DERRY CITY striker Michael Duffy reckons there is no need for a third trial at Celtic.

The 20-year-old frontman has already been on show twice and scored two goals against Newcastle’s Dutch World Cup keeper Tim Krul in a closed-doors game a fortnight ago.

Duffy, who has just returned to the Irish side after a week’s training at Brentford, was asked about the prospect of a third outing with the Hoops.

He replied: “I really don’t see what that will achieve.

“The Celtic manager, Ronny Deila, watched me training and with the game against Newcastle having been recorded, I don’t see why he would want me over again.

“I trained well and scored two goals in the 3-1 win at Newcastle, so I was very happy with the trial.”

Duffy insisted: “I don’t think I need to go over again.

“I also enjoyed training at Brentford. It was another good experience for me.

“To have trained and played at two very good football clubs with great set-ups was good.”
