Alloa have signed young Celtic striker PJ Crossan on loan until January, after he impressed boss Jim Goodwin.

The 18-year-old scored one and made another for Celtic’s Under 20s against Falkirk on Tuesday night.

Goodwin told the club’s website, “PJ is a young talented striker who Celtic paid a lot of money to Dunfermline Athletic last season on a three-year contract.

“He is a player with huge potential, and he gives us a bit of pace in behind, he runs his socks off, works hard and has an eye for a goal.

“He has scored plenty goals for Celtic in the Development League most recently in 4-0 victory over Falkirk on Tuesday night when he scored the third goal and set up the fourth, but now his need is first team football and to start playing in senior football games.

“We are delighted to give him that opportunity, he is not guaranteed to go straight into the team, he will need to work hard here to get into the team.

“He is different to the other boys we have, he is a player I have had an eye on for a while and he stood out when we played at Lennoxtown in a pre season friendly; he was certainly a handful that day”.
