With Celtic continuing to discover any type of steady shape in the Scottish Premiership and the amount of accidents they have to contend with, Brendan Rodgers sincerely has a job on his arms at the moment.

The Celtic manager has had to deal with a horrendous run of injuries this season and is now being pressured to play gamers that typically would generally now not be in rivalry for a beginning spot.

And BBC pundit, Michael Stewart reckons that is exactly what is taking place with Argentine full-back,Alexandro Bernabei.

Signed by way of Ange Postecoglou again in 2022, the 23-year-old arrived at Celtic with a sense of exhilaration due to him being the first-ever signing from Argentina.

However, it looks that Bernabei is now not fancied by Rodgers and Stewart says the solely purpose he is getting a sport is down to the harm to Greg Taylor.

Stewart stated [Scottish Football Podcast], “You appear at the side, to go back to it, Stephen Welsh has come on, Tony Ralston’s come on, younger Vata is there as well, these are guys that virtually wouldn’t have been getting a good deal sport time before.

“Bernabei at left-back and I know he came in Ange Postecoglou’s time, no marvel he got taken off. He’s now not properly enough. He’s now not desirable enough.

“And these are guys that are having more and extra gametime because the squad is stretched with injuries. And the quality’s simply down.”

It’s actually challenging to disagree with Strewart’s statement here because out of Celtic’s 24 Scottish Premiership fixtures this season, the 23-year-old had been left out of the matchday squad 15 instances and has been an unused substitute on two different occasions. [Transfermarkt]

Clearly had Taylor no longer been injured, Bernabei would not be getting used and he can also well havegotten his desire to move to Italy.

Doubts continue to be over whether or not or no longer Bernabei will start in opposition to Hibs on Wednesday due to his phase in Aberdeen’s opening purpose at Pittodrie however one component does seem certain, the former Argentina u23 international’s future at Celtic does seem bleak.
