Celtic striker moves out

Jonathan Afolabi has joined Ayr United on a season long loan.

The striker joined Celtic in 2019 after being released by Southampton but has yet to make a match-day squad.

Last season he was sent out on loan to Dundee where he started four matches in the Championship with a further 15 appearances coming off the bench.

Afolabi was in the Celtic squad that played in three pre-season friendlies in Wales but hasn’t been involved since despite the issues involving Leigh Griffiths and Albian Ajeti.

Playing in the Lowland League with Celtic Colts would do little for his development, with two years left on his hoops contract he needs to make a big impact at Somerset Park if he is to stand any chance of making the breakthrough at Celtic.

Ayr open their Championship campaign tonight with a trip to Rugby Park to take on Kilmarnock.
