One player who has flown under the radar since joining Celtic is former Manchester Utd man Lee O’Connor. The versatile defender joined the Scottish Champions on deadline day back at the start of September and has been going about his business for the developmental side.

When the deal was done many Manchester Utd fans were up in arms the club would let O’Connor leave on a permanent basis – we got the scoop from a well informed Utd account about the player’s upside.

The Irishman was called up the under 21 international squad this month and last night he stole the show in a game where the Irish took it to the Italians and were unlucky not to win on the night. The game ended 0-0 – earning Ireland a point who consolidated their place atop their Euro qualifying group.

Many took to social media after the game to praise the squad but in-particular the new Celtic starlet O’Connor who sounds as if a first team Celtic call up could be on the way this season.
