Celtic academy youngster Ben Doak is reportedly being watched by English Premier League giants Liverpool.

The 16-year old winger has burst onto the scene in the last few months, having impressed in the Celtic under-18s squad, which granted the youngster a step up to Tommy McIntyre’s B side in the Lowland League.

After grabbing a goal and an assist within his first two games with the young Hoops, Doak also found himself on the bench for Ange Postecoglou’s sides trip to McDiarmid Park on boxing day and could have become the club’s youngster ever player had he been brought on as a substitute.

According to Sun Sport, Doak is now reportedly being eyed up by Jurgen Klopp’s side, who will aim to bring the Scotland under-17 internationalist to Anfield.

The report also states that Celtic aims to fight off the interest by getting Doak signed up on a longer-term deal with the youngster not yet being on professional terms, having not long turned 16.

With talents such as Liam Morrison and Barry Hepburn being lost to European giants in the last few years, we can only hope that Celtic have learned their lesson on this occasion and are able to secure the talented winger on a deal that sees him remain at Parkhead.
