In the wake of Celtic’s ‘double treble’ celebrations, it is worth looking back at the squad as a whole, and judging if they had good or bad seasons.

One player who seems to have slipped through the cracks completely is Eboue Kouassi, who seemed to disappear from site following the Europa League second leg loss to Zenit.

The player, who is still only 20-years-old, dominated the first leg of the tie against the Russian side, but faded completely in the second leg, just like the rest of his team-mates.

His performance in the second leg couldn’t have impressed Brendan Rodgers, as he didn’t play another game for the Hoops all season after being replaced at half-time in Russia.

There is a danger that the Ivorian, who was signed for £3million from Krasnodar in January 2017, is on the verge of being a flop, which is why a loan spell away from the club next season could do him the world of good.

An ideal team to send him to could be Steve Clarke’s Kilmarnock, who has impressed hugely since taking over at Rugby Park.

Kouassi could fit into the side as a replacement for Youssouf Mulumbu, and playing every week would benefit the player, same it did Kristoffer Ajer, who after a loan spell at Rugby Park is now a Hoops regular.

Kouassi can still make it with the Hoops, time is on his side, but perhaps a spell away from the Bhoys is just what is required.
