Celtic Leave Vakoun Issouf Bayo Out of Europa League Squad

Celtic were left with a dilemma ahead of their Europa League double-header against Valencia.

Brendan Rodgers added four new faces to his first-team squad during the January transfer window with Oliver Burke, Timo Weah, Vakoun Issouf Bayo and Jeremy Toljan coming in.

However, following the latter’s deadline day loan switch from Dortmund, one new face was going to be forced to miss out on the Europa League squad.

Uefa rules only allowed three new faces to be added to any squad list and that meant one would miss out on the Valencia games coming later this month.

Celtic’s squad list has now been revealed and Ivory Coast forward Bayo – who is yet to feature for Brendan Rodgers’ side – has been the unfortunate star to miss out.

Burke, Weah and Toljan have all been included.
