STV presenter Raman Bhardwaj has revealed Celtic are in discussions with Lowland League for their Colts side to play in their league next season.
The Lowdown: Celtic youngsters leaving in numbers
However, news dropped by Bhardwaj may help the club keep hold of some of their prized assets in the long run.
The Latest: Raman Bhardwaj’s post
He added that if approved, it appears as if it would be for one season only for Celtic’s Colts outfit.
The Verdict: Could be a huge boost to McKay
To us, should discussions go well and a move be agreed upon, it could be a huge boost in regards to new Celtic CEO Dominic McKay keeping hold of some of the club’s up and coming prospects in the long run.
It would allow Celtic’s academy players to be introduced to senior competition, should loan moves away to other first-team clubs not be available.
By giving the club’s youngsters to test themselves at senior level, not only may it help in their development, but it could also benefit the club when they look to keep hold of some in-demand starlets, something former chief Peter Lawwell often failed to do.
It could also help the Lowland League clubs in regards to finances. The appeal of playing Celtic and Rangers’ youth sides in competition could draw more supporters through the turnstiles, so it seems as if a deal may have a lot of perks for the Hoops.
