Many Celtic fans online have been left excited after hearing the club could make a move for young defender Jamie Hamilton.

As reported by TEAMtalk, Hamilton Academical are set to lose the talented teenager, with a number of clubs interested in the centre-back and his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Alongside the Bhoys, rival Scottish outfits Hibernian and Aberdeen are also said to be keen on a deal. In England, a host of Premier League clubs are also linked with Hamilton, such as Brighton & Hove Albion, Brentford, Newcastle United and Burnley – though Liverpool are believed to have the ‘strongest interest’.

This information was shared online by Everything Celtic and it soon had a number of supporters excitedly discussing the prospect.

Here’s what these Celtic fans said…

“Looks like Dermot’s back from his holidays.”
“Yes please.”
“He’s an ok player from what I remember, loves a red card also from what I remember… but if he’s for free 19 y/o decent amount of game time he’s had at Hamilton wouldn’t be the worst free transfer ever.”

“Low-risk high reward why not.”

“Decent player, dangerous at set-pieces, quicker than any of our centre backs, only 19 get him signed up.”

“He’s 19?? Honestly thought he’d been in their first team for like 5 years.”

Judging from these comments, a lot of Celtic fans would be willing to take a chance on the young defender. With over 60 appearances to his name at club level despite still being a teenager, you can understand the interest.

Should Celtic sign Jamie Hamilton?





However, one potential shortcoming in his game may well be his discipline. After all, he has already picked up five red cards for Hamilton in his short career so far.

Though, perhaps this is something that could be ironed out of his game as he matures.
