Connor Barron attracts Celtic interest as champions scout Aberdeen rising star

06 Th6 2022 | 08:56 | Football

Celtic have ruled Aberdeen’s highly-rated youngster Connor Barron today.

Hoops sent scouts to watch the 19-year-old impress in Scotland U21’s clash with Belgium.

Fast sports understand that Ange Postecoglou and his team of scouts have been impressed with Barron throughout the season.

The midfielder was a standout for Scot Gemmill’s side, winning a point against the runaway leaders.

Aberdeen boss Jim Goodwin has identified Barron as a key ingredient in his rebuilding and they will have to have a big offer to consider selling.

Barron had a breakout season at Aberdeenafter returning from a loan spell with Kelty Hearts.

The midfielder has started every Goodwin game in the league this season, following success under former Kelty coach Kevin Thomson.

He signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract at Pittodrie in January under the leadership of Stephen Glass.

Celtic lost quarterbacks Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton in the summer, with Postecoglou’s reinforcement goal in midfield.
