READ CELTIC VERDICT
Kouassi will certainly be hoping to make the most of his opportunity given the uncertainty surrounding his future and his lack of game time for either the senior squad or Reserves this season.
The midfielder has reportedly considered leaving the club in January, while reports have also suggested the Hoops are willing to offload him in the New Year.
Celtic have also been scouting midfielder’s ahead of the January window, emphasising how important a game this could be for Kouassi.
