LIAM BURT returned to the club he played for as a very young lad when he rejoined Celtic after eight years.

The midfielder has spent the past eight years coming through the ranks at Ibrox. After his Celtic spell ended at under 12 level the player was picked up by Rangers scouts.

Liam made it clear earlier this summer where his allegiances lied now he was free to let everyone know he was a Celtic fan.

The reserve star has rejoined Celtic under Neil Lennon with Willie McStay and the club restacking the deck in the developmental department.

Burt has told the Celtic view towards the end of his Ibrox career he wasn’t happy. He let them know and before too long he was on his way. As fate would have it he would stroll up to Lennoxtown a few weeks later to be part of a bounce game where he earned a Celtic contract.

“I was around eight when I first joined Celtic and I left at Under-12 level.

“Then I was at Rangers for around eight years. Towards the end of last season, I just wasn’t enjoying my football.

“I had a talk with Rangers and expressed my feeling, they expressed theirs and we parted ways.

“Willie McStay was always back and forth with me.

“I had other options, but this was my main focus. I’m hoping to start every game in the reserves, score more goals and catch the manager’s eye.

“It’s all down to impressing every day in training.”
