Celtic to hook into Australia's talent pool

Scottish giants Celtic FC have targeted Australia as a place to identify talent with a series of seminars taking place later in May.

The Hoops, who finished second to Glasgow rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premier League this season, will hold seminars in Sydney, working with the AESFA (Australian Elite Soccer - Football Academy) in late May and early July.

Greig Robertson, International Academy Development Officer at Celtic told au.fourfourtwo.com that the trip will be put to use to look at Australian talent as well as grow the Celtic brand Down Under.

"Club partnerships around the world are important for talent identification and we are always looking out for that golden nugget who could be the next Scott McDonald," said Robertson.

"It really gives us a wonderful opportunity to create a global network of coaches to indentify players and we want coaches and players to have unique access to Celtic through our international academy program.

"Our academy staff are fed to these partner clubs around the world and we deliver coach education to the club. We will work with the club's coaches and players, with some of them given the opportunity to come along to Glasgow to see our youth academy."
