Brendan Rodgers Includes Surprise Name In Celtic's Pre-Season Squad

Celtic have flown out to Austria for the beginning of their pre-season tour and Brendan Rodgers has included his son Anton in the trip.

The 24-year-old is currently a free agent after his contract at Swindon Town ran out at the end of last season, Devon Live claim midfielder is on an official trial with the Scottish champions.

Anton was kitted out in Celtic training gear as he arrived alongside Leigh Griffiths, Moussa Dembele and the Hoops' other stars at Glasgow airport.

Previously, Anton has played for Birmingham, as well as Oldham - where he played against his dad's Liverpool team in the FA Cup several seasons ago.

And as we've told you before, he's no stranger to hitting a pretty blistering free-kick - so could we be about to see him in action in the Scottish Premiership?

Skip to 0.42 to see Rodgers junior work his magic.

What do you think, Bhoys fans? Is the Celtic manager making the right call taking his son on the tour?
