Celtic’s head of football operations Nicky Hammond has scouted Hibernian winger Martin Boyle, according to the Edinburgh Evening News.

The Australia international starred for Hibs as Hammond watched on from the stands on Wednesday evening, assisting both goals for the home side as they came from a goal down to win 2-1 against Hamilton Accies.

It was the second game in a row that Celtic have had representatives watching Hibs, after Tosh McKinlay travelled to Tannadice to watch their Scottish Cup draw with Dundee United on Sunday. 

Boyle is on of a growing list of wingers to have been linked with a move to Parkhead this month, after the likes of Yonaten Cohen, Stephane Diarra and Mehrdad Mohammadi.

Following the news that Celtic have scouted Boyle, a number of Hibs fans have shared their reactions, with many fearing the worst as they do not want to lose a player they consider to be one of their key men.
