Ex-Rangers starlet Ciaran Dickson scores on Celtic B debut
Ciaran Dickson, who was on the books of Rangers until this summer, scored a debut goal for Celtic’s B team against Morton today (Saturday).
Gers tied the player down to a new three-year deal in January and made a rather surprising decision to release the player in this transfer window.
He was then snapped up by Celtic and took little time to make his mark at his new club, which would undoubtedly rub certain people at the Ibrox the wrong way.
The 19-year-old made just one appearance for the Gers senior team, but was viewed as one of the academy’s hot prospects.
He came through the ranks at the club and played a significant role in guiding them to winning the 2018 Glasgow Cup.
Steven Gerrard also was understood to be a huge admirer of the midfielder.
Per the Scottish Sun, he said of the 19-year-old, “I thought young Dickson was terrific. He played with energy, personality and character. He’s the type who will never let me down.
“He’s probably had a similar upbringing to myself in that he knows what it means to represent Rangers and the shirt.”
However, whatever affinity some at the club may have had for him probably ended in the past few days as he was seen wearing a Celtic jersey at Parkhead recently and is now scoring goals for them as well, albeit for the B team.
The club may have been too harsh in offloading Dickson this summer and will regret it if he keeps performing like he did today.
He can go on to become a regular at Celtic in the coming years and possibly terrify their cross-town Glasgow rivals in their title quests.
