Gary Mackay-Steven could have played his last game at Celtic, according to a report.
The Herald reports that although Mackay-Steven is currently in Celtic’s European squad of 22, with new arrival Olivier Ntcham set to be the 23rd, more arrivals are expected and Brendan Rodgers needs to make room.
The Herald claim that Aberdeen’s manager Derek McInnes wants Mackay-Steven and that the winger could be deemed surplus to requirements at Parkhead.
It is reported that Mackay-Steven would leave on a permanent deal as he is not part of Rodger’s future plans.
Rodgers is said to want a manageable squad – with no more than 23 players in – and that means fringe players will be axed.
Mackay-Steven, 26, has been at Celtic since February 2015 when he joined from Dundee United.
The winger didn’t make much of an impact on the Celtic first team last campaign, making just nine league appearances and not scoring a single goal.
However, it looks like he will maintain his career in the top flight of Scottish football.
