And in December, he revealed he would love to follow in his dad’s footsteps and play for the Bhoys in Green.

He said: “For me Celtic will always have a special place in my heart.

“Not that I’ve played there in that sense, but it was the first place where I saw football as a young kid going with my mother to see games when my father was playing.

“That’s where I have the biggest memories in my head.

“‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ you have all the scarves before the games and everything so of course it will always have a special place in my heart.

“But at the same time since my father is who he is at the club I think for me personally if I would ever have the chance to play there then I would like to establish myself even more, make my own name before I would play there if that chance would ever come up but of course it’s tempting.

“Not that they are interested in that sense but If I think about it to be able to play there would be a dream in that sense.

“For me my whole life has been about proving I’m a good player, that I’m my own person you know.”
