And Celtic have let the Northern Irishman - who stands at 6'6 - leave as an emergency signing for the Dee.

The 21-year-old has had loan spells at Partick Thistle and Falkirk in recent years, and fans of the second-tier club have offered a mixed reaction to his signing.

It makes perfect sense for the Bhoys to loan him out.

Celtic have Fraser Forster, Craig Gordon and Scott Bain ahead of him in the pecking order, meaning that he wouldn't have kicked a ball under Neil Lennon this season barring a catastrophic injury crisis.

And at his age, he needs to play, so it's much better for his development to play in the Championship than train with Lennon's senior side everyday, only to not actually get game time.
