‘Would Be A Cracking Signing’ ‘A Good Addition’ Fans On Twitter Discuss Potential Swoop For 17 Year Old Defender

Celtic are keen on bringing Hearts left-back Aaron Hickey to Parkhead, according to reports in the Scottish media

The 17-year-old has also been linked with Rangers, Manchester City, Crystal Palace, Everton and Southampton in recent months but the Hoops are hoping to snap up the player on a cut-price deal following Hearts’ relegation.

Fans have had a mixed reaction to Celtic’s interest in Hickey:

It is true to manager Neil Lennon already has two senior left-backs at his disposal in Boli Bolingoli and Greg Taylor but neither has really convinced since their arrival last summer.

Bolingoli started off shakily before the Belgian began to show more consistency after the Old Firm win at Ibrox in September. However, he has barely featured for the first team in recent months.

Conversely, Taylor struggled to get a look-in in the first half of the season but began to play more regularly once Lennon switched to a 3-5-2 system. Even so, the Scottish international isn’t entirely convincing as a wingback so a move for Hickey isn’t surprising.
