Some Celtic supporters have given their thumbs up to a potential move for Hibs attacker Martin Boyle after reports crediting the Hoops with an interest in the player.

The Scotsman have reported that Head of Football Operations Nick Hammond was in attendance to watch the winger create two assists for his side at Easter Road, on their way to a 2-1 Wednesday win over Hamilton.

Celtic have already added Patryk Klimala and Ismaila Soro to their ranks this month, but with a bit of extra depth needed in the right winger position, a move for Boyle makes plenty of sense.

The player has been one of the better players in the Scottish Premiership this season, scoring six goals and assisting six more despite only joining in on the action in October.

 

His form has been so good recently that he won the December player of the month award.

The Australian international is unlikely to be the most exotic name linked with Celtic this month but is a known quantity to Neil Lennon and could do a job in Glasgow.

Lennon utilised the player often when the manager of Hibs.

How serious Celtic's interest in the 26-year-old isn't clear at this stage but with just over a week before the end of the transfer window, they'll need to move soon if Hammond and Lennon want their man.
