Adam Idah finished his loan spell at Celtic in the best manner possible, by scoring a late winner against the Rangers in the Scottish Cup final to secure a double for Brendan Rodgers' side. The Irish international's time in Glasgow proved to be a major success and most fans would want to see it extended over the summer.

Celtic brought in Idah in the winter on loan until the end of the campaign. He arrived amid a lot of doubts as the youngster did not have an impressive goalscoring record at Norwich City.

He has proven the doubters wrong over his time at Celtic though. His Scottish Cup winner was his ninth goal for the Hoops and now, it remains to be seen whether the club are able to sign him on a permanent basis or not.

As reported by the Daily Record, Celtic are ready to give Brendan Rodgers what he’s after as they prepare to push for the signing of Idah. The club's hierarchy are committed to fulfilling the manager’s wishes.

Signing Idah would be a smart decision for Celtic. He has already proven that he can succeed at Parkhead, even if not played as a regular starter.

He brings something different to the table for Celtic. And while most consider Kyogo as the number one, Idah might be able to challenge him for that spot next season, if he does end up returning to Parkhead over the summer on a permanent basis.

It is expected to take a transfer fee north of £5 million to convince Norwich City to part ways with Idah on a permanent basis. Do not be surprised if the club are ready to shell that out though, as the Republic of Ireland international has further room to grow and improve moving forward.
