The Celtic Way journalist Tony Haggerty believes that Celtic target Liam Scales has got a massive opportunity to showcase his talent.
Football journalist at The Scotsman and Edinburgh News Barry Anderson reported on Twitter last week that a deal to take Scales from Shamrock Rovers to Celtic is pretty far down the line and a deal worth £500k should go through imminently.
Scales has featured 26 times for Shamrock Rovers in all competitions this season, scoring three goals and providing a further three assists. The 23-year-old offers versatility, operating as both a centre-back and left-midfielder on 12 occasions each this season, as well as playing left-back and defensive midfield.
And Haggerty believes it’s a massive opportunity for Scales if a deal is completely, exclusively telling Transfer Tavern: “If Celtic are his port of call from Irish football, then he is taking a huge step-up, he’s got a massive opportunity in life as well to go and be the player that a lot of people think he can be.”
If Scales does join Celtic then he would become their ninth summer signing, with Ange Postecoglou starting to build his own team at Celtic Park.
After defeat on the opening day of the Scottish Premiership season to Hearts, Celtic have responded with consecutive 6-0 victories against Dundee and St Mirren and will be looking to enter the Europa League group stages with victory over AZ Alkmaar, who they have a 2-0 lead against, heading into the second leg of the playoff round on Thursday evening.
