TBR View: Rangers and Celtic missed a trick over Tyrese Campbell

The youngster was backed for a move to Scotland during the summer transfer window.

Tyrese Campbell could have signed for Celtic or Rangers for a paltry £400,000 in the summer but the versatile forward opted to stick at Championship outfit Stoke City.

Just 11 games into the new season and he is already showing the Old Firm rivals exactly why they should have tried harder to sign the former England under-20 international.

His goal against the Royals was his fourth of the campaign, whilst the son of former Arsenal star Kevin also has five assists.

Capable of playing on either flank or the middle, the 20-year-old is showing that he could have been a capable performer at either Celtic or Rangers.


It was suggested that the player did prefer Rangers over the Celtic Park-based club, although he ultimately decided to stay at the Bet365 Stadium.

Stoke are currently sat eighth in the Championship and it’s not completely out of the question that Campbell could be lining up in the Premier League next season.

Rangers are on fire this season and currently sit nine points clear of their fierce rivals at the top of the Premiership.

Exciting talent

Celtic have struggled to scale the heights of previous seasons though and Campbell might have provided a spark.

At just 20-years-old he would have been a sound investment for the future and it seems as though both clubs missed a trick by not signing the youngster.

Campbell is quick, hardworking and appears to buzz off contributing to goals by either scoring or setting them up.

The early indications of this season suggest that both Celtic and Rangers might live to regret not trying hard to land the highly-rated talent.
