Celtic linked with shock move for David Marshall should Forster deal fail

DAVID MARSHALL burst onto the scene with a captivating goalkeeping performance at the Nou Camp, earning Celtic a clean sheet with some breathtaking stops. The Wigan goalkeeper, 35, started his career at Celtic before departing in 2007 after Gordon Strachan opted for Artur Boruc.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Celtic are committed to signing Fraser Forster as the club’s first choice goalkeeper as they attempt to win a 10th league title in a row. However, with no deal in place as of yet for the England internationalist, Celtic could turn their attentions to their former shot stopper.

Marshall, 35, is currently with Wigan Athletic and recently told Si Ferry’s Open Goal that he regretted leaving Celtic when he did. The shock move from Celtic would set up an emotional return to Paradise for the goalkeeper but in all honesty, if it transpires, supporters would be disappointed that we failed to get Forster.

Marshall has a year remaining on his contract and a fee would be needed to prise him away from the Latics. Fraser Forster remains Celtic’s first choice for the goalkeeper vacancy at Celtic Park with Scott Bain the only first team goalkeeper at the club next season as it stands.

Craig Gordon, who spent six years at the Scottish Champions, signed for Hearts earlier today after failing to agree a new contract.
