New Celtic head of recruitment Lee Congerton has told the club's TV channel that Scotland will feature at the heart of his plans.

The following young stars could be ideal for the Bhoys:

John Souttar (Hearts)

Reports of interest in Celtic centre-backs Jozo Simunovic and Erik Sviatchenko have rumbled on throughout the campaign and should either player be prised away from Parkhead this summer, Souttar could be the perfect candidate to fill their boots. The stylish 20-year-old is currently nursing an Achilles injury, but should be back for the start of next season.

Jamie Walker (Hearts)

With Patrick Roberts due back at Manchester City next season, Celtic could be in the market for a new wide man this summer. Other than the Bhoys' own Scott Sinclair, there have been none better in Scottish football this season than Walker, who's scored 15 goals and created another seven in all competitions.

Jason Cummings (Hibernian)

Having scored 52 goals in 90 games at Championship level, Cummings is long overdue another crack at the top flight. The 21-year-old looks to be on his way there next season, with Neil Lennon's side atop the second tier. Assuming Cummings continues his form at a higher level, Celtic would be wise to pounce if one of Moussa Dembele or Leigh Griffiths leaves.
