Celtic midfielder Matt O'Riley has been tipped to earn the club a "record Scottish transfer fee".

The Dane put in a Player of the Match performance against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League as the Hoops drew 2-2 with the Spanish side.

He has six goals and four assists so far this season and transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reckons the 22-year-old has a high ceiling.

Writing on X, he said: "Celtic gem Matt O’Riley, MOTM on Wednesday; having a great season with 6 goals, 4 assists as CM.

"He also got Denmark NT call up. Celtic, in a strong position as they just renewed his contract one month ago — it’d be a Scottish record transfer fee for any club interested."

The current Scottish record transfer fee is £25million, a fee the Parkhead club have received for both Jota and Kieran Tierney in recent years.
