James Keatings

Read all the news about James Keatings. James Keatings was born in Glasgow on 20 January 1992 (age 26).

A member of Celtic’s under-19 team Keatings was promoted to the first team on 10 November 2010, being named as a substitute for their game against Hibernian. He made one more appearance on the bench before suffering a cruciate knee injury in April, despite the knee injury he still finished the under-19’s top scorer with 25 goals. In June 2011, he was rewarded with a new three-year contract extending his stay until 2014.
