Liverpool or Celtic for Jamie Hamilton?

In our view, if both Liverpool and Celtic make an offer for Hamilton, then it is likely that he will choose the Reds.

As reported by TEAMtalk, the Scottish teenager is out of contract at Hamilton at the end of the season.

Liverpool are a wealthy club who would be very tempting to Hamilton.

Yes, Celtic are big as well, but the chance to play in the Premier League and in the Champions League on a regular could be very tempting for Hamilton.

Hamilton has made 15 starts and one substitute appearance in the Scottish Championship so far this season, scoring two goals in the process.
