Celtic have been urged to make a move for St Mirren midfielder Jamie McGrath by The Herald’s James Cairney.
The Lowdown: McGrath profiled
His St Mirren contract, worth just £610-a-week, is up at the end of the campaign. McGrath hasn’t missed a minute of Scottish Premiership action this season and has made 69 appearances for his current employers, scoring 19 times and registering seven assists.

Yes, just what we need!
No, we can do better!
The Latest: Cairney’s claim
Cairney shared a story on The Herald on Wednesday, looking at McGrath.
He compared him to Tom Rogic and believes the Republic of Ireland international could be picked up by Celtic in a relatively cheap January transfer due to his contract situation.
Cairney described it as a low-risk swoop due to the finances that could be involved for McGrath, who has shown ‘great promise’ in Paisley.
The Verdict: Worth a punt?
On that basis, a cut-price move for McGrath could be a wise move. He knows the division extremely well and has been St Mirren’s best-rated performer this season. [WhoScored]
Celtic have reaped the rewards by bringing in Turnbull from Motherwell last year, and who knows, McGrath could be the next smart SPL addition.
