A number of players left Celtic in the recent January transfer window, whether that be on loan or on a permanent basis. Of course, the headline departure was that of David Turnbull, who joined Cardiff City on deadline day for a transfer fee believed to be around £2 million. Yosuke Ideguchi also joined Vissel Kobe permanently after an excellent temporary spell at Avispa Fukuoka.
There were quite a few who went out on loan in search of playing time. At one point, Adam Montgomery was on that list.
Montgomery had spent the first half of the season on loan at Fleetwood Town but did not feature much, largely due to fitness issues. He was brought back by Celtic and sent out on another loan spell, this time at Motherwell.
Montgomery ended up suffering an injury soon after joining Motherwell though and has since made his return to Celtic in order to undergo rehabilitation. And now, it looks like his long-term future at Parkhead is in doubt.
Celtic ready to let 21-year-old leave next summer
As reported by Football Insider, Montgomery is set to leave Celtic at the end of the season. According to their sources, it is looking “increasingly likely” that the Hoops will let him leave the club.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for Montgomery. When he first broke into the senior game, it had looked like he had a bright road ahead at Celtic.
It is easy to forget but he actually played quite a bit of football during the first half of Ange Postecoglou's debut campaign at Celtic. But since then, he has spent time out on loan at one club or another, and it has not really worked out for the youngster. Hopefully, he can put his fitness problems behind him and get his career back on track soon.
