Celtic are interested in signing midfielder Riley McGree from Club Brugge, according to a report in the Scotsman.

The 19-year-old joined the Belgian side from A-League side Adelaide United in the summer but he’s yet to break into their team and it is believed that Brugge are ready to cut their losses and let him leave in January.

Celtic were interested in the Australian in the summer and they’re likely to be back in for him again if he does become available, as is expected.

Rangers are also said to be keen to sign the midfielder but at this moment in time, it’ll be tough for them to get anyone to commit to going to Ibrox as their club continues to go from one mess to the next.

Brendan Rodgers has been keen to bring young players to Celtic and he’s shown a willingness to give them regular first-team football too, which could make them an intriguing destination for McGree.
