of the best of his career.

As the standard of the Championship is roughly similar to that of the Scottish Premiership, the player should have no issues making the grade and he is a player that the Hoops should strongly consider making a move for in the summer transfer window.
