Celtic fans react to the signing of Filip Benkovic

Celtic have agreed on a deal to sign the Leicester City defender Filip Benkovic on loan this season.

The highly-rated defender completed his move last night but the deal was in place for days. Benkovic even attended Celtic’s European clash against Suduva earlier this week.

Brendan Rodgers could use some defensive depth and Benkovic should prove to be a quality addition.

The 21-year-old needs to play regularly at this stage of his career and a loan move makes sense for him as well.

However, it seems that Benkovic’s signing has been overshadowed by the departure of Moussa Dembele. The Celtic star has joined Lyon permanently and the fans are not happy about it.

Celtic announced the signing of Benkovic after the departure of Dembele and the fans believe that it was a PR stunt designed to appease the fans.

They believe that the club was trying to soften the blow with a last minute signing.

Here is how they reacted to the news on Twitter.
