Since arriving from MK Dons, O’Riley has been excellent – scoring 14 goals and assisting on 23 occasions in 89 appearances. Ange Postecoglou signed the player and developed him further into a promising attacking midfielder; however, he needed to bring goals to his game. This has been something that the arrival of Brendan Rodgers has assisted with.
O’Riley has been one of Celtic’s standout players this season, if not, thee standout. It is huge for the club that they have tied him down to a long tern deal, which will drive his value to a potential Scottish record.
