Celtic are reportedly keeping tabs on a goalkeeper that helped shut the Bhoys out at Paradise last month.

With Celtic not having a full-time manager at the moment, it’s down to Neil Lennon and the scouting team to prepare for next season as much as they possibly can. With that in mind, SunSport have revealed the club are ‘monitoring’ Livingston goalkeeper Liam Kelly who could leave the Premiership side in the summer for a cut-price deal

The report mentions Celtic’s interest in the player but believes the goalkeeper is unlikely to be over enthused about playing backup at another club.

SunSport wrote: Celtic are understood to be monitoring Kelly’s situation too, but they don’t believe he would be prepared to be an understudy at Parkhead.

Celtic have Bain as their number one with Craig Gordon now the backup. If Gordon chooses to move on this summer or Celtic decide to sell the player then a backup would be needed.

The ex-Ibrox goalkeeper has a clause in his contract where he could walk for around £50k.

Kelly has proven himself to be a very solid and reliable goalkeeper this term with Livingston. His great display at Celtic Park would have done the goalie no harm.
