Inverness: Celtic loan Andre Blackman to Caley Thistle

Celtic defender Andre Blackman has been farmed out to Inverness Caledonian Thistle on loan until January.

The 21-year-old has made only three appearances for the Scottish champions since winning a contract in October.

London-born Blackman was with Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth as a youth.

He started his senior career with Bristol City before moving to AFC Wimbledon but was without a club when he joined Celtic.

Now he will remain in the Scottish Premier League with Terry Butcher's Caley Thistle.

Butcher has recently added youngsters Philip Roberts and George Brislen-Hall to his ranks, but he was keen to temper fans' expectations about the new recruits.

Striker Roberts has arrived on loan from Arsenal, while defender Brislen-Hall was released by the London club.

"They are young players and I don't think the supporters should expect too much," he said.

"Phil is 18 and George is 19 and they are players who haven't really had a taste of first-team football.

"It's great to have two news faces. It's two extra faces that we didn't think we'd get, so it's a massive bonus for us."
