ADAM IDAH has remained tightlipped about his potential permanent switch to Celtic, despite the guessing game going into overdrive.

The Republic of Ireland international striker has collected nine goals since his deadline-day arrival in January on loan from Norwich City has become a hit with the manager, his team-mates and the fans during his brief stay.

Idah brought down the curtain on his temporary deal in spectacular style when he pounced to fire in the last-minute Scottish Cup winner against Philippe Clement’s Ibrox outfit at Hampden at the weekend.

DOUBLE TAKE…Cameron Carter-Vickers chases after Adam Idah to congratulate the striker on scoring Celtic’s third goal in the 3-3 draw at Ibrox last month.

Beaming boss Brendan Rodgers re-emphasised his thoughts on the 23-year-old hitman after the club’s 42nd triumph in the 150-year-old competition.

In the immediate aftermath of the drama at the national stadium, Idah was asked about his future and answered: “Football’s a tricky situation, I do love it here, it’s a great club.

“I am still contracted with Norwich, I will go back in the summer and who knows what is going to happen.”

Last year, Idah penned a new long-term contract with the Championship side until June 2028, so it will now come down to what the Carrow Road club demand for their player – and how much Celtic are prepared to pay.

However, there is little doubt the Cork-born star enjoyed his time at Parkhead and he made that clear in an interview with Celtic TV last month.

Idah said: “The manager, Brendan Rodgers, has a lot of trust in me, the lads have got used to me and know my style of football.

“I think when people have that trust in you and you can get minutes. Once that first goal comes, you do become confident in yourself and I think it helps so much.

“Having the fans at your back is huge, especially for me that helped me a lot, and it motivates me more to try and do better.”
