Celtic: Liam Scales earns Republic of Ireland call up

Celtic: Liam Scales earns Republic of Ireland call up -Celtic

Celtic defender Liam Scales has been called up to the Republic of Ireland’s senior squad.

The Lowdown: Scales at Celtic

The 23-year-old was one of 12 summer signings to arrive at Parkhead, costing the club £540,000 from Shamrock Rovers.

The versatile defender, labelled as ‘quick’ by Graham Gartland, is yet to start for the Hoops, though, with his only appearance coming against Raith Rovers in the League Cup.

He’s now got the chance to make his first senior appearance for his country during the international break ahead of his return to Glasgow.

The Latest: Joseph’s post

Sky Sports reporter Anthony Joseph took to Twitter to share the news regarding Scales.

He revealed that Scales has replaced Swansea City’s Ryan Manning who withdrew through injury, with the Hoops man now set to be around the squad for games against Azerbaijan and Qatar.

How well do you remember these Celtic signings? First up, where did Christopher Jullien arrive from?

The Verdict: Celtic start pending?

The Daily Record believe that Ange Postecoglou will have one eye on Ireland’s clash with Azerbaijan on Saturday.

So, should Scales make his senior international debut and hold his own, that could tempt Postecoglou into handing him a first Hoops start against Motherwell.

Greg Taylor remains sidelined with a shoulder injury and Josip Juranvoic also picked up a knock recently, so Scales could be an option to feature at left-back at Fir Park.
