Celtic have joined the race to sign Barnsley defender Liam Lindsay, as per a report by the Daily Record.

The Scottish centre-back is a man in-demand after impressing for the Tykes in League One this season. Championship duo Leeds United and Aston have been linked with a summer move for him over the past couple of weeks.

Lindsay started his career in his native Scotland with Partick Thistle and rose through the youth ranks there. He broke into their first-team after enjoying loan spells at Scottish lower league sides Alloa Athletic and Airdrie as a youngster.

Lindsay went onto play 71 games for Partick in the Scottish Premier League before he was snapped up by Barnsley in 2017. He turned down a move to Oxford United in favour of a move to Yorkshire.

He couldn’t prevent the Tykes from relegation from the Championship in his debut season at Oakwell but has managed to help them be in contention for a return there now.

Barnsley are currently 2nd in the league and look in good shape to get promoted now. Daniel Stendel’s side will face a battle to hold onto Lindsay over the coming months regardless of what division they are in.

Celtic are the latest club to be credited with an interest in him. The Scottish Premiership champions are expected to be busy this summer as they look to retain their dominance above the border. Would Lindsay be up for returning to Scotland?
