Recent Celtic departures make sense for both the players and the club


Two players recently left Celtic, and the moves seem to be the correct ones for both the players and the club.

Jamie Lindsay, after spending last season on loan at Ross County, joined the Championship side on a permanent basis.

Whilst Sam Wardrop, who spent last season on loan with Dumbarton, joined Dundee United on a permanent deal.

The duo are better off moving on then spending their time in the Hoops development squad, as both players are now at an age where they will be wanting permanent first-team football.

Wardrop is 20-years-old and Lindsay is 22-years-old, and if you are going to make it with the Hoops you would have expected to have played some first-team football by that age.

It is very hard to break into the first-team of the Scottish Champions, and you need to be an exceptional talent like Kieran Tierney to be able to hold down a regular first-team place.

It wouldn’t be a shock if more players on the fringes of the first-team squad at Celtic Park left the club in the summer.

There will be players who are good enough for careers at the lower-levels of Scottish football – like Wardrop and Lindsay – who are better off moving to pastures new than not playing any regular football at all.
