Since his £4.3M arrival from Rubin Kazan, Carl Starfelt has been a rock at the heart of the Celtic defence.
His stats speak for themselves, and incredibly Celtic have NEVER lost a Scottish Premiership game when he’s he and Cameron Carter-Vickers have started together.
Of the 64 domestic games he’s played here in Scotland, the Swede has been on the losing side just twice over 90 minutes.
However – January signing Yuki Kobayashi is now breathing down his neck, and with an injury hit Starfelt making way for his Japanese team-mate at half-time in Saturday’s win over Hearts, is the door now open for Kobayashi to stake his claim for a run in the team?
Ange stated post-match that Kobayashi will be a “strong contributor” between now and the end of the season – but will that come at the expense of the ever present Starfelt?
