Celtic target Alistair Johnson receives mixed reviews
The Scottish Sun reported on Wednesday that Celtic are seeking a deal for Montreal CF defender Alistair Johnston.
However, rumors are spreading quickly as Transfermarkt claim that negotiations are now at an advanced stage.
Johnston is now expected to join Glasgow in January in a deal that is heading in the right direction.
Johnston, 24, currently plays in Major League Soccer for CF Montreal and recorded four goals and four assists in 33 games last season.
A versatile player who can play at right centre-back in a back three, as a right-back or as a right-back, Johnston could become a replacement for Josip Juranovic at Celtic.
Johnston was in action for Canada at the World Cup on Wednesday night, and Ange Postecoglou was no doubt watching him closely.
Canada looked great but just couldn’t score against Belgium and ended up losing 1-0.
Johnston faced a real test against Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne, with mixed reviews emerging in Canada.
Sportsnet gave Johnston a mother 5/10, suggesting this was one of his most disappointing games in a Canadian jersey.
While they praised Johnston’s diagonal passes to get Canada going on offense, they felt exposed defensively.
However, the official website of the Canadian Premier League gave Johnston a rating of 7.5 out of 10, praising a “solid” performance.
They suggested that Johnston did not make a mistake and proved how important he is to this Canadian team.
Celtic are likely to see Johnston as a right-back rather than a right-centre back and will be encouraged by his distribution from the back against Premier League opposition.
