ANGE POSTECOGLOU has confirmed that two players from the Colts team will be travelling to Australia to compete in the Sydney Cup.
Scott Robertson will also travel with Bosun Lawal and Rocco Vata to Australia, with Ange giving the youngsters the chance to impress. The manager confirmed this during his press conference on Celtic TV.
Lawal is a highly-rated prospect, arriving from Watford’s academy last summer. Vata, the son of Ruidi, has set the Lowland League alight this season, scoring and assisting for fun. He’s on the verge of stepping up to the first team, with Ange keen to have a closer look at the player.
Of course, Rocco scored for Celtic in pre-season while the side were on a training camp in Europe.
It’s a big chance for the two B team players, but also for Scott Robertson, who hasn’t been anywhere near the squad, with the odd few exceptions, since he returned from loan in the summer.
