Celtic star Sead Haksabanovic has revolted on Instagram as the pressure on the Parkhead side intensifies ahead of a trip to Rangers.

The Montenegrin forward appears to be disgruntled at a lack of playing time and suggested that he could leave Celtic before the transfer window shuts.

The public frustrations also give an insight into a disconnect between the Parkhead side’s squad and management with the returning Brendan Rodgers a man under increasing pressure.

Taking to Instagram, Sead Haksabanovic writes:

“If they don’t see your value then maybe you’re not at the right place.”

It’s not exactly the most professional way to display your frustrations and with Celtic under increasing pressure heading into the clash with Rangers, it’s very unwelcome at Parkhead

Sead Haksabanovic shovels on Celtic pressure ahead of Rangers trip

For the Gers however, this kind of thing is exactly what we want to see with Celtic’s £9m Brendan Rodgers gamble already showing signs of wobbling.

Rangers have a huge opportunity to give the returning Parkhead manager the proverbial bloody nose with Celtic already out of the League Cup and having drawn a blank against St Johnstone this weekend.

Whilst signings are expected at Parkhead this week – our Old Firm rivals also in the midst of a defensive injury crisis – it’d be quite something to see them pitched straight in at Ibrox.

Especially considering Celtic have rejected their Ibrox ticket allocation and that there will be 50k Rangers fans baying for revenge for the Brendan Rodgers hammerings of yore.

Throw into all of this the discontent with how Rodgers left Parkhead and Sead Haksabanovic has done his team no favours ahead of the trip to Rangers.

A win for Rangers would see them leapfrog their eternal rivals in the Premiership table and lay down a title marker from which Celtic may struggle to recover.

It’s all gone a bit pear-shaped for our rivals and Rangers have got a huge chance to go out and inflict the sort of early-season wound that aches for months afterwards.
