Pundit talks up Celtic transfer for Scotland Internationalist

Former Celtic striker Alan McInally has suggested that the Scottish Champions consider Norwich goalkeeper Angus Gunn as they look to replace Joe Hart.

Brendan Rodgers is in the market for a new No.1 and the player turned pundit believes that Gunn could be a shout.

Speaking to a bet maker’s website, via Football Scotland, McInally said that the player didn’t have a great start to his Euros but responded with solid displays in Switzerland and Hungary.

“Angus Gunn to Celtic? Maybe, maybe, because Joe’s retired now. I don’t think he played well against Germany. I really don’t. I think he picked up though and I think he recovered against Switzerland and Hungary, for sure.

“But I thought he was at fault for the first goal against Germany and I thought he could have done better in a couple of instances. And certainly, as a goalkeeper, you have to be powerful and strong and you also have to be reliable for the guys in front of you. You need to know that we’ve got someone behind us that’s just rock steady and consistently good.

“Would Celtic sign him? I don’t know. I think Celtic would go for it. It’s a good question. And I don’t know if he’s got a connection with Celtic. I don’t know. It’s a hard one to answer. At the moment in time, he’s probably happy where he is, at Norwich City, where his dad was, of course.”

The 28-year-old has a year remaining on his deal with the Canaries and may fancy a change of scenery from East Anglia. The player will be aware of the lure of Celtic from international teammates, including the club captain Callum McGregor.

Celtic are in the hunt for a new No.1 and John Kennedy has admitted that the club are making progress towards signings.

  1. There is some rubbish by so called top sports pundits that are proven in the last 3 weeks they know as much as supporters about the going ons at Celtic park there want be much till European nation cup and the Americas tournaments are Dow to couple of teams unless your after player not involved in tournaments so I can’t see O’Riley moving this summer transfer Denmark must have best midfield in Europe or world to leave him out but that’s managers right decision gets these managers sack or new contract I think he will be looking for new job what a pompous arse

  2. Wouldn’t listen with any confidence to anything that big diddy says. It’s a series of “mibbe”, ” don’t know – he clearly has less insight than even us ! Gunn is an average goalkeeper at best. We need a top one. Amazing how on life me media panders to guys like this s clown.
