Premiership regular has little to no chance of making the grade at Celtic


It probably slipped people’s attention that a Celtic player was a mainstay for a side in the Scottish Premiership last season.

22-year-old midfielder Jamie Lindsay played on loan 32 times for Ross County, but was unable to prevent from finishing bottom of the Scottish Premiership table and relegation to the Championship.

The fact that he was able to hold down a place in a Premiership team shows that he must have talent, but unfortunately for him that probably won’t ever be displayed at Celtic Park.

Lindsay has previously went out on loan to the likes of Dumbarton and Morton, and as yet has not made a full first-team appearance for the Bhoys.

He is slightly unfortunate to be a defensive midfielder, which is the strongest area of the Hoops side, with the likes of Eboue Kouassi, Scott Brown, Nir Bitton and Olivier Ntcham all competing for a place in the side.

To be honest, if Lindsay was going to make the breakthrough he would have by now, as 22-year-old is suddenly quite old by footballing standards.

He seems unlikely to follow in the footsteps of Kristoffer Ajer, who after a solid loan spell at Kilmarnock now finds himself a first-team regular.

The fact that Lindsay’s contract runs out at the end of the season is perhaps the most ominous sign that the player will be moving on, and it wouldn’t be a shock if the Hoops announced that he was being released.

It is odd that so little has been said about his performances, but he can still go on to have a solid career, perhaps in the lower half of the Premiership or in the Championship.
