Celtic will run the rule over Ali McCann today as the Glasgow side take another look at the talented St Johnstone midfielder (Sunday Post).

McCann was first scouted by Celtic in November while Neil Lennon was still in charge of the Glasgow club and could be in line for a summer transfer bid. The Northern Ireland international will be watched again this afternoon when St Johnstone face St Mirren in the second Scottish Cup semi-final.

Eddie Howe is set to become Celtic manager but at present there is nobody in the hotseat at Parkhead. But their scouting missions go on and the St Johnstone star will be one player subject to scrutiny, McCann a star in his 41 appearances this season.


St Johnstone will no doubt be bracing for interest in some of their key players after a stunning first season under Callum Davidson. They are on course for a remarkable double following their League Cup win in February, Davidson nominated for Manager of the Year after securing a top six spot in the Scottish Premiership too.
