Former Celtic academy star and Camp Nou hero David Marshall is set to return to Scottish football next season according to West London Sport.

The report claims David will shortly leave QPR after his short term contract expires at which point he’ll be heading north of the border to sign for Hibernian.

The Easter Road side don’t have a manager at present, any signings made would be by the board themselves unless they have someone in the wings who is okaying the deal.

The Scotland international has been down south for a long time, ever since Arthur Boruc ousted him for a slot in the Celtic first team.

David burst onto the scene when he was 18, the goalkeeper having to come on at half time during a UEFA Cup game against Barcelona after Rab Douglas was sent off in the tie after a case of mistaken identity during an incident in the tunnel.

David helped Celtic to a victory that night and in the second leg, the goalkeeper performed a memorable shut out, playing out his skin and helping to knock out the Catalans.

Marshall has made a great career for himself and he got to play in a major international competition with Scotland back in the summer of 2021. Coming home to see out the final stage of his career seems like an astute move.
