Young Celtic goalkeepers, Conor Hazard and Ross Doohan were both in under-21s action this evening, for Nothern Ireland and Scotland respectively.
Hazard, who is currently considered as Celtic’s third-choice keeper, behind Vasilias Barkas and Scott Bain, was up against Finland for his nation in their European Championships Qualifying campaign, losing out 3-2.
On the other hand, Ross Doohan and Scotland took one step closer to qualification by defeating the Czech Republic 2-0. Doohan is, of course, on-loan at fellow Scottish Premiership side Ross County but has yet to start a game for the Staggies.
In the same match, two fellow Celtic youngsters David Turnbull and Kerr McInroy were on the bench for the Tartan Army but weren’t given any game time, in the crucial tie and Tynecastle.
It is good to see Celtic youngsters out featuring for the u21 national sides. Whether that be players from the first-team or those out on loan, it really does show the progression they are having and could go on to have an impact for both Celtic and Scotland’s senior side.
