BEN DOAK has left the building.

The Celtic academy player has signed his first professional deal with the Anfield club as pictured below.

After getting some first team game time this season, Celtic were hoping Ben would sign with the club and continue his development with the first team.

We understand the club tried to do everything to get Ben to stay in Glasgow but his mind was made up.

Celtic have found it difficult to keep their top young talent at the club over the past 5 or 6 years for a variety of reasons.

When clubs like Liverpool, Bayern or Man City come calling, it’s an uphill battle to try and keep the players happy. However, what the club must do is have the best possible academy and pathway to the first team, so players see the value in staying and making the breakthrough.

Players have a short career and have to do what’s best for them. Ben has decided he’s better served moving down south. We wish him all the best.
