    First Celtic appearance vs St Johnstone at only 17. Went on loan to Queens Park for the first half of the season, making 14 appearances and netting a goal. Listed at RB and can also play on the wing according to transfermarkt. Heard earlier on the "Loan Watch" thread that he was thriving at Queens and has the potential to be another Tierney. Lets only hope!

    Disnt see too much of the ball, though he was always making himself available, keen to receive the ball and sensible enough to pass it on without doing anything too 'ambrose' like. Also made some good forward runs in to the box, though didn't come to much I wouldn't say was a bad thing from him.
    One to watch and obviously have high hopes of another Tierney type player. See how he does pre season. If up for it get him rotating/playing with an experienced rb. If not, loan him to a hibs/Motherwell if hibs manage to come up.

    Only and end of season game that doesn't matter but vital experience for him all the same. He must have been impressing if he's getting handed a debut at 17.

    Hopefully another Tierney. Good to see players getting a chance at such a young age.

    He was the man of the match in the Petrofac Training Cup semi for Queens Park at 16, and as we all know from the Scottish media that is a world class competition.

    I remember thinking Tierney looked * after his debut so I wouldn't look into his performance at all.

    I really liked the look of him when he played for the youth's, would be great in a few years
    having him and Tierney occupying both full back spots with Jozo and Erik in between.

    Hopefully we get to see more of him again on Sunday.

    17 and has had a taste of it. Good size, good in the tackle from the little we saw and bombs forward..

    He certainly has a chance, and plenty of time. Thought he looked fairly promising..

    Looks a good lad. Lads just needs ALOT of game time and a little more development and I reckon he will be a decent lad.

    Should have played the full development squad in these last 2 games. Maybe except Griffiths since he was chasing his 40th goal.

    He's a fair size of lad for 17.

    Most 17 year olds are scrawny wee *.

    Aye with more meat on a butchers pencil, such as KT at 17.

    They really are haha.

    He'll be the biggest 17 year old in the squad, easily.
