Parkhead trial for Scandinavian starlet


Valerenga's 16-year-old Norwegian striker Riki Alba has been handed a week-long trial by Celtic.

The talented youngster will travel to Scotland in a bid to win a professional deal with the SPL giants, after being put through his paces in Lennoxtown.

"First of all I look forward to an exciting experience," said Alba. "I've been waiting for this opportunity for a very long time.

"It's something I've dreamed about since I was six years old [and] I want to learn as much as possible from the trial."

It's not the first time that Bhoys boss Neil Lennon has delved into the Scandinavian market in search of new players to strengthen his Celtic Park squad.

The Hoops have agreed to sign Swedish full-back Mikael Lustig from Norwegian side Rosenborg in January, as the club continue to look for reinforcements.
