ARTUR BORUC has been linked with a Celtic return for a number of years but it has never transpired. Celtic are not the only club that have constantly been linked with re-signing the 40-year-old with his boyhood club Legia Warsaw the other. Now, the Bournemouth keeper appears set to make an emotional return to Warsaw after fifteen years away.
As reported by the Daily Record, Legia goalkeeping coach, Krzysztof Dowhan, suggested that a move for Boruc could be a possibility ahead of the new season.
“It would be a very good move by the club to bring back Artur.
“His contract at Bournemouth is now ending and it depends whether they stay in the Premier League or not whether he gets a new deal.
“But I think 40 is not old for a goalkeeper, especially with Artur because he’s hardly ever been injured.
“Physically, it would not be a problem and he would be incredibly motivated to play for Legia, the club that made him.”
Boruc signed a short term deal to remain at the Cherries as they fight for the Premier League survival. The Polish keeper was a fans favourite during his time in Glasgow and is still very well regarded, occasionally returning to play in goals during charity matches.
"I don’t have to like anybody – and I don’t. I don’t like them, I don’t like the club and I don’t like the players – end of story." – Artur Boruc

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that former Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon had returned to his boyhood club, Hearts. Both keepers have had incredible careers but their own times at Celtic were impressive.
