Celtic's Joe Chalmers reflects on great performance for the under-20s

One of Celtic's young prospects may not have much longer at the club.

Celtic’s young full-back Joe Chalmers has been speaking to the club’s television channel following his goal and assist for the Bhoys’ under-20 side.

The 21-year-old left-back played a significant role in the 2-0 victory against St Johnstone on Monday and he has since reflected on his performance in an interview with Celtic TV.

Stevie Frail’s side dominated possession and ran out comfortable winners, and after the game Chalmers said, “It was a succesful day. It’s not often I get on the score-sheet but the ball came off me for the penalty so I thought I would step up and take it.

“And I managed to get myself up the park which I like doing and (played) a good ball across the box and it was a good finish so it was a successful day for me.”

Chalmers is a versatile player who not only plays as a full-back but who can also do a job as a centre-back or a left-sided midfielder if required.

With his Celtic contract due to expire this summer, it remains to be seen how much longer he will be at the club but his latest performance will not have done his chances of a new deal any harm at all.

With only three senior appearances for the Bhoys under his belt thus far, and given the number of left-backs currently at the club, he may struggle to make much of an impact in his natural position.

But the fact that he can play elsewhere could yet see a new Celtic contract come his way in due course.
