Celtic are reportedly keen on signing Scunthorpe teenager Joey Dawson this summer.
That’s according to an exclusive report from Iron Bru, who claim that the League Two side face an uphill battle to keep the 17-year-old at Glanford Park.
Dawson, who is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder or at centre-forward, has been offered a long-term professional deal to stay with the Lincolnshire club, but it is believed that he will explore his options at the end of the season.
