DAVIE HAY is delighted with the manner boss Brendan Rodgers has gone about changing things at Celtic.
And that includes the gaffer making sure his players are happy in the dressing room.
Former manager and player Hay realises there were days when the Hoops wouldn’t hesitate to sell hot properties such as Kenny Dalglish, Lou Macari or Charlie Nicholas.
Even Hay moved to Chelsea for £250,000 in 1974 with the club finding the offer too much to resist.
The ex-international powerhouse said: “They don’t need to do that now.
“We all know that, in this day and age, the player dictates what happens. There is no sign of Moussa Dembele agitating.
“He came to Celtic at a time when he could have gone elsewhere. You would get a snippet of something if he was going by now.
“Maybe in another year or in time, Dembele might become so wanted that he and Celtic attract an offer so big it has to happen. But I don’t see it happening in the near future.

“Kieran Tierney? He is just loving playing for Celtic. That will not change for a few years. He can achieve anything. Anything.

“I think he will still be here. He is young enough that he has no notions of moving yet. You get indications if that’s the case.

“I also think Dembele will be here for another year.
“If you’re looking at where Celtic can improve, people are talking about strikers – and I think that’s the case.
“The problem is what quality of striker you get. If you only play with one, how do you keep everybody happy? But I think that’s something Brendan Rodgers will do.

“Much as they are strong in midfield, another type of midfielder might come in, as well.

“You would think they can’t improve much on last Sunday, but maybe a silky No.10 could improve things.

“It’s amazing a year on how much Brendan Rodgers has changed this Celtic team, with just the addition of a few players in Kolo Toure, Scott Sinclair and Dembele.”
