Mark Schwarzer believes that Daniel Arzani is best served away from Celtic.

The Australian international thinks his fellow countryman isn’t ready for the Scottish champions.

Arzani joined The Bhoys on-loan last season but has only made a brief appearance. The promising youngster got injured right away which is keeping him from future showings.

Niggling injuries is stopping the young Australian from fulfilling his promising career.

Now a veteran, Schwarzer reiterates his support for Arzani but notes where he needs improvement.

He told Goal: “The Celtic move is one which I am not sure is the best move for him just yet. But it is about playing games and continuing to develop.

“His injury came at the very worst time as he just arrived and got his first opportunity to play from the start. It was not only unfortunate for his career at Celtic but also for Australia.”

The Hoops are Arzani’s employers until the end of the season.

A two year loan deal was agreed by Brendan Rodgers when the Hoops were looking at Patrick Roberts replacements.

The Hoops watched all the YouTube videos before signing him on loan from Manchester City. A bright player who can turn on a spark and take many players on before a scoring finish.

He said: “He is a huge talent. He is very unpredictable. We haven’t had a player like that for a very long time.

“He has no fear on the ball. He is prepared to take players on. Drop a shoulder number of times and use a burst of pace.”

It’s unknown when Arzani will be back on the pitch but fans will hope it’s as soon as possible. Hopefully he isn’t another young talent who is going to fall by the wayside due to injuries.
