Celtic: Journalist links Hoops with Jamie McGrath

Celtic: Journalist links Hoops with Jamie McGrath -Celtic

Celtic have been urged to make a move for St Mirren midfielder Jamie McGrath by The Herald’s James Cairney.

The Lowdown: McGrath profiled

McGrath, labelled as ‘different class’ by Jim Goodwin, is 25 years of age and is primarily an attacking midfielder who can also play on either wing.

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.

Would you take McGrath at Celtic?

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.

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

The Verdict: Worth a punt?

The Hoops are fairly short of senior central midfield options at this moment in time, with Ange Postecoglou relying heavily on Rogic, Callum McGregor and David Turnbull.

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.
