WATT ON LOOK-OUT FOR TENTH CLUB

0

FORMER Celtic European goal hero Tony Watt is looking for the TENTH club of his career after quitting Belgian side OH Leuven.

The 24-year-old striker, who scored the unforgettable Champions League winner against mighty Barcelona at Parkhead in 2012, joined the second tier team last summer.

However, he struggled for playing time after Dennis van Wijk, the boss who signed him, was replaced with ex-Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson.

Watt posted on Twitter: “One chapter closed. Another one opens. Unfortunately, I never played much football when the new manager came in, but we left it on good terms.

“That’s football. I’ll have time to see my next step now. Back to Scotland now.”

Watt came through the ranks with Airdrie United before moving to Parkhead in 2011, a year before his winner against Lionel Messi and Co.

But he failed to hold down a permanent first team place and, following a loan spell with Lierse, new boss Ronny Deila allowed him to move on a permanent deal to Standard Liege in the summer of 2014.

He was back the following season after agreeing a contract with Charlton Athletic. Watt then had loan spells at Cardiff City, Blackburn Rovers and Hearts before moving back to Belgium in 2017.
