Reliable journalist gives huge endorsement to Socceroos midfielder linked with Celtic

When moving clubs, managers do tend to sign players that they are familiar with – their tried and trusted partners who have done them wonders in the past, and who they will look to in order to be successful in the future. Brendan Rodgers did it with Scott Sinclair and Kolo Toure, Ronny Deila did it with Jo Inge Berget, and well, Neil Lennon, we aren’t sure.

But given the newfound appointment of the boss from Down Under, Ange Postecoglou, there has been a real flurry of transfer rumours – and, as predictably as ever, this includes the links between Ange and players from Australia. Yet, there are some incredibly talented players being linked as he looks to find a foothold in the job at Glasgow with players he recognises; starting with Aaron Mooy.

Mooy is undoubtedly a player of real quality, and although he has plied his trade in Scotland before as a youngster, it appears he is willing to have another crack at the whip. Having being ousted at St Mirren as a 22 year old, Mooy went on to Melbourne City, where he excelled to the point of Ange – then the Australia manager – calling him ‘the best and most exciting player in the A-League’, something which could bode well for the future.

Having picked up the all-time A-League record for assists that season, he moved to Huddersfield Town, where he again excelled in the Championship, before moving to The Terriers permanently for £10million. He dazzled fans here, before moving to Brighton and subsequently Shanghai – although a move is in the offing.

His talent has been noted by various journalists alike – yet one sticks out; an endorsement from Mark Guidi. With quotes attributed to The Go Radio Football Show, Guidi said: “To be honest, if Celtic can get him, that is a really good signing. It is a proper first team, ready to make an impact, help you win the league kind of signing.”

If he can replicate the form he showed at Melbourne City, Huddersfield and even Brighton, then Mooy would be a superb signing for Celtic – let’s hope him and fellow countryman Tom Rogic can form an Aussie partnership better than Warner and Ponting…
