Celtic: Josh Doig links resurface -Celtic Transfer Rumours

Celtic have been linked with a January move for Hibernian defender Josh Doig, according to The Sun.

The Lowdown: Doig profiled

Labelled as ‘phenomenal’ by former Queen’s Park boss Ray McKinnon, Doig is 19 years of age and is primarily a left-back who can also line out at centre-back or on the left of midfield.

The Scotland under-21 international has been with Hibs since July 2020 and has made 55 appearances for the club, 19 of which have come this season.

Celtic were linked with a move for Doig towards the end of the January window earlier this year, and it now seems as if Ange Postecoglou has his eye on the youngster.

The Latest: Links resurface

Reliable reporter Alan Nixon shared a story on Sunday afternoon regarding the Hoops’ interest in Barnsley’s Callum Styles.

Nixon then added that ‘another’ left-back who has been linked with a move to Parkhead is Doig.

The Verdict: Doig or Styles?

It appears as if Celtic may well be bringing three Japanese players to Parkhead in the New Year in Reo Hatate, Yosuke Ideguchi and Daizen Maeda, so it could be a case of one or the other when it comes to Doig and Styles.

The pair are at the beginning of their careers and they would both offer versatility to Postecoglou. Styles can play on the left or in two different central midfield roles, whereas Doig would give the Hoops manager another centre-back option.

Doig and Styles have also attracted interest from Premier League clubs in 2021, so you could argue that both could be shrewd signings by Celtic as Postecoglou continues his Parkhead rebuild.
