It’s reported that Celtic had rocked up in Perth to watch the 20-year-old midfielder, who made his Northern Ireland debut last week, featuring against Austria and Romania.

The playmaker has been a revelation since breaking into the Saints first-team under Tommy Wright. Overall, he has made 55 Perthshire appearances on top of a loan move to Stranraer.

McCann’s debut came against Albion Rovers in the 2017/18 season and he hasn’t looked back since. Interest was always bound to appear and now it appears Celtic have took note.

St Johnstone are in action on Tuesday night against Hibs, looking to move into the top six with a victory at Easter Road.
