Clyde manager Danny Lennon has praised Celtic loanee Ewan Otoo after the youngster’s initial impact at the Bully Wee.

The League One club will play their third game since Monday when they face Ayr United in the Scottish Cup third round on Saturday. Otoo has won Man of the Match awards since his arrival from Celtic last month, during what has been a hectic schedule.

Lennon has hailed the Celtic teenager (Daily Record): “Ewan is a young boy with fantastic energy, he is trying to make his mark in the game at that level, so he will certainly get the experience of that. Like anything, I believe when you are given that access, the more that you go and play at that level, the quicker these boys learn.

“What he does have is a terrific attitude, for a very young boy he’s years ahead in terms of maturation, and is a very strong, powerful boy. He’ll come in there and certainly aid us in an area that has been a bit of an Achilles heel for us, not just this season but for a few.

 

“This week is coming into a very hectic schedule and we are starting to get stretched a bit. There’s a bit more aches and pains, a bit longer now to recover, with the games coming as fast as they are, so this is where the strength and perhaps the opportunity will arise for one of these youngsters to get an opportunity.”
