Makaveni opens Celtic’s mistake in Tony


Frank Macaveny said exceptionally Football FanCast that Ivan Tony was in the building and ready to sign for Celtic last summer.

After his goal-scoring feats for Posh, the striker was a sought after man, with Hoops being one of many interested in signing him.

Will Howe succeed at Celtic?

Of course!

Zero chance!

Zero chance!

But Celtic failed to meet Peterborough’s asking price, and Tony joined Brentford.

And the 25-year-old was in monstrous shape for the bees, scoring 30 goals in 45 appearances in the championship to shoot them to the top six finals and leave him on the move to win the minor Golden Thigh.

Celtic eventually signed on West Ham’s flop of Albian Adjety, who scored just six times in the Scottish Premiership and was a disappointing addition overall.

Meanwhile, the mascot, Odsonne Edouard failed to reach the peaks of previous seasons, while Leigh Griffiths was a little partial player, the net was only seven times.

And Makaveni said Football FanCast that a mistake by Celtic did not sign it:

“They took him to Celtic Park.” He was in Celtic Park, that’s a fact, and they were arguing over half a million. And now look at the boy, he’s hitting goals.

“He would do wonders for Celtic.”
