CELTIC winger Mikey Johnston could be headed for a loan move to Aberdeen. 

It's said that the 22-year-old is on Stephen Glass' January shortlist, as the Dons aim to bolster their attacking options.

Aberdeen skipper Scott Brown is a big admirer of the tricky wide man. 

And the Daily Record say that the veteran midfielder has offered a glowing reference for Johnston.

Aberdeen want to add more pace into their final third and Johnston is viewed as a potential solution.

However, the report states that Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou may be reluctant to sanction a departure as he contends with injury issues.

Aberdeen are also keeping a keen eye on Ryan Broom of Peterborough, who is currently on loan at Plymouth.
