Who Is Celtic’s New Signing? Everything You Need To Know About Him

PJ Crossan

BRendan Rodgers has his task cut-out in the coming games

Brendan Rodgers made yet another signing for his new club Celtic and continuing with the signing of young players with potential, the Northern Irish manager has now brought PJ Crossan to the Glasgow club.

The 17-year-old was signed from Dunfermline Athletic and was born in Motherwell. He started his youth career with Yett Farm Boys Club before moving to the Fife Elite Football Academy. He impressed during his spell at the academy and finally joined Dunfermline in 2014 and now has made his biggest move to date.

A bright young talent for the future

Being just 17, PJ has a long way to go before he can establish himself in a top club such as Celtic. Rodgers though is known for giving chances to a lot of youngsters, especially during his time at Liverpool where he did give Raheem Sterling and Jon Flanagan a decent run in the first team.

Crossan only has a couple of league appearances for Dunfermline and his signing for Celtic did come as a surprise. Crossan was offered a new deal by Dunfermline but he rejected that and now seems set for a chance to do well at Celtic Park, if he does live up to his expectations.

The 17-year-old isn’t expected to start too many games for the side and mainly plays as a forward. He is still a raw talent and it is a little surprising to see Celtic snap him up so quickly, probably to ensure he does not move to the other big club from Glasgow, Rangers.

Crossan would be under one of the best managers when it comes to dealing with young talent and he would hope that the boss does give him many chances to prove his ability on the pitch. Raheem Sterling did have a similar growth under Rodgers and ultimately excelled for the club, even though that relationship did not end well with Liverpool.

Rodgers though knows what is expected from the forward and he probably would send the youngster out on loan to gain a lot of experience and first team football. Crossan could end up playing for a Scottish Premiership side on loan and that would actually give the new manager a real chance to see what the player can do at the top level.

There still is time for Crossan to develop into the final product but it is tough to say just how well he would do for the Hoops this season.
