Celtic teenager Adam Montgomery has been catching the eye at Parkhead since the start of 2021, according to Kieran Devlin for The Athletic.
The Lowdown: Ange gets off to a winning start
Ange Postecoglou took charge of Celtic for the first time during the week – the Hoops are on a pre-season tour in Wales and defeated Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 thanks to goals from Albian Ajeti, Owen Moffat and Odsonne Edouard.
Left-back Montgomery was one of seven teenagers involved across two starting line-ups, and it appears as if the teenager has been impressing at Parkhead since January.
The Latest: Devlin’s claim
Devlin, Celtic’s writer for The Athletic, shared a story on Thursday following the Hoops’ first pre-season clash. In the piece, claimed that club sources indicate that Montgomery ‘has looked bright’ since the start of 2021.
The Verdict: The next Tierney?
Former Hoops left-back Kieran Tierney recently hailed Montgomery as “a good talent and a decent boy”, and it seems as if he has been making a positive impact at Lennoxtown over the last seven months.
Celtic have just Greg Taylor and Boli Bolingoli as senior options at left-back, with the Belgian linked with a permanent move to Turkey.
Should that materialise, Montgomery may well get the nod from Postecoglou to feature more regularly during the 2021/22 season, and who knows, the youngster could end up becoming the next Tierney in years to come.
