Celtic loan youngster Lee O’Connor has the chance to take part in a massive English League Two play-off final at Wembley later this month.
He was part of the Tranmere Rovers team that drew 0-0 with Colchester today, finalising their seventh position in the table.
It means they’ll play third-placed Morecambe over two legs in the play-off semi-final.
The winners of that tie are currently scheduled to face-off against Forest Green or Newport County at the English national stadium on Monday May 31st.
Rovers fans aren’t particularly happy right now given recent form. Looking at their social media accounts, there’s serious anger aimed at manager Keith Hill.
That’s obviously not the ideal situation for them heading into the most important games of the season.
It would be a great story if O’Connor made to Wembley. He, unluckily, missed out on Tranmere’s EFL Trophy final against Sunderland earlier this season due to a training ground injury.
Lee O’Connor has big opportunity to make it at Celtic
Regardless of their play-off outcome, he has had a productive season out on loan from Celtic, making 40 appearances in all competitions.
The former Manchester United youngster has been primarily used at right-back but has also featured in defensive midfield and at centre-half.
With Celtic desperate for right-back options heading into next season, he’ll be hoping to make the grade under a new Celtic manager.
It’s pleasing to know he has at least had regular and competitive football over the last 12 months. Hopefully, it has seriously aided his development.
Highly rated within the Irish international set-up, he’s definitely one to watch heading into the new era.
