CELTIC is rumoured to sign Ireland Under-19 International Johnny Kenny. As all signs pointed towards the prospect joining Hibernian but have opted for Bodo/Glimit youngster instead.

Kenny, who signed a new 3-year contract in November of 2021, has a release clause of just over £120,000. In his first season as a professional footballer, he hit the double-figure of goals scored in all competitions.

Born in 2003, Kenny is aged 18 and is currently contracted to Sligo Rovers. With his goal-scoring, he helped his side finish third in the league of Ireland last season. Their season ended in November.

Of course, this is just a rumour, with no mainstream outlet reporting the potential move just yet.  If Kenny was to join Celtic ‘in the next few days’ he would presumably compete for a place in the B team. It would be interesting to see Celtic try to loan the player to another Scottish team so he can gain experience, however Celtic very rarely do so.
