Video: Celtic-bound Manny Perez provided an incredible assist in USL Championship

Celtic FC Highlights: Celtic-bound Manny Perez provided a brilliant assist for Noth Carolina.

The US defender was acquired by the Hoops in January and was instantly loaned to USL Championship.

Having played only six matches, the 20-year-old has already created a great impression on the fans.

In the 4-1 win against Hartford Athletic, Perez produced an incredible assist to set up Robert Kristo.

The weight of the pass, the technique and the curl was spot on.

Perez progressed through the ranks of the North Carolina Youth squad, where he demanded everyone’s attention with some eye-catching stats (6 goals and 9 assists in two years).

Future at Park Head

The Hoops are devoid of right-back options and Mikael Lustig remains the only choice, who is also catching up with age.

Jeremy Toljan, who was bought on loan from Borussia Dortmund has also failed to have a mark in Scotland.

Perez can play as a right-back and also as a wing-back and he certainly can ease the pressure of Neil Lennon at Park Head.

The Hoops are on the verge of becoming the Scottish Champions for the eighth time in a row. They will play Hearts in the Scottish Cup semi-final next month.
