Celtic are 'hunting' Rosenborg star Birger Meling as they seek reinforcements at left-back following Kieran Tierney's departure to Arsenal.

Meling, 24, has played against the Hoops for his Norwegian club and even scored against them last year.

Neil Lennon has already brought in Boli Bolingoli as a ready-made replacement for Arsenal's newest player Tierney.

However the Scottish Champions are hopeful of more bodies in.

According to TV2 pundit and ex-player Jesper Mathisen, they have identified Meling as a target.

And they have reportedly already sounded him out.

Mathisen said: "Meling has been hunted a bit by Celtic.

"They sold their left back to Arsenal, so they have a hole there.

"Meling is a player they know well, because Celtic has played against Rosenborg a couple of times."
