Celtic made an offer to take Tottenham Hotspur forward Troy Parrott on loan, according to a report from the Irish Independent.

The Spurs striker has agreed to spend the entire 2020/21 season on loan at Championship side Millwall after rejecting the chance to join the Scottish champions on a temporary basis.

Parrott apparently decided to reject offers from Celtic and a few other clubs as he thinks that spending a year working with Millwall manager Gary Rowett will be best for his development.

Parrott is another forward that Celtic have made an offer for, so it’s clear that Neil Lennon is looking to make additions to that particular area of his squad.

18-year-old Parrot is highly thought of at Tottenham and could have been a useful addition to Celtic’s squad, and the Hoops have been happy to take youngsters from Premier League sides in the past, with Patrick Roberts one obvious example.

However, in truth, it’s probably best for the Hoops to be targeting players with a bit more experience than Parrot, players who could have a long-term future at Celtic Park and as such, it’s not a huge issue that the Irishman rejected a move to the champions of Scotland.
