Alistair Johnston breaks Celtic transfer silence as ambitious World Cup star shares lofty career ambition

Alistair Johnston, as requested, has opened the door to a switch to Celtic as the ambitious right-back is determined to test himself in Europe.

The 24-year-old is starring for Canada at the World Cup and the Premier League champions are understood to be in talks over a potential deal to land the Montreal Impact star. It comes with increasing speculation about the future of Josip Juranović. The Croatia international has been seen by a host of clubs and could exit in January after talks over a new Parkhead deal.

Ange Postecoglou has stressed the need for Celtic to be agile in the transfer market and Johnston appears to be the designated replacement should Joranović move. And the player himself is full of faith that he is ready to take the next step in his football career. Speaking amid growing interest, he said: “There’s a lot more I can say now but if a chance arises, sure. I’m really happy in Montreal and we’ve got something great, but at the same time I want to test myself, I want to see how far I can go.”

“This is something that is in our DNA for all athletes. You want to be competitive and push yourself to play against the best and see how high you can go. We never want to look back on our careers and have a ‘what if?’ question. I have nightmares thinking about that.

“I want to push the boundaries of what is physically capable for me. If that means going abroad, trying to figure out what kind of level I can play at, then so be it. We’ll see how the World Cup goes and we’ll see what happens next.”
