Lee O’Connor is Ian McCall’s next January signing after the right-back swapped Celtic Park for Firhill.

The Hoops starlet has joined Partick Thistle on a loan deal until the end of the season. He only joined Celtic in the summer following a spell with English giants Manchester United.

He’s now a Jag though and will perhaps fill a void that has been left by Osman Kakay. The QPR full-back was on loan in Maryhill earlier this term but has since left following the expiry of his loan deal.

O’Connor started out with Villa FC in his native Ireland. It caught the eye of Man United, who he would go on to represent at U18 and U23 level.

O’Connor’s next move was to Celtic during the summer. He signed a four-year deal with the Parkhead side, signing for an undisclosed fee.

His first game in red and yellow could be against Arbroath at the weekend. He is Thistle’s fourth new arrival of the window, having already signed Jamie Barjonas, Darian MacKinnon and Zak Rudden.
