Brendan Rodgers vows to make Charly Musonda better player - only next season
Chelsea loanee has not had much playing time ever since his January transfer
The Belgian made a bright start to his Celtic career but has failed to build on that. In particular, Musonda, 21, was a late sub in both Celtic's Europa League legs against Zenith and remained an unused sub in the Old Firm, the derby against Rangers.
But head coach Brendan Rodgers is assured the player's time will come, just a tad later.
He says: "He’s absolutely fine. He knows he is here for the 18 months and by the end of that, he knows he is going to be a better player.
"It’s a different type of loan for Charly compared to when he went to Spain and had to succeed straight away. Here he has 18 months to settle in, find the way of working and realising the pressures of a big club like Celtic.
"But he’s enjoying every minute of it and he knows that over time here that he will get an opportunity to show it in training where he works well and then in the games. It’s just time, that’s all.
"I expect Charly to come into his own next season. He’ll make some appearances, from when he arrived in January to the end of this season. Then I think next season will be a big one for him, to make his mark."
