. Since moving to Germany, Barry has been living on-campus at the state-of-the-art Bayern Academy. Dad Barry said this week: “He’s really enjoying it, even though he hasn’t had the chance to play many games because of Covid. “He’s living at the academy and he’s training and has German lessons a few times a week to pick up the language and make life a bit easier.” The proud father added: “Celtic offered him a very good deal to stay last summer, but this was an opportunity that he felt was too good to pass up. “He made the move and we went over to Germany with him to sign in the middle of all of the Covid stuff. “There’s not been much football for him to play because of the pandemic, but he did play in a game for the U17s against the U19 team and scored.” Barry followed in the footsteps of former Celtic team-mate, Liam Morrison (17) who also made the move to Bayern last July.
