Player stats

A youth product of Patrick Thistle, Lindsay has made more than 60 appearances for the club’s senior team.

The 23-year-old then joined the League One side Barnsley in 2017 after refusing a speculated move to Oxford United.

The centre-back has been a regular for the Tykes making more than 80 appearances.

As far as this season is concerned, Lindsay has been pivotal in leading his side to second in the table with more than 30 appearances under his belt.

Why the Hoops should pursue?

The Hoops are currently probing for the defenders with the prospective departure of Dedryck Boyata and Filip Benkovic at the end  of this season

Given that the Scots defender had previously played for the Jags, Alloa Atheltic and Airdrieonians, he would certainly embrace the playing style of the Hoops.

Neil Lennon, the new caretaker manager, has led the Hoops to three big wins since taking the helm.
