Otoo signed his first professional contract with the Celtic in June 2019 and recently penned a new deal until 2024.

He has progressed to the Reserves from the club’s Under-17s having started playing for the Hoops from the age of eight.

He has featured for Scotland at youth level but also qualifies to represent Ghana.

Clyde hit the bottom of League One on Saturday following a 3-1 home defeat to East Fife.

Otoo will add defensive options for Danny Lennon’s men ahead of a gruelling run of 11 fixtures within a month.
