Andrew Gutman made his first appearance since playing on Celtic’s pre-season matches in Austria and Switzerland- helping Cincinnati to a 2-2 draw away to Columbus Crew.

The left-back joined Cincinnati on loan last week and helped his new side end a depressing run of four straight defeats that has left them six points adrift at the bottom of the MLS Easter Conference.

Gutman joined Celtic in January from college football in the USA but it’s believed that he hasn’t been given a work permit due to his lack of international appearances and footballing pedigree.Despite that he appeared to settle in confidently during the pre=season matches as Neil Lennon got a look at the 22-year-old.

Gutman was on loan with Charlotte Independence at the time but is now signed up with Cincinnati for the remainder of this season and next.

With Boli Bolingoli signed up last month and Neil Lennon looking to sign another left-back it’s difficult to see where Gutman will fit in at Celtic.
