Luca Connell is making up for lost time after coming out of cold storage.

On Friday the teenager helped Ireland’s u-21 side to a 2-1 victory over Wales, four days later he has opened his scoring account for Queens Park as they step up their promotion push.

The Spiders raced into a 2-0 half-time lead over Albion Rovers at Cliftonhill tonight to put Ray McKinnon’s side on course for their third win since the League Two season was resumed.

Connell’s career has been something of a mystery with Celtic fans curious about his stalled progress.

In the second half of the 2018/19 season he broke into the Bolton team, providing a little hope as the club nose-dived towards relegation and administration.

Moving to Celtic looked to provide a platform to kick his career on but he failed to make the bench in any matches last season before the shutdown in March.

League Two is quite a stepdown to take but if he can get a dozen games under his belt the next Celtic boss might have an interesting midfield option to look at when he takes charge of pre-season training.
