Former Celtic striker Tony Watt has admitted that he had a failed trial at Rangers before his move to their bitter rivals – but told that he only lasted one day at the Gers.
Watt broke through at Airdrie and the Gers had him at Auchenhowie for a closer look but decided not to make an offer for him.
“I went for one day but it didn’t work out. The head of youth liked me but the coach didn’t so it didn’t feel right,”
“I was as Airdrie at the time and they’d let players go on trial to get moves. I also went to Liverpool for a few days.”
Watt’s time at Celtic was hardly a success and the striker has since had spells with Standard Liege, Charlton Athletic, OH Leuven and St. Johnstone since leaving Parkhead.
Missing out on Watt isn’t really one that Gers fans will lose any sleep over given how his career has panned out since leaving Airdrie.
While he undoubtedly had potential, he never came close to living up to the hype that surrounded him.
