Celtic youngster Bosun Lawal has signed a new three-year-deal at the club before joining former Hoops captain Scott Brown at Fleetwood Town on loan.

The Republic of Ireland international has captained the Celtic B team and been part of several match day squads with the first-team in the last couple of seasons.

He also made his first-team debut last season in a Scottish Cup clash against Greenock Morton and played in a number of pre-season games under Brendan Rodgers in Japan and Portugal.

After committing his future to the club until 2026 the 20-year-old joined up with Brown’s English League One side for the rest of this season.

Fellow Celtic youngster Adam Montgomery will also spend the season under the former Hoops skipper after joining in pre-season.

The Scottish champions confirmed the news on Thursday.

A statement released on their website said: “Celtic are delighted to announce that Bosun Lawal has signed a contract extension until the summer of 2026.

“After putting pen to paper, the defender will now go on a season-long loan to English League One side, Fleetwood Town, managed by former Celtic captain Scott Brown.”
