Celtic fans react to Vakoun Issouf Bayo's heading ability
Celtic’s new striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo has the desired heading ability the team has been lacking.
The Ivorian, who is joining the club on a four year deal, is coming under the watchful eye of fans.
On social media videos are circulating, showcasing the new Bhoy’s goals for FC DAC.
One particular skill is taking precedent with reacting fans on Twitter.
Celtic finally have a high ball outlet with Bayo
One major downside this season has been the lack of goals from crosses – especially corners.
Since Moussa Dembele’s summer departure, goals have dried up from aerial battles.
Also, crosses by wide players are also leaving a lot to be desired.
However, fans are noticing Bayo’s goals shared online feature a majority of headed efforts.
Repeating this feat in Glasgow will allow The Bhoys to be able to have an extra element to their game.
It will also allow the team to go more direct in times of need, especially in Europe.
No longer will fans have to despair with going with the predictable low option from the byline.
Some Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to express their happiness at Bayo’s much needed heading ability.
Bayo defo looks a penalty box striker; most goals coming from inside the box. Loves a header.

Bayo can header a ball. We now need someone to take corners that get past 1st man 😂 😂 😂

Bayo looks like he loves to score from a header judging by the footage. Sorely missing that just now.

As am I. I’m also excited about Bayo. He appears to bring something we’ve badly lacked Power, pace, and scored a hatful of goals with headers. Our problem has been away form. Too much tippy tippy stuff. We’ve been getting outfought. I see the tactics changing away fro home

Fans are happy with Bayo acquisition
It appears the fans are happy with the first permanent buy of the year.
Celtic sorely needs a forward with prowess and scoring reputation – they may have found one.
It remains to see if the 21-year-old can carry the massive weight on his shoulders.
The Ivory Coast international could make himself a name in these parts and be fondly remembered.
At this current time, we need him more than ever as a title race is on the horizon.
