The Scottish Sun have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are expected to face defeat in the race for young Scottish goalkeeper Rory Mahady.
Mahady has come through the ranks of the Celtic academy set up and has won several admirers over recent years with his performances for their development sides.
While the teenager has not made a senior appearance for the Bhoys, he has represented Scotland at both Under-16 and Under-17 levels.
This week, Mahady took to Instagram to confirm that he will be departing Parkhead following nine years at the club’s academy.
The Sun have now claimed that Spurs are one of the clubs who are looking to snap up the teenager, who is now a free agent.
It is explained that the North London club face competition from Manchester City for Mahady but it is Leeds United who are expected to win the race for the goalkeeper as he gets set to sign his first professional contract.

Perhaps, it is Andy Scoulding who altered Tottenham to Mahady, given his expertise in the British market. The 40-year-old spent the last few years at Rangers and so, would have watched the 16-year-old in action in youth games on a few occasions.
