If you had to use a word to define Jonjoe Kenny’s Celtic career, there would be only one conclusion; average.
The right-back has been particularly disappointing since heading to Parkhead on loan in January, and he flatters himself regularly to mislead about the Hoops.
Kenny was constantly disappointed, and his defensive performances were no gloomier.
In three consecutive games for the old company, the defender has disappointed John F. Kennedy and it is confusing to understand why the interim manager continues to trust him.
In the match at the end of March, Kenny’s unfailing return led to a corner from which Alfredo Morelos scored, and then it was even worse in the defeat of the Scottish Cup by Rangers a few weeks ago.
Does Celtic have to sign Kenny permanently?
Yes, insert it!
As Celtic lost 2-0, Everton’s loan was twice to blame. He couldn’t get close enough to Stephen Davis for the opener, and after failing to follow Ryan Kent’s run for a second, he deflected the ball into his own net.
Unfortunately, he was also very disappointed on Sunday lunch.
Kenny was caught on defense several times and failed to provide much support to returning James Forest. He would find the wing on the right, but then left it completely isolated, refusing to move forward and offer support.
He lost possession of football 21 times as he was given a terrible afternoon by Morelos and Ryan Kent.
The defender was dribbled three times and was forced to commit two fouls during a difficult afternoon. It may have been Callum McGregor who disappointed Celtic by being sent off in the first half, but Kenny didn’t do a favor either.
He completed only 72% of his passes and, after failing to take a dribble, has now registered only one successful takeover since mid-February.
It is estimated that a fee of £ 10 million may be needed to reward the 24-year-old away from Everton permanently. However, if Celtic pay this amount, serious questions will have to be asked to the people behind the scenes.
Kenny is a disappointment of a few weeks; the manager can also look for other options in his position.
