Celtic send Shane Duffy back to Brighton

Celtic have sent Shane Duffy back to parent club Brighton.

The Sun says the Republic of Ireland star has been sent back to Brighton after an injury ruled him out of the final two Scottish Premiership games against St Johnstone and Hibernian.

The 29-year-old arrived from Brighton last September on a season-long loan having been out of the picture at the Amex Stadium.

Defender Duffy cost a £2million loan fee and wages of £30,000-plus a week – totaling around £3m - and yet the Republic of Ireland's time at Parkhead was an unmitigated disaster.
