Neil Warnock had been linked with a move to Scottish football for a long time and he finally got a taste of it this season. It would be safe to say that the veteran English manager did not enjoy a lot of success on the pitch during his short spell at Aberdeen. But he seems to believe that one of the players he managed at Pittodrie Stadium is good enough to fit in at both Celtic and the Rangers.

The player in question is none other than Bojan Miovski. The North Macedonian international was heavily linked with a move to Celtic in the winter, when they needed to sign a striker.

It was believed that it would take a transfer fee around £5 million, which would be a record for a move between two Scottish clubs, for Celtic to sign Miovski from Aberdeen. Ultimately, they did not, bringing in Adam Idah on loan from Norwich City instead.

It did not take long for the club to regret that decision. Miovski scored against Celtic when the two sides met in February and it ended in a 1-1 draw, as the Hoops dropped two valuable points.

It is very clear that Warnock was impressed with what he saw from Miovski. As reported by 67 Hail Hail, the manager said when asked about the striker on talkSPORT:

"I think obviously the top two (Celtic and Rangers), he would fit in with them as well because he works hard.

“He did about 12k running when we played Rangers, he worked his socks off and scored a goal, but he’s a good finisher and I think it’s done him a world of good going to Aberdeen. It’s a good club."

Miovski has been in the form of his life since joining Aberdeen in the summer of 2022. He has scored 41 goals for the club in total since then, an exceptional return while playing for a team who have struggled quite a bit in recent times and constantly changed managers.

Celtic could still do with another striker. With the future of Idah uncertain, it would not be a surprise if they return for Miovski in the summer.
