West Ham United's attacking prospect Marcus Browne is drawing the attention of Celtic and Rangers who are keen on his services, according to Goal. 

The 21-year-old was on loan at Oxford United last season, and he is now looking to take the next step in his career and he shouldn't hesitate in picking Celtic over Old Firm rivals Rangers. 


The Scottish Premiership champions will be gunning for their ninth straight title next season, and if he opts to switch to Parkhead instead of Ibrox, then he could find his name going into the history books. 


Added with that, given the high level of experience at Celtic, Browne would be able to take his game to the next level, both on and off the pitch, with the likes of Neil Lennon and Scott Brown being a great benchmark for the versatile attacker. 

Plus, he'll be playing alongside some of the best attacking talents in Scotland from Callum McGregor to the 2018/19 PFA Player of the Year, James Forrest. 

Browne can play a variety of attacking roles which will suit Celtic down to the ground from his ability to play in behind or drift out wide.
