Michael Sparkes has announced his departure from Celtic.

In January the young striker was linked with a move to Crystal Palace, it’s not clear tonight whether he has been released at the end of his contract or if he has rejected a new deal from Celtic.

With his father Raymond an agent for more than 30 years Michael should have a few options to continue his career which will almost certainly be outside of Scotland.

After being capped for Scotland at u-16 level Sparkes switched to Wales at u-17 level.

The future of under-age football in Scotland is under real threat from the suspension of the game in March and the financial impact of the 2020/21 season being played before greatly reduced crowds.

Hibs have already released three coaches with other clubs having to ensure the viability of their first team with savings and cut-backs taking place elsewhere.
