READ CELTIC VERDICT
The highly rated Antonio Marin scored the only goal of the game for Zagreb, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he was the reason why there were so many clubs in attendance.
The 18-year-old has already been linked with the likes of City, and while it is unclear who Celtic were supposedly keeping tabs on, Marin is likely to have caught the eyes on Wednesday.
The winger has already made 16 senior appearances for Zagreb and has represented Croatia just shy of 50 times in total for their respective youth teams.
