Celtic boss Strachan explains Hutchison signing

Celtic boss Gordon Strachan has explained why he chose to bring forward his deal for Middlesbrough striker Ben Hutchison.

Strachan explained he'd brought in Hutchinson, who had originally signed a pre-contract, because he didn't want the kid to feel awkward about staying at Boro when he was committed to moving north in the summer.

He said: "Sometimes it can be uncomfortable, especially for a younger player, so I thought it would be better to bring him in now."
