Burke joins Celtic on loan
Just now


ALBION have agreed a deal which will see forward Oliver Burke spend the rest of the season on loan at SPFL giants Celtic, subject to a medical.

Sporting and Technical Director Luke Dowling explained the Club have allowed the Scotland international to make a temporary switch to Celtic Park in the hope it will help galvanise his career.

Burke joined the Baggies from RB Leipzig in August 2017 but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by.

“To be fair to Oli, there have been a lot of changes at the Club since his arrival which have not helped him,” said Dowling.

“The opportunity to join a club of Celtic’s stature on loan was felt by everyone to be the best pathway to help develop his career.

“Oli liked what Celtic had to offer and he has obviously got the opportunity to play on a great stage which...

Damien Duff on his way to Paradise after accepting Celtic coaching role

Damien Duff will return to the UK next month to fill the vacant coaching role with Celtic's reserve team. The former Ireland winger has spent the last two seasons as head coach of Shamrock Rovers' U-15s.

Following Shaun Maloney's departure as Celtic reserve team assistant manager in September, Duff was encouraged to apply for the vacancy by first-team manager Brendan Rodgers.
The pair are familiar with each other from the time Rodgers was working in the academy at Chelsea, where Duff won two Premier League titles.
It is understood the Dubliner was preferred over four other candidates and was at Parkhead on Thursday to watch Celtic's Europa League tie against Red Bull Salzburg.
Duff will take up the position with the club's second string on a full-time...

The defender was sent out on loan in Rodgers' first season but has now become a key figure for his manager.

ByScott McDermott

French duo Moussa 
Dembele and Odsonne Edouard are grabbing the headlines in Brendan Rodgers’ newly-shaped Celtic.

But the Hoops gaffer expects 
Norwegian youngster Kristoffer Ajer to be a key figure in his team’s evolution this season.

It looks like the Treble winners will deploy a 3-5-2 system that allows 
Rodgers to play Dembele and Edouard together up front.

Even this early in the campaign it looks like an exciting prospect for Celtic fans with the front pair bang in form.

But the formation also means that Rodgers needs a ball-playing centre-back who can step out as the spare man to initiate attacks.

And in 20-year-old Ajer he feels he’s got one of the most prodigious talents around. The youngster was superb for Celtic in their Champions League 
qualifying win over Aleshkert.

And with Rodgers now short on defenders, after Jozo Simunovic’s red...
