Celtic should sign Dundee's Cammy Kerr

Celtic should try and sway Cammy Kerr to come to the club despite him signing a new deal with Dundee.

The Scottish right-back has impressed Dee fans since breaking into the first team.

The Hoops are in the market for full-backs as three from last season have ended their contracts.

He won’t cost mega bucks, but Kerr will do a job domestically as has been shown over the years.

The 23-year-old is highly rated and reportedly turned down Premiership moves to stay with Dundee.

He has signed a two-year contact, keeping him at the Championship side until 2021.

Nevertheless, Celtic’s pull will allow the club to potentially bring him to Glasgow.

Kerr is a hard as nails fullback who isn’t afraid to get stuck in.

He is very similar to Kieran Tierney who the Hoops faithful adore with his style of play.

Kerr isn’t towering at 5″11 but neither is Tierney or the majority of top full-backs in the game.

New manager James McPake has set a marker for the side by keeping Kerr, so maybe this could be the only stumbling block if Celtic become interested.

Celtic need to address right-back problem

Likewise, on the other side, the only option will be Tierney.

This should be the major target point for the recruitment team as we are just over a month from Champions League qualification matches.

Failure to address this issue could put the team in real early turmoil.

The blame will lay squarely at the board and management team for their naievty.
