Celtic have flagged up their interest in St Johnstone midfielder Ali McCann, according to the Daily Record.
The Lowdown: Hoops’ previous scouting trips
Celtic have been keeping a close eye on McCann over the last six months.
The Latest: Celtic flag up interest
The Daily Record dropped a line on McCann in a piece mainly on Celtic’s pursuit of Manchester City man Fergal Harkin as their director of football.
They suggested that McCann has been flagged up at Celtic Park as a potential addition, as well as Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet.
The Verdict: A solid long-term addition?
The majority of McCann’s displays this season came as a central midfielder, an area of the pitch where it seems the Hoops need to strengthen.
Scott Brown will be an Aberdeen player next season, whereas reports have hinted that the Hoops will terminate Olivier Ntcham’s deal next month.
That could leave Celtic with Ismaila Soro, Callum McGregor and David Turnbull as central midfielders, so bringing in McCann could prove a shrewd move in the long run.
