CELTIC are pondering a move for Blackburn Rovers winger Connor Mahoney.

Nottingham Forest and Wolves have also expressed an interest in the 20-year-old attacker who is out of contract at the Ewood Park outfit as they prepare for life who will be England’s third tier next season.

Rovers will be due a compensation fee as he is under 24 and they are pushing to take any transfer to a tribunal to get their valuation of the former England Under-18 international.

Mahoney is keen to leave and the Hoops realise they can sign him for less owing to cross-border compensation which is something Brendan Rodgers utilised last summer when he signed Moussa Dembele from Fulham for a cut-price £500,000.

Former Parkhead gaffer Tony Mowbray is resigned to losing Mahoney following their relegation to League One, with the player impressing since joining the club from Accrington Stanley in December 2013.

Mahoney made 21 appearances last season.
