Charly Musonda is ten times the player of Brian Laudrup and he’s only 21. What a coup for Rodgers and the board.

Brendan has wanted Charly Musonda since he got the job. We can't afford to buy him, few can without inflated debt. 18-month loan is ideal for all parties & this Bhoy will light up the SPL & help in CL. HH pic.twitter.com/gTe7v0pVNq

Charly Musonda on loan will be one of Celtic’s top signings in recent years. The boy definitely has something about him.

Musonda looks likely to be the creative fulcrum of the side, which the Hoops have been missing since Tom Rogic and Patrick Roberts have missed large periods of the season with knee and hamstring injuries respectively.
The Belgian has featured for the Chelsea first-team this season, most recently providing Victor Moses with an assist for a goal against Brighton.
He was an unused substitute for Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.
Musonda may well make his Hoops debut on Tuesday, which would be a boost to the fans following the injuries suffered by Craig Gordon and Leigh Griffiths took the shine off of the Hoops’ 1-0 win over Hibernian.
The Bhoys are looking for revenge over a Hearts side which are the only team to have defeated the Celts in the league so far this season.
