Lots of Celtic supporters have been talking about a footage involving Luca Connell that recently emerged on social media.
Celtic had recently loaned out Connell to Queen’s Park, who relayed a video involving the Hoops starlet. This came after Connell had come up with a ‘man of the match’ performance for Queen’s Park in a game against Stranraer. He even got an assist in the game.
Should Luca Connell be in the Celtic first-team next season?
The video involving Connell had him talking about the game. He said that he was ‘very happy’ with the game and it was good for the side to get all three points from the result.
This tweet involving Connell drew the attention of lots of Celtic fans, who made their views clear about the player.
What do Celtic fans make of Luca Connell?
Celtic had signed Connell from Bolton Wanderers in the summer of 2019 for a fee of £369k. During his time at Parkhead, he didn’t make a single first-team appearance for the Bhoys. The Irishman was on the bench for the side twice this season and his appearance against Stranraer was his first of the season in all competitions (as per Transfermarkt).
“Absolutely no surprise at all. This bhoy is a genuine talent.”
A lot of these Celtic fans are making it clear that Connell should be playing in the first-team and he shouldn’t have been loaned out in the first place.
The 19-year-old is a defensive midfielder by trade and he can also play at left-back. There are doubts about Scott Brown’s future at Parkhead and Diego Laxalt’s loan stint expires in the summer as well.
So if Connell gets some first-team experience with Queen’s Park, he could perhaps come back and add depth to the midfield for the Bhoys.
