Report: Dylan McGeouch set for Celtic stay

Celtic U-20s

Dylan McGeouch, who rejected a contract offer from Rangers back in 2011, is reportedly set to stay at Celtic.

Dylan McGeouch will remain at Celtic for the 2015-16 campaign, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported by the British newspaper the Scottish Premiership champions have taken up the option to extend the contract of the attacking midfielder for another year.

The 22-year-old played on loan for Scottish Championship side Hibernian during the 2014-15 campaign, and he seems to have impressed the Bhoys bosses.

McGeouch will now remain at Celtic and will be aiming to earn a regular place in Ronny Deila’s starting line-up next season.

Taking chances

McGeouch is a talented young attacking midfielder who rejected a chance to sign a five-year contract with Rangers in 2011, as reported by The Daily Record at the time.

The young Scot’s progress over the past few years has not been as he would have expected, but he showed last season during his loan spell at Hibernian that he has the potential to make it big at Celtic.

Deila has shown during his time at Celtic that he is open to giving young players with potential chances, and McGeouch will need to make the most of the opportunities he will get.
