Marco Tilio included in Australia squad for Asian Cup

Celtic forward Marco Tilio has been included in Australia's squad for the upcoming Asian Cup.

The winger has struggled with injuries so far during his time in Glasgow making just two cameo appearances from the bench since joining from Melbourne City during the summer transfer window.

Brendan Rodgers is likely to lose stars such as Kyogo Furuhashi, Daizen Maeda and Oh Hyeon-gyu for the tournament but Tilio is the first official player to be called up for his country.

The 22-year-old will be part of Graham Arnold's 26-man squad for the competition in Qatar as the Socceroos face a group containing Uzbekistan, India and Syria.

If Australia go far in the competition then Tilio could be unavailable until after February 10 2024, when the final takes place.

Meanwhile, Hacken midfielder Romeo Amane is a player Celtic are "considering" making a move for in January.

This is according to Football Scotland who claim that "the playmaker has been watched closely by the Hoops, including during a recent Europa League clash against Qarabag".

Amane is valued at £3million by the Swedish side, having scored three goals and provided three assists for Hacken this season.

He has played every single match in their European campaign, including in a qualifier against Aberdeen back in August where his side knocked out the Dons.

The 20-year-old was also named alongside Parkhead midfielder Odin Thiago Holm in the Golden Boy award for 2023.
