Livingston goalkeeper and former Rangers Academy prospect Liam Kelly has been linked with a move to rivals Celtic this summer.
The talented goalkeeper has enjoyed a fantastic season with Livingston and was always bound to attract transfer interest going into the summer.
The Scottish Sun is reporting that Celtic are interested. They also suggest German giants Hamburg are ready to pounce on the player, who they claim will only cost £50k.

The report also claims a host of English clubs are monitoring the player. It claims the likes of Ipswich, Wigan, Barnsley and Reading are all interested.
The report goes on to explain that Liam Kelly had a clause inserted when he signed a two year deal with Livingston at the start of the season which allows him to leave for a knockdown price.

 

First team football the priority for Liam Kelly

The goalkeeper moved on from Rangers in search of first-team football. It proved to be the right move for Kelly and he has flourished at the Tony Macaroni Arena, earning 14 clean sheets in 33 Scottish Premiership matches.
Kelly, 23, is unlikely to accept being an understudy in his next move. As a result, it’s likely he will be put off a move to Celtic Park.
Rangers were recently rebuffed in their approach for another Scottish Premiership goalkeeper in Killie’s Daniel Bachmann. The big Austrian claimed Rangers approached him, but he turned down a move to fight for a place at Premier League Watford [originally Scottish Sun].

The story suggested Rangers were interested in strengthening between the sticks. On first glance, a return for Liam Kelly appears a solid solution to our issues with strength and depth in goal.
But it’s unlikely we can offer the talented shot-stopper the game time he needs to progress to the next level.
For these reasons, it’s also unlikely we’ll see the former Gers Academy graduate turn out for Celtic either. That’s before you consider he was a former Rangers youth player.
