CELTIC striker Michael Duffy, on loan at Alloa, snubbed a guard of honour for Championship winners “Rangers” at Ibrox on Saturday.

The player stood with his hands behind his back as his team-mates clapped their opponents onto the field ahead of the 1-1 draw.

Northern Irishman Duffy then went on to open the scoring when he pounced on a mistake by Andy Halliday, who also missed a penalty-kick.

The talented attacker joined the champions for £100,000 in February 2015 after three years with his hometown club Derry City.

He is still awaiting his debut for the Hoops and will return after his temporary deal expires in the summer. He has scored three goals in 33 appearances for Alloa.

While that is hardly impressive it is worth remembering that Alloa are bottom of the league and have been relegated, so would have been playing matches on the back foot for most of the season.

If you caught Duffy’s splendidly taken goal on Sportscene last night you could be forgiven for wondering if he could have done the same the week before in a Celtic side desperately short of a second striker to play alongside Leigh Griffiths.

Duffy will be back at Celtic in the summer and will likely feature in the Development Squad next season.
