Four former Celts team up at Championship club

For the best part of a decade Cappielow was the home ground for Celtic in the Development/Reserve/u-20 League.

Under Stevie Frail, Tommy McIntyre and John Kenndy a succession of young players would be out to impress with the Directors Box right on top of the halfway line with virtually every comment audible to the gathering of a few hundred supporters.

Kieran Tierney was about the only player to make it through to first team level, memorably scoring a goal from his own penalty box against Hearts in 2014.

Not everyone goes on to win Trebles and move to Arsenal, finding their level somewhere in the professional game is a realistic goal.

It seems that Cappielow has some sort of magical pulling power with four former Celts, none of whom played a competitive game for the hoops donning the blue and white version for Saturday’s 2-0 win over St Mirren.

Last season Ryan Mullen made a favourable impact at Clyde, although they were relegated to League Two the goalkeeper has stepped up to The Championship.

Calum Waters was on loan from Kilmarnock last season, doing enough to earn a permanent move to Greenock.

Steven Boyd was at Inverness Caley Thistle last season but has returned to the central belt, previously he was at Hamilton Accies where he was known to Dougie Imrie.

Frankie Deane is a bit younger than the other trio, after playing for Celtic B in the Lowland League in season 21/22 he was at Burnley last season. Listed as a Trialist against St Mirren there could be a few offers coming in if he has been released by the newly promoted EPL side.
