CELTIC are keeping tabs on Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo.

Top scout Craig Strachan, son of former Hoops manager Gordon, watched the London-born 22-year-old attacker during his team’s 2-1 victory over Reading during the week.
Semenyo netted one of the goals and caught the eye with a powerhouse performance. He has claimed five strikes and six assists in an impressive season for the Championship club.

Nottingham Forest were out of luck with a deadline-day bid for the forward last month, according to a report in Bristol World.

The exciting hitman, who won the division’s January Player of the Month award, has been attracting attention from a host of clubs.

Semenyo is under contract until June next year and City have told interested teams to expect to shell out big money for their hottest property.

Meanwhile, Celtic have loaned former Southampton forward Jonathan Afolabi to Airdrie for the remainder of the campaign.

The Dublin-born 22-year-old, who joined the Hoops in August 2019, was at Ayr United for the first part of the season and has also had temporary spells at Dunfermline and Dundee.

Boss Ange Postecoglou is keen for the youngster to get some game time and Afolabi could make his debut this afternoon in the home League One game against Montrose.
