Paul Robinson has claimed his former Burnley teammate Robbie Brady would find it difficult to turn down Celtic this summer if the bhoys came calling for the midfielder.

Brady is on the final few months of his contract worth Burnley and will be a free agent come the summer.

Speaking of a potential move to Celtic, Robinson believes the pull of Celtic would be to hard to resist for Brady.

“He is a fantastic player, a hard-working winger who has a fantastic delivery on him,” Robinson told Football Insider.

“I know it is a move (to Celtic) that he would really love as well with his Irish background. I think the chance of playing at Celtic would be a big draw for him and one that would be difficult to turn down.”

“He has had his injury problems this season and he has been in and out of the team. To let his contract run this far down tells me that he is probably leaving. A move to Celtic would work. There is going to be an overhaul there this summer but I think Robbie would be a great addition regardless of who comes in.”

Robbie, 29, is weighing up his options but Celtic are unlikely to make major first team decisions without the proper management structure in place. Signing youngsters like Liam Shaw is one thing but taking on Brady would need to be a decision taken by the new boss and DoF.

Brady is currently priced at over £4m on TransferMarkt and has still made 19 appearances for Burnley this season despite injury.

It could be a move a new man looks at but for now, Celtic must wait for the decision makers to get their ducks in a row.
