Celtic podcaster Enda Coll has recently talked about Celtic’s potential move for Scottish defender Aaron Hickey.
Coll was talking about many topics involving the Hoops when he appeared in the latest video on his YouTube channel, where he spoke about Celtic’s potential move for Bologna and ex-Hearts defender Aaron Hickey. He believes that the youngster is exactly the sort of signing the Bhoys should be making.
Is Hickey good enough for Celtic?
Hickey has played for the Celtic junior side in the past, but he joined Bologna from Hearts last summer despite interest from the Hoops. However, they are said to be closing in on a move for him this summer, as per SunSport.
Coll believes that Hickey fits the model of the sort of signings that Celtic should make, as he even fits the bill for being an Ange Postecoglou type of player.
He said: “He [Postecoglou] wants dynamic full-backs, he wants players who can get up forward on the pitch, put a high press on and also be back defensively and have a defensive mind as well. So I think Aaron Hickey fits that model, I think he will be a good player.
“I’ve heard a lot of people give out that Celtic shouldn’t be signing a player this young to be a starting player. This is the exact type of player Celtic need to be signing; they need to be signing young, they need to be signing fresh. But Aaron Hickey also has first-team experience, he’s also played in Scotland. He knows what the league’s about and I think he will be a really good signing for Celtic going forward.”
TIF Thoughts on Hickey…
Greg Taylor is an option at left-back, but the Scotsman wasn’t quite a regular last season, while deputy Diego Laxalt has recently departed. So having another left-back in the side would be a good option for the Hoops and since Hickey has experience of playing in Scotland and he’s a Celtic fan, he could well be a reliable signing for the Hoops.
