This summer is shaping up in a lot of ways to be a big one for Celtic. Neil Lennon certainly has his work cut out for him, especially as it looks increasingly likely that they’ll be losing Kieran Tierney to Arsenal in the next few weeks, making the demand for a new left-back even greater when also considering how poor Emilio Izaguirre is.
With that being the case, finding a new left-sided defender is going to be absolutely crucial, which is where these links from The Daily Record come in, as the young Derby defender Max Lowe is being touted with a move to Parkhead after impressing in the 2018/19 season on-loan with Aberdeen.
For those of you who are sceptical that Tierney will leave, it’s time to look at the facts, everywhere you turn the links are there, and with The Scottish Sun reporting that Arsenal are to offer the defender £20m in wages, coupled with The Times reporting that the Gunners have tabled a second bid, things don’t look good.
It could be the case that two new left-backs are needed to fill the Tierney void and give them cover to truly banish the lacklustre Izaguirre who will likely also be on his way in less than a week’s time at the end of his contract. But who better to come in than a young defender who has already experienced Scottish football first-hand as one of the two?
That’s where Derby’s Lowe comes in. The left-back is just 22-years-old yet last season for both Derby and Aberdeen he managed to make 47 appearances in all competitions, where he chipped in with three goals and two assists to aid his team, statistics via Transfermarkt.
The future looks very bright for the youngster wherever he ends up, it’s just up to the Bhoys to ensure that he manages to find his way to Parkhead for the next few seasons to come, and it likely won’t take him long to endear himself to the Hoops if he does manage to get this summer move.
