LIAM SCALES has pledged his future to Celtic by signing a bumper new four-year deal.

And, at the same time, the versatile Republic of Ireland international defender has vowed to play his part in making sure there is no interruption in the consistent flow of silverware into the Parkhead trophy room.

Twenty-five-year-old Scales is poised to face Hearts in the east end of Glasgow tomorrow afternoon as the champions embark upon a four-game crusade towards a third successive title – and twelfth in 13 years.

In quick succession, Brendan Rodgers’ men will then take on Rangers at the same venue, Kilmarnock at Rugby Park and St Mirren in Paradise on the last day of the 2023/24 Premiership campaign on Saturday May 18.

The curtain is due to come down a week later in the Scottish Cup Final against Philippe Clement’s Ibrox outfit on the iconic date of May 25.

Scales, speaking to the club website, said: “I am delighted to agree this new contract and commit my future to Celtic.

“I have really enjoyed working under the gaffer and with such a great group of players this year. I look forward to doing so again in the coming seasons.

“I love being part of this great club and I want to do all I can to contribute to Celtic and bring our fans as much success as we can.”

Scales, who joined the Ange Postecoglou revolution when he signed from Shamrock Rovers in August 2021, has become a pivotal figure in Rodgers’ first team and has clocked up 40 appearances across all competitions this term.
