Joe Thomson has made a big impact at Celtic since breaking through into Stevie Frail’s Development Squad. The teenager can play across the midfield, with his attacking instincts bringing him a regular goal return, including strikes in the UEFA Youth League. Having made his debut for the first team during a friendly with Villarreal, Thomson was named in Ronny Deila’s squads to face both Kilmarnock and Hamilton in the SPFL Scottish Premiership.
Thomson would then go on to score his first senior goal for the club during a mid-season friendly in the Maspalomas International Cup, when, having come on as a substitute, he struck against Sparta Prague. Thomson’s progress was again noted when he was handed his first competitive appearance for the Celtic first team, coming on as a substitute during the Hoops’ 3-1 win over Dundee United at Tannadice.
