Celtic interested in January swoop for Josh Doig

Celtic are interested in a deal to bring Josh Doig to Parkhead in the January transfer window.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to Alan Nixon’s recent report for The Sun, with the journalist stating in his article that Celtic are keeping a very close eye on the situation of the Hibernian left-back ahead of a potential move for the 19-year-old in the winter market.

Nixon then went on to relay some quotes given by Charlie Nicholas concerning the Scotland U21 international, who believes the Bhoys should sign Doig – due to the youngster fitting the Kieran Tierney mould.

Speaking about the Hibs teenager, Nicholas said: “Celtic can’t go out and buy the finished article. They need to develop players and sell them on. That is the club’s model.”

Who would be a better signing?

Fans will be buzzing

Considering the sheer amount of potential Doig appears to possess, the news that Ange Postecoglou is interested in sealing a deal for the defender this winter is sure to have left the Parkhead faithful buzzing.

Indeed, despite being just 19 years of age, the £3.6m-rated left-back is already a first-team regular at Easter Road, having already featured 55 times for the club’s first team.

Of these 55 appearances, 14 have come in the current Premiership campaign, over which the £710-per-week man has helped his side keep three clean sheets, provided one assist and created one big chance for his teammates, as well as making an average of 0.9 key passes, 0.6 interceptions, 1.4 tackles and winning 4.9 duels per game.

Can you guess which Celtic player scored the most goals during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

These returns have seen the teenager average a very respectable SofaScore match rating of 6.74 – something that will only improve with great experience and, potentially, when being surrounded with more talented teammates.

As such, with Neil Lennon’s £3.01m 2019 signing Boli Bolingoli looking to be on his way out of Parkhead this winter, Postecoglou could well be in need of a new addition on the left-hand side of his defence – and who better to be that addition than one of Scotland’s most exciting up and coming talents, in the shape of Doig.

AND in other news, Ange can finally replace Van Dijk at Celtic in £6m swoop for £20k-p/w “absolute beast”…
