Charlton ace Alfie Doughty has a decision to make after Celtic and Rangers both lodged pre-contract offers for the player.

Both sides of the Glasgow divide are keen on the left-sided player and Herald and Times Sport understands they have offered terms to the 21-year-old as well as Stoke City who could land him this month after offering around £650,000.

The three-way battle for his signature comes down to Doughty's choice and he could still opt to remain at the Addicks until the end of the season when he would then move to either the Hoops or Gers.

Doughty has six months left on his deal at The Valley but manager Lee Bowyer, despite desperately wanting to keep hold of the youngster, is resigned to losing him.

We exclusively told last summer how Celtic had two offers rejected by Charlton before they refused to lodge a third in the hope of sealing a pre-contract deal.

Now Gers and Stoke City boss Michael O'Neill have thrown spanners into the works.

There is also understood to be at least one other English Championship club interested in Doughty.
