Tash Flint can earn permanent move to Celtic by delivering silverware

Another Tash Flint loan deal is something we’ll certainly take, but it’s time for us to knuckle down in the summer and get her in permanently, at the second time of asking.

As we’re well aware, Fran Alonso was hoping that Tash would put pen to paper last May, but it didn’t happen as her childhood club came in for her. Although she comes from a Celtic family, I can imagine it’s hard to turn down the WSL and a club you support should they come calling.

Back in May, Alonso said: “It’s a difficult player to retain because obviously the finances in England are at a totally different level, but she loves it here. The family loves it here. She feels that it is a very, very special club, so we will try our best.”

After joining on deadline day last January, Tash scored 11 goals in the second half of the season, with one of those coming in the final of the Scottish Cup. She’ll be hoping to find her form in Glasgow and there’s no doubt that the forward could have an impact on the Hoops season.

We have the clinical finisher that some fans think we need, but again, we need to do everything in our power to keep her come the end of the season.

This is a loan deal. We need to prepare for the fact that she may not be around next campaign. But a player who grabs the hearts of fans and can clearly perform in this league needs to be tied down and kept at the club.

Celtic is a special club, and the fans would love nothing more than for Tash to play a big part in our history. She has certainly formed a personal connection, being seen celebrating the men’s achievements in style at the Gallowgate, before opening the scoring against theRangers in the cup final the next day.

These are the types of players that will lead us to victory, so how about we start by making Tash Flint a permanent addition to Elena Sadiku’s squad. The fans can’t wait to see you back on the pitch, Tash!

  1. Great news but still not enough in my opinion ,I’m hopeful that the new coach will be able to use her wide network of contacts to bring in the players we need , a proper left sided defender would be a good start , Hail hail .
