Celtic set their sights on young Dubliner Darragh Markey


Celtic have today confirmed their interest in signing St Patrick’s Athletic forward Darragh Markey.

The 18 year old is set to travel to Glasgow this weekend for a bounce match on Sunday. The young lad who has attracted the interest of many clubs last year including a number of clubs in the Premier League could see himself at the home of the champions very soon.

With St Pat’s allowing him to travel its down to Markey now to impress manager Ronny Delia and his men in the hope of putting pen to paper in what can only be a dream move for the Irishman.

Markey who started off at Cherry Orchard, was signed by St. Pat’s during the 2014 season and was drafted into the senior squad at the start of last year.

Markey’s agent, Gerry Carlile, said: “He will go over for one day for a game. He will have a look at them and they will have a look at him. There are a lot of clubs interested in him. He is still a St Pat’s player but we will see what happens.”
