Celtic prospect wins player of the month twice in a row out on loan
Celtic prospect Barry Coffey continues to impress for Cork City in the Irish second-tier, picking up a player of the month award at the club for the second month in a row.
Coffey made four appearances for the club throughout September, scoring once and assisting once.
Working under former Celtic midfielder Colin Healy, Coffey has made a big impact since joining the club for their promotion push in July.
Sadly for City, that promotion bid has gone wayward and they won’t be taking part in play-offs coming up at the end of the summer/autumn campaign.
Coffey is due to head back to the Bhoys at the end of the 27-game campaign, with just three matches remaining.
However, the exercise will have been useful for the Celtic youngster and certainly preferable to hanging around the Bhoys without getting a game.
Coffey’s Celtic contract is due to expire in summer 2022 so he’ll be hoping to return and earn himself a new deal at the club, or figure his next best career move elsewhere.
The midfielder spent last season out on loan at Cliftonville, making 15 appearances in total.
Good luck to the Republic of Ireland youth international in the remaining games and on his return to the Celtic squad at Lennoxtown.
