Time running out for £1million signing to stake claim at Celtic after postponement - view
Celtic’s January signing Marvin Compper hasn’t had much luck so far in his career in Glasgow.
The centre-back, who was signed for £1million from Leipzig, suffered a knee injury during the Bhoys’ winter break training in Dubai.
After being out for almost two months, he was finally set to make his first-team debut after being named in the Hoops squad for the game against Dundee on Wednesday night, but that game has been postponed due to the current awful weather in Glasgow.
The 32-year-old will now be hoping to make his first appearance for the Bhoys in their upcoming Scottish Cup tie against Morton on Saturday, weather permitting.
Looking at the bigger picture, it seems unlikely that Compper will feature in the Old Firm derby at Ibrox on March 11th.
He just hasn’t the match time to justify selecting the player for such a big match. The lack of game time for Compper will disappoint Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers, who will have been eager to see his one of his January signings in action.
The best the player can hope for this season is to try and get some game time and establish himself as a candidate for selection in the first-time by the time the Champions League qualification process begins in July.
