Darren Young believes that Theo Archibald should be aiming higher than Brentford.

The Celtic youngster is currently on loan at Albion Rovers but is also wanted by Championship side Brentford.

The London side have abandoned their academy set up and have concentrated their scouting budget on picking up players in their late teens from other clubs.

Archibald has been in Celtic’s Development League side over the last two seasons and came into the limelight after scoring a spectacular goal away to Manchester City in the UEFA Youth League.

The 19-year-old plays on the left wing where his powerful running and ability to get into the penalty box has caught the eye.

On his day Theo has everything that terrorises defences as he has great pace and trickery,” Young told The Sun.

When he hits top form and runs at teams you can see them getting worried.

I am not surprised that clubs are looking at him however he could still have a career at Celtic in my opinion.

He has it all but he needs to be delivering it in every minute of every game. He is young and learning. Hopefully his spell here will help him find a really high level of consistency.”

Archibald has started 10 matches since going on loan to Cliftonhill in January with Rovers currently sitting in seventh place in League One, four points short of a promotion play off place and five clear of a relegation play off.
