TONY WATT, who scored Celtic’s memorable winner over Barcelona in 2012, is on his way from Dundee United.

The 29-year-old striker was left out of Liam Fox’s match day squad for his side’s 2-0 loss to the champions at Tannadice on Sunday.

Watt has almost certainly kicked his last ball for the Tayside outfit and KV Oostende have made a loan offer for the one-time Scotland international, according to The Scotsman.

HOOP HOOP HOORAY…Tony Watt turns away in delight after leaving keeper Victor Valdes helpless.

The Belgians already have Hoops’ right-back Osaze Urhoghide at the club until the end of the season and also had Jack Hendry on a similar deal with the Parkhead men before selling him onto Club Brugge in the summer of 2021.

St Mirren are also interested with the Paisley gaffer Stephen Robinson previously working with Watt at Motherwell.

Watt was tipped for massive things at the Hoops following his unforgettable Champions League goal in Neil Lennon side’s 2-1 victory over Lionel Messi and Co at a rocking Parkhead on November 7 2012.

However, it just didn’t work out for the forward and the end was in sight when he was loaned to SK Lierse a year later before Ronny Deila sold him for a reported £1.2million deal to Standard Liege in July 2014.

Watt has had a nomadic career after leaving the Hoops and, as well as Well and United, had stints at Charlton, OH Leuven and CSKA Sofia and loan spells at Cardiff City, Blackburn Rovers and Hearts.
