Interesting dilemma for Celtic with goalkeeper offer

Image for Interesting dilemma for Celtic with goalkeeper offer

Conor Hazard is a transfer target for Accrington Stanley.

In normal circumstances a loan move would seem ideal for the young keeper but it seems that the League One side are looking for a permanent deal.

Hazard has spent time out on loan at Falkirk, Partick Thistle and Dundee but the arrival of Vasilis Barkas has pushed him back to third choice keeper at Celtic.

Hazard signed a four year contract with Celtic in September 2017 which makes the current season critical.

It seems unlikely that there will be any form of reserve football with the lower leagues in Scotland not beginning until mid October.

Once Barkas completed his transfer Ross Doohan moved on loan to Ross County where he has been a substitute in the opening two matches.

At the age of 22 Hazard needs to get a season of top team football under his belt which makes his next move interesting whether that’s at Celtic, Accrington or elsewhere.
