Liam Bonetig signs with Celtic

Western Sydney Wanderers FC have confirmed that Wanderers Academy defender Liam Bonetig has departed the club to join Scottish Premier League side Celtic FC.

The 17-year-old was spotted by scouts while playing in the Australian School Boys tournament and Wanderers Academy where Bonetig has worked his way up from the U13s to the National Premier League first team this season.

Despite progression plans in place at the Wanderers to have Bonetig transition into the A-Leagues team in the coming year, the defender has chosen to take the opportunity to sign for the Scottish side.

The Wanderers will receive a sum in training compensation as Bonetig has been at the club since 2016.

The Red & Black wish Liam all the best at Celtic and hope that his brother, current A-Leagues player Alex, also eventually makes the move to Europe in the coming years.
