Former Celtic striker Tony Watt trains with Aberdeen squad

Tony Watt charges off to celebrate his winner against Barcelona in 2012.

Former Celtic striker Tony Watt is training with Aberdeen.

Watt, 24, is without a club since leaving Oud-Heverlee Leuven in Belgium’s First Division B.

Despite Watt’s free agent status, rules prevent him from signing for a new club until the summer.

His link-up with Derek McInnes’ side is an effort to keep the player’s fitness up, and has come about because Watt and the Reds gaffer share an agent.

It is understood there are no plans at the moment for the Dons to sign the ex-Celt once rules allow.
