Celtic star Oliver Burke told to stay at Parkhead for ODD reason – some fans will disagree

Burke made the temporary switch to Celtic in January and is due to return to his parent club West Brom at the end of the season.

The 21-year-old made only three Championship appearances before travelling to Scotland, where he has settled into life perfectly at Parkhead.

Four goals and one assist in nine league appearances reflect a good start in Glasgow, where Burke has a terrific chance of winning the league and Scottish Cup.

He remains Scotland’s most expensive player in history following his £15million move from RB Leipzig to the Baggies in 2017, but still has a lot of developing to do.

As a result, former Liverpool and Scotland midfielder Don Hutchison believes Burke should bide his time at Celtic – but because he sees the 49-time Scottish champions as a breeding ground for up-and-coming players, comments which may infuriate some Hoops fans given their success down the years.

“There’s no need for Ollie Burke to move away from Celtic,” Hutchison told Radio 5 live.

“At the present time, the form he has been in [is] not amazing form but better form from where he was a year ago.

“He probably wouldn’t get in most Premier League sides at the moment, not starting anyway.

“So this is no disrespect to Celtic but it’s a great place for Ollie Burke to try and improve, play well, have an atmosphere and a crowd that are going to drive him on.

“In Neil Lennon, or whoever it may be in the summer, [he has a coach] that will drive him on to the next level.

“If I was giving Ollie Burke advice, I’d say stay at Celtic as long as you can.

“That is the place for you to learn your trade and get yourself to a high level.”
