John Gallagher speaks highly of Celtic youngster Aidan Nesbitt.

John Gallagher has been singing the praises of Celtic youngster Aidan Nesbitt in The Daily Record.

Attacking midfielder Nesbitt is only 18 years of age and is rated as one of the most promising young players in the Celtic academy.

“He’s just got such great balance,” former Celtic Under-14 boss Gallagher told The Daily Record. “He’s an entertainer and he was at that age as well.”

“When you go to a first team ground you can find that some boys don’t handle it but you could just see that was his environment,” added Gallagher.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila recently told The Daily Record: “Aidan Nesbitt is one of the most talented players in Europe.”

Successful season

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 35 points from 14 matches.

The Bhoys are six points clear of second-place Heart of Midlothian and are set to win the league title in the Scottish top flight yet again.

The Hoops will return to league action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Kilmarnock at Celtic Park.

Celtic will head into the game on the back of a 4-1 victory over Ross County away from home in the Scottish Premiership.

The Glasgow-based outfit will be heavy favourites to win against Kilmarnock, and it will be a surprise if they slip up.
