Clyde have moved to bolster their squad with the signing of Celtic youngster Ewan Otoo on a loan deal until the end of the season.

A product of the Celtic academy who recently signed a new deal at Parkhead until 2024, the youngster can be deployed in defence or midfield. He will add options to Danny Lennon’s defensive plans ahead of a grueling run of fixtures for the Bully Wee.

Otoo joins the Clyde squad ahead of tonight’s Scottish Cup match with Highland League side Keith away from home. It’s a lengthy trip of 6 hours and 30 minutes approximately all-in for the Lanarkshire side.

They hit bottom of League One on Saturday as East Fife won 3-1 at Broadwood Stadium. It was the first of a mammoth 11 fixtures Clyde will face in a month now that lower league football has resumed following a shutdown in January to a rise in Covid-19 cases.

 

Lennon will hope his Celtic acquisition is up to speed as soon as possible heading into a busy period.
