Matt O’Riley’s performances for the Scottish champions have earned interest from south of the border, with Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal among those who have been linked with moves.

The 21-year-old has impressed since arriving from MK Dons for just £1.5m, providing goals and assists from midfield.

When asked about reports linking him with a move to one of the English football giants, O’Riley said he’s ‘not really thinking about much’ and said that ‘I love my football here’.

The news will be welcome for Hoops fans, with the transfer window set to close on Thursday.


One player who could be leaving Celtic Park is striker Albian Ajeti.

The Swiss international has not lived up to expectations since arriving from West Ham United in 2020, with Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgos Giakoumakis the favourites up front.

According to Sky Sports News editor Anthony Joseph, Ajeti could soon be on his way out.

He tweeted: “Celtic striker Albian Ajeti is looking to leave the club before the end of the transfer window. Celtic will not stand in his way & are open to offers.

“It’s understood Ajeti hasn’t been convinced by the clubs who have expressed an interest, so far, but knows time is running out.”
