Vakoun Issouf Bayo is confident that he can make the grade at Celtic. The January signing from Dunajská Streda has made only one appearance for the Bhoys so far as the club has been in turmoil since the departure of Brenddan Rodgers.

However, whilst the player has admitted that the change in coach hasn’t been easy to deal with, he is more than capable of becoming a key man for the Hoops and impressing interim manager Neil Lennon.

Today, there is a new boss who runs the bench. It was not easy. But as a professional, I give the best of me to convince him” he told Ivorian website SportMania.

If I’m at Celtic, it’s good because I have a talent. It’s up to me to fight to win my place.”


It is unlikely that Celtic will see the best of Bayo until next season. It is a good sign that he has such confidence in his abilities though.


Club have faith in player


The fact that the player has signed a four-year deal with the Hoops also means that the club must have hopes that the player can develop a key man for the Hoops in years to come.

There is a good chance that the player will get more game time after the league title is clinched. That could give him some confidence ahead of next season. However, the player has plenty of confidence in himself and that can only be a good thing.
