Former Celtic starlet continues to shine in Germany as he’s named as one of the best young talents in world football

It’s never good news for a fan when a talented youngster leaves the club, but it can often take years to figure out how much of a loss they were.

It’s pretty common to see players leave at a young age only for them to struggle to make the breakthrough, so they’ll usually end up back in Scotland with a lower Premiership or Championship team.

The gap between Celtic’s youth teams and the senior squad is massive so the vast majority of players aren’t going to make the grade, but it’s maybe time to wonder what might have been with Liam Morrison.

He left Celtic Park for Bayern Munich when he was 16 so he was nowhere near a first team call up, but he was clearly talented and Celtic did all they could to keep him.

His development in Germany has been impressive, to the point that he was included in The Guardian’s list of the most talented youngsters in world football.

They quote some of his former coaches who say he has the potential to play at the highest level and there are even suggestions that Bayern think he’s similar to Mats Hummels.

He’s now been promoted to the U19 team for Bayern and it sounds like he’s impressing at that level too, so it would be amazing if he managed to force his way into the first team.

Obviously losing him is a sore one for Celtic, but the national team are crying out for decent centre backs so it would still be a proud moment if he goes on to become a top class player.
