Celtic are interested in promising Irish youngster Darragh Markey.

The 18-year-old attacker, who plays for League of Ireland Premier Division side, St Patrick's Athletic, is travelling over to Glasgow for a bounce match on Sunday.

Markey's agent, Gerry Carlile, told Press Association Sport: "He will go over for one day for a game.

"He will have a look at them and they will have a look at him.

"There are a lot of clubs interested in him. He is still a St Pat's player but we will see what happens."
