Celtic FC News: Celtic linked Lawrence Shankland continues to impress for Ayr United

Celtic FC News: Celtic transfer target Lawrence Shankland, continued his goal scoring form for Ayr United.

The Scots striker scored a penalty against Queen of the South, which enabled his side to secure a good win.


Incredible goal scoring season

The 23-year-old  has turned out to be one of the hottest prospects in Scottish Championship this season.

His numbers are extravagant, as he has netted 32 goals and set up 6 more, across all competitions.

A Queen’s Park youth product, Shankland has enjoyed a free-flowing career ,as he was often loaned to numerous clubs that include St. Mirren, Green Rock Morton and Dunfermline Atletic.

But he managed to find his niche at the Honest men, once he signed for them in 2017.

Interest from other clubs

Alongside the Hoops,  the Scots striker was wanted by a swarm of clubs that include Old Firm rivals Rangers, and Hibernian. (h/t The Daily Record UK )

The former Aberdeen player’s contract is due to expire this season.

Should Celtic consider the signing of Shankland?

The Hoops will benefit greatly if they acquire the services of the youngster.

He can play on either wing and can sometimes drop a little deeper for playmaking purposes.

These attributes should definitely suit the Bhoys, who always rely on the 4-2-3-1 formation.

Shankland could be the solution for Neil Lennon who had earlier opined about his side’s lack of attacking prowess.

He can team up with James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard, to form a strong trio.

Instead of looking away from home, the Celts can look up one of the promising talents from their own country.

Maryan Shved would be an obstacle to any deal, who is set to return to Park Head after an excellent loan spell in Ukraine.

Shved’s numbers are also comparable to Shankland’s, who won the Ukranian player award last month while representing Karpaty Lviv.
