Celtic's Watt open to permanent Lierse move

After a difficult beginning at StandardLierse, Tony Watt is now considering a permanent move to the Belgian club.

The 20-year old striker joined Leirse from Celtic on a season-long loan in August but found regular game time hard to come by in the first few months.

However, the Scotland U21 international has netted seven goals in his past five Belgian Pro League outings and now feels very comfortable in the city of Lier.

"I haven't thought much about my immediate future," said Watt.

"I will have to talk to Celtic and wait to see what is decided, but I love Lierse and Belgium."

Watt's hot streak has coincided with de Pallieters winning four and drawing one of their past five league outings to shoot up to ninth on the table.
