The Irish prospect is currently making huge waves as a swarm of English clubs as well as Old Firm rivals Rangers are battling for his signature.
Being just 19, Connell broke into the main team of the trotters this season with 10 appearances. The fans were able to savour a glimpse of his talent.
And his breakout campaign helped him earn a call up for Republic of Ireland’s U-19 side.
A defensive midfielder by tradition, Connell is also adept at playing as a full back and as a wide midfielder.
Connell, a worthy successor of Scott Brown?
And it is really absurd to measure the achievements and greatness of the Hoops captain Scott Brown as he still continues to inspire his side despite being 34.
However, with the clock is ticking down for the Scottish veteran, the Celts are required to find his successor, who can commit to the club’s long-term future.
