    Celtic are ‘hunting’ Norwegian international Birger Meling as a replacement for Kieran TIerney.

    He’s one player Hoops fans will be familiar with, having played against the Scottish champions several times with his side Rosenborg, and even scored at Parkhead last July against Celtic.

    The left-back is 24 years old, and was a former youth product at Middlesbrough.

    He moved back to his homeland in 2014 to join Stabæk, before sealing a switch to Rosenborg in 2017.

    Meling has gone on to make 10 caps for Norway since then, and according to TV2 pundit and former player Jesper Mathisen, Celtic have been tracking him recently.

    He said:

    Meling has been hunted a bit by Celtic.
    They sold their left back to Arsenal, so they have a hole there.
    Meling is a player they know well, because Celtic has played against Rosenborg a couple of times.
    One to keep your eyes on over the next few days.

    Is there anybody on here who’s watched him consistently? Played very well against us but don’t know how he is week in, week out and heard mixed reports.

    I can’t remember much of him in the games against us, other than his goal at CP.

    He sounds like what someone with a speech impediment would say about a bad experience at McDonald's.

    Forrest has ruined him a few time's but then Forrest has ruined most fullbacks..

    Apparently isn't as good as he's shown against us but is a decent age and played loads in Europe and now for the national side..

    I'd prefer him to Taylor. Taylor is a big put off at the back for a start because he's tiny although he's actually pretty decent with potential..

    Didn't realise Melling was still only 24. 5'10 and good going forward..

    What sort of fee would they be looking for if this is legit?

    Worth bearing in mind he was only 22 or so when he was up against Forrest.

    He says he isn’t as good as he was when he was playing us?
