CELTIC TARGET Steven Caulker has today been released from his QPR contract after talks between himself and the club.

Steven, who has had his off-field problems is very close with Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers and the Irishman spoke highly of the player back in July when Celtic were first interested.

“We spoke at length about his life and his situation and just where he is at. He is a boy that if he can get it together and find a peace then he is an awesome talent.” admitted Rodgers,

“He is 6ft3ins, quick, strong, he can play. You would take him to war with you. He is unbelievable, both boxes, he is an incredible young footballer but he is suffering.

“Having had experience in trying to help him then I was only too happy to do that. At this stage there is nothing more than that.

“He is obviously a QPR player and I was only too happy to speak to him and help him try to shape his life.”

QPR were still coy over the defender’s future back in the summer and Celtic were put off from bidding for his services. He is now free to speak to anyone; we just wonder if Brendan will give him a call.

At the age of 25, he could be a fantastic asset to the club.


  1. I would rather him than Hendry. But he has problems and coming up to a Goldfish bowl and all the hassle might not be the best thing for him. Depends on where he is at the moment.

  2. There is no doubting this guy’s talent and ability. He’s an England international f’Chrissake!
    BUT there is obviously a reason or reasons why QPR have released him early from his contract whilst writing off a potential transfer fee. If his mental health is suffering then being in the spotlight at Celtic is certainly not the place for him. I know Brendan Rodgers is a hugely talented coach and man manager but he isn’t a master psychologist.

  3. Get him in and have a good look at him,The talent is there,Guy just needs a fresh start.A new Beginning and No better Place for him to Prosper than Celtic.Better to face his Demons Head on.Mon Brendan wit ye waiting for,HH and Well Put James Forrest article on that Rancid Mob who still insist They are the Real Dead RainJurz…..Facts are Facts,Cant Hide The Truth
