Australian Media Claims Celtic Are Looking to ‘Buy Ownership Stake’ in A-League Club

Celtic are interested in buying a stake in an Australian A-League club, according to reports in the Sydney Morning Herald this morning.

The Hoops already boast Australian international Tom Rogic as one of the club’s most high-profile players, and apparently the Scottish champions are keen to explore business opportunities in the country’s top-flight league after club representatives visited Central Coast Mariners a fortnight ago.

Celtic have enjoyed a four-year relationship with the Mariners, as they look to tap into player development and expanding their brand Down Under, but apparently the Brisbane Roar are also being looked at.

Manchester City’s billionaire owners have already invested in Australian football after buying an ownership stake in Melbourne City back in 2014, as part of their ‘City Football Group’.

Moreover, Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has previously been linked with taking over Newcastle Jets.

But what do you think of Celtic potentially purchasing a club in another country? Would it be a wise investment?
