Derby County defender Max Lowe is still attracting interest from Scottish giants Celtic according to Daily Record.

Full back Kieran Tierney left Celtic to join Arsenal and they are looking for a replacement for him with Lowe being identified as one of their main targets.

The left back requires filling by the Scottish side and they have already Celtic had Kilmarnock defender Greg Taylor scouted as another option.

While the transfer window for Premier League and Championship clubs closed on Thursday, Scottish sides can still complete business until September 2nd.

Celtic have signed Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo from Rapid Vienna for £3million butter reportedly after another left-back for added competition within their defensive ranks.

Lowe spent the vast majority of last season in the Scottish Premiership with Aberdeen, making 42 appearances in all competitions highlighting the fact that he deemed surplus to requirements at Pride Park.

Neil Lennon’s side accrued £25million from Arsenal for the sale of Tierney and are now looking to use some of that transfer figure to bring in reinforcements.

Lowe would be needed in European football with his defensive solidity being more impressive than that of Bolingoli-Mbombo but he isn’t the defensive left back that Lennon could really need whereas Taylor very much is and with Lowe allegedly more expensive, the Kilmarnock man may be the preferred option.

With Championship sides now not able to bring in any more players it is yet to be seen if Phillip Cocu is willing to let Lowe leave without being able to replace him.
