Video: Ali McCann showreel from Galatasaray draw that proves he could cut it at Celtic

Ali McCann turned out an excellent performance against Galatasaray in the Europa League Qualifiers on Thursday in Istanbul. The 21-year-old has been a consistent performer for Saints, flourishing under Callum Davidson last season as they won both the League Cup and Scottish Cup. Celtic watched McCann on a number of occasions last year, with Steve Brown (Saints Chairman) stating that it would take £2m to sign the player.

His performance against Galatasaray is impressive but not surprising, McCann has continued to impress at club level as well as for Northern Ireland. The Edinburgh-born youngster could prove to be a long-term midfield stalwart for Celtic, if a move is sanctioned.

With Scott Brown and Olivier Ntcham leaving the club this summer and Ryan Christie’s future still up in the air, a move for McCann could prove to be a very shrewd bit of business.
