Paul Kennedy has been backed to make a big difference in a ‘formidable’ Clyde side by manager Danny Lennon after his exit from Celtic.

Kennedy rose through the ranks at Celtic and captained the Parkhead side during the 2019 Scottish Youth Cup final against Rangers. He joins cinch League One club Clyde on a two-year deal after a period on trial at the Broadwood side. The 20-year-old left Celtic earlier this summer.

Lennon said: “Since he has arrived here, Paul has shown all the qualities we need in a dynamic midfield player. He has clearly been coached well, and you can see this reflected in his technical ability, his vision for a pass, his awareness of everyone around him and his execution of the instructions given to him.

“He has played a strong role in our pre-season games, in and out of possession. We believe he will make a significant contribution in a formidable Clyde team, ready to more than match the challenges ahead, in what is shaping up to be a very competitive and exciting season.”
