Celtic are looking to land a 10 th successive Scottish Premiership title next term and manager Neil Lennon currently has Odsonne Edouard as his first- option striker, with Leigh Griffiths, Patryk Klimala and Vakoun Bayo providing cover.
Parrott might have a hard time to get the necessary playing minutes at Parkhead provided what is at stake, and he is most likely to succeed at a side where there is lower pressure to impress.
