The only real surprise in the Scottish Premiership this season is with two games remaining Celtic have a mere 14 point lead over second placed Aberdeen. It has still been a relatively easy stroll to the title for the club. However, this lack of competition could be a problem for Celtic if they wish to keep hold of one of their prized assets - Virgil van Dijk.
The Dutchman is coming to the end of his second season in Scotland having signed from Groningen for £2.6m in the summer of 2013. Speaking to a Dutch radio station, the centre back expressed concerns about the uncompetitive nature of Scottish football and how it could hinder his development.
Celtic are a great club with a fantastic stadium and the fans are great. But the competition is not too good.
I want to develop. If the opportunity is there, I would definitely consider a transfer. But maybe there will be nothing.
The 23-year-old has been a major hit at Parkhead, becoming a serious goal threat along with being solid defensively. The reality is though, Celtic are now a selling club. Last summer it was Fraser Forster, this summer it could be Van Dijk.
