Sources: Livingston and St Mirren in race for Celtic product Aaron Healy
Both Livingston and St Mirren are considering a move for Queen’s Park winger Aaron Healy this summer, sources have told Football Insider.
The Scottish Premiership duo have been impressed by the 20-year-old Celtic product, who has made an immediate impact at Queen’s Park since joining in January.
Livingston and St Mirren have been regularly scouting the winger this season and added him to their transfer shortlist with both teams looking to improve their attacking options for next season.
Healy joined Queen’s Park from junior club Arthurlie in January, signing a four-and-a-half-year contract with the club.
His form at Arthurlie was eye-catching, with the talented winger scoring 12 and assisting 11 in 27 games in the West of Scotland Football League.
Since his move to Queen’s Park, Healy has made eight senior appearances, scoring once in a 4-1 win over Hamilton Academical FC in February.

Healy has been limited to a part-time role so far by manager Owen Coyle, with the winger yet to play a full 90-minute match for the side.
But his involvement in matches has been growing and he’s tallied up 226 minutes of action following his 13-minute stint against Cove Rangers on Friday (10 March).
Healy progressed through Celtic’s academy during his childhood years but was released by the Glasgow giants aged 12.
St Mirren then picked Healy up and he joined their youth system, only to join Arthurlie before graduating for the Saints’ first team.
