Will the decision to release Dylan McGeouch come back to haunt Celtic?

Very little was thought of Celtic's decision to sell Dylan McGeouch in 2015.

The now-Hibernian maestro only made 20 Premiership appearances for the Hoops over a four-year period and it did not appear as if he had much of a future at the club.

Slowly but surely, the 25-year-old, who had a three-year stint at Rangers prior to joining Celtic, has been prompting questions over whether the Parkhead side were right to let him go, but a couple of dazzling performances on international duty for Scotland might embarrass the Bhoys.

McGeouch was one of five new faces called up to Alex McLeish's Scotland squad on Monday, with the Hibs star seeing his wonderful form this season finally rewarded.

The Scots face Costa Rica and Hungary in a couple of friendlies later this month and surely it wouldn't reflect well on Celtic if the lad who they deemed not good enough was to make an impact on the international scene.

McGeouch, sold during Ronny Deila's last season in Scotland, has been going from strength to strength since joining the Edinburgh club and maybe, just maybe, a couple of classy performances for his country would convince those on the green side of Glasgow that it may have been an error to let him go.
