Montgomery set for fourth SPFL Premiership club

Adam Mongomery’s career looks set for another twist with the 21-year-old expected to join Motherwell on loan.

If the deal goes through the Fir Parkers will become Mongomery’s fourth SPFL club with loans at Aberdeen and St Johnstone on his CV.

Going out on loan can become a real minefield with his deal at Fleetwood Town cut short as the League One club onto their third manager of the season after Scott Brown took Montgomery and Bosun Lawwell on loan.

Things never got going for the Scotland u-21 internationalist but Lawal seems to be progressing despite the managerial changes and his own international call ups.

Lawal has started 21 matches in League One which is exactly the sort of experience his career needed although the surplus of central defenders at Celtic suggests that he is still long odds against breaking through into the first team picture. Since moving from Watford in the summer of 2021 his first team experience consists of 10 minutes in a Scottish Cup tie at home to Morton.

Turning to Montgomery, the Daily Record reports:

Motherwell are leading the chase to sign Celtic’s Adam Montgomery.

The Steelmen are looking to fight off interest from several Premiership rivals and English clubs to land the left-sided defender. ‘Well boss Stuart Kettlewell made a left-back a priority after Huddersfield recalled Brodie Spencer.

Kettlewell pitched after Celtic recalled Montgomery from his loan spell at Fleetwood Town last week. They allowed Montgomery to go and play under former captain Scott Brown but the English side have changed manager twice since then.

Liam Shaw was the last player loaned to Motherwell from Celtic but his January 2022 deal wasn’t very successful with further switches to Morecambe and Wigan Athletic not really advancing his career.

Motherwell’s situation should be familiar to Montgomery who spent last season in a St Johnstone side that was sucked into a relegation battle that cost Callum Davidson his job.

Stuart Kettlewell was starting to feel some pressure as Motherwell dropped towards the bottom of the table after a lively start to the campaign but a home win over Livingston and a draw away to Hibs has created some breathing space with Motherwell eight points about bottom placed Livingston and five behind Hibs in sixth place.

If Montgomery’s move goes through he should be involved in Saturday’s Scottish Cup tie at home to Alloa Athletic, after that the SPFL returns with a trip to St Johnstone on January 27 followed by a visit from Kilmarnock a week later with the transfer window closed.

At Fleetwood Montgomery started just two matches in League One with a further appearance off the bench, CLICK HERE for his Soccerbase profile.
