Recent Celtic signing Vakoun Issouf Bayo has finally been unveiled at Celtic Park.

The hitman, who has scored 18 goals for Slovakian side Dunajska Streda this season, made an appearance at half-time of the win against St Mirren.

However, that might be the last time he is seen for a while.

Bayo is still to receive international clearance to play for Celtic.


Once that is sorted out, he will need time to adjust to the game in Scotland.

It is unlikely that he will dislodge Odsonne Edouard as the main striker at Celtic.

With Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah also playing well, he may have to bide his time for a start.

That might well be no bad thing though.

Brendan Rodgers should introduce the player gradually to the first team.

If Bayo manages to break into the first-team by the end of the season it will be progress.

With Burke and Weah only short-term signings, the onus is on them to make the first team now.

That is not the case with Bayo, who could be with the Bhoys for many years to come.

Getting the player raring to go for the start of the Champions League Qualifiers next season is arguably more important than playing this season.

As a result, the fans might not see the nest of Bayo until next season.
