Celtic are in need of a new right-back.

With Mikael Lustig out of form, and Anthony Raltson injured, it is urgent that a new man comes in.

Brendan Rodgers will be well aware of this as the transfer window reaches its climax.

One player that should be under consideration for the Hoops is Kilmarnock right-back Stephen O’Donnell.

The former Luton man has been a stand-out for the Rugby Park side, most recently starring in the 2-1 win over Rangers.

He has been the height of consistency for the team that currently sit second in the Scottish Premiership table.

It’s highly likely that O’Donnell would be a much cheaper option than other players linked with the Hoops.

 

That doesn’t mean that he still couldn’t do a job for the Hoops though.

Celtic have had success with bargains from Scotland in recent years – Stuart Armstrong and Ryan Christie, for example.

It would also weaken a title rival, which Kilmarnock most certainly are, sitting only a point behind Celtic in the league table.

With time of the essence, Celtic should make their move for O’Donnell.

There is no doubt that he could do a job in the remaining months of the season as the Bhoys aim to clinch the league title.
