Celtic are interested in signing Livingston goalkeeper Liam Kelly, according to The Scottish Sun.

The paper say that the 23-year-old shot-stopper is available this summer for a fee of just £50,000 due to a clause in his contract, which is set to expire next summer.

We’re not the only club interested either, with German side Hamburg keen on poaching him this summer along with a number of English sides.

Celtic’s interest may raise a few eyebrows but he’s been a stand-out player for Livingston this season, a side that have surprised pundits and fans on their return to the Scottish Premiership.

He’s helped keep 17 clean sheets across the course of the 2018/19 campaign, showing impressive enough form to be called up to recent Scotland squads along with Hoops number one Scott Bain.

With Dorus De Vries looking to be on his way out of Celtic Park and Craig Gordon not getting any younger, Kelly could prove to be a viable budget back-up to Bain.

His age is a positive as well, clearly having plenty of time to improve and work on his game under renowned Lennoxtown coach Stevie Woods.

Will the young goalkeeper be happy sitting on the bench though?

Does a move for Liam Kelly make sense? Share your thoughts in the comments below…
