Video: Morton’s Aidan Nesbitt Returns to Celtic to Hit Youth Cup Semi Winner

Aidan Nesbitt was the hero for Celtic‘s youth team after scoring their winning to set up another Youth Cup final appearance.

And that’s despite Nesbitt currently being out on loan at Championship side Greenock Morton.

The young attacker has made 25 appearances for Jim Duffy’s men this season – the majority coming from the bench.

Nesbitt was a second-half substitute in Morton’s 1-0 defeat to Dumbarton on Saturday, but has got some game time after featuring for Celtic’s youth team in their Cup semi-final against Motherwell last night.

We’re not quite sure what the agreement is which allows Nesbitt play for the youth team while on loan at Morton. It is unusual to see.

But Celtic won’t care, as the attacker made the difference with the only goal of a 1-0 win to set up a Youth Cup final clash with Rangers at Hampden:

Queen of the South midfielder Joe Thomson was also in the Celtic team, returning to the club temporarily to help them out with their semi-final with holders Motherwell.

But should it be allowed? Or should these players be ruled out of playing if they’re attached on loan to another club?

Let us know in the comments below..
