Vata signed his first professional contract with Celtic at the age of 16 in July 2021. He is the son of former Celtic defender and Albanian international Rudi Vata.
Despite being 17, the pacey midfielder who mostly plays down the wing became a known and exciting one to watch for the B team in the Lowland League.
Vata has been in the academy since seven-years-old and represents Ireland at youth level.
