Adam Idah vs Lawrence Shankland Celtic transfer question posed as Hoops hero looks to summer window

Former Celtic midfielder Peter Grant has been put on the spot over who he'd rather see at Celtic between Adam Idah and Lawrence Shankand.

Idah is currently on loan at the Hoops and has impressed with eight goals in fifteen appearances, and that has been with some of them as a sub and while playing second fiddle to Kyogo. There has been plenty of talk over whether it could be made permanent and the player himself dropped a hint last night.

Meanwhile, Shankland hit his 30th Hearts goal of the season in their draw against St Mirren as he made it two sensational campaigns back-to-back in maroon. He has often been mooted as someone Celtic and Rangers could look at and his future remains up in the air with a year left to go on his contract and previous offers going unsigned.

Brendan Rodgers will likely to be either looking to made Idah's stay permanent or bringing in an alternative. And Grant has been put in his shoes and asked to pick who he would prefer.

He told Go Radio: "It's a really good question. I really like Lawrence. Probably I'm looking at the age now and I'm looking at what Celtic do now, I'd probably go for Idah."

Craig Moore chipped in to say that would fit the Hoops' transfer model better and Grant continued: "Yeah. There's more value, I don't mean short-term value because we know he (Shankland) puts the ball in the back of he net. I've been really impressed with Idah. I said at the time when he came, I thought Oh was slightly still in front of him but I the think I really liked about him at Norwich was, as soon as he lets the ball off he gets between the sticks. He's hungry to score a goal.

"Last night he terrorised Kilmarnock. He's playing with a passion and a commitment that shows you he'd like to be part of it. But they (Norwich) are not stupid either - they'll know that value has gone up. And he will be on decent money. Other Championship clubs down there would maybe pay more than Celtic will..

"They were saying 'why have we only got Adam Idah in? Who's Adam Idah? But he's produced."
