Stevie Frail says there is a lot more to come from Celtic youngster Michael Duffy

A Celtic coach has suggested one of the club's young players can go on to enjoy considerable success given his talent.

Celtic under-20 coach Stevie Frail has been speaking to the club’s official website about Michael Duffy’s progress since arriving back in January.

The attacking midfielder signed for Celtic from Derry City in the last transfer window, but despite making 63 appearances for his former side, Duffy is yet to feature for the Bhoys first-team.

Instead the 20-year-old has been looking to impress for Frail’s young Hoops and his recent two-goal haul against St Mirren was a step in the right direction.

Duffy scored again in a 4-1 victory against Kilmarnock and Frail reserved special praise for the player who can also play on the wing or up front if required.

“Michael Duffy had some chances and I just said to him he needs to be that little bit more ruthless in front of goal, but I think overall he can be really happy with his first few months at Celtic," Frail said.

“It was a big move for him and there was a lot of publicity surrounding it back in Ireland and he’s dealt with it well. There’s plenty more to come from him and I’m looking forward to coming back next season and working with him.”

Duffy is a current Northern Ireland under-21 international and his versatility and eye for goal mark him out as one to watch in the years to come.

Celtic have a number of exciting young players coming through the ranks, and while the likes of Kieran Tierney and Liam Henderson have already experienced first-team football, do not be surprised if Duffy joins them in that regard before too long.
