Top Australian sports journalist Vince Rugari delivered a brilliant response to the rumours surrounding Celtic and Riley McGree.

The Socceroo star finished a loan deal with Birmingham and rejoined his parent club Charlotte on January 1st.

The Hoops boss is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing in Riley – a player Ange has known for a very long time.

Addressing the rumours – while Vince couldn’t speak to the legitimacy of the reports – he did give glowing praise and suggested the midfielder would be a great signing for Celtic.

Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi coming in to play in midfield means if Celtic do sign Riley, there will be incredible competition for places in a section of the park we’ve struggled to keep players for this year.

Celtic are currently in phase 2 of their rebuild under Ange and the manager appears to be getting a massive say.

The Japanese trio signings came straight from Ange’s wish list and you’d have to image Riley has been flagged by the former Socceroo boss.

We’ll keep an eye on this deal.
