It’s safe to say, since his playing days, Davie Provan has not endeared himself to the Celtic faithful going about his media duties on Sky Sports and elsewhere.

The former Celtic star has a lot of opinions and many which are quite out there in terms of being within the realms of reality.

Provan constantly talks like a man who has a lot to say on Scottish Football but comes across as someone who doesn’t watch it very often.

His latest candour for SunSport is a mixed bag – Provan implored the Celtic board not to make the same mistake in January like they did last year.

The club didn’t invest cleverly and even though they got a 1-0 win against Zenit in the 1st leg, they were outplayed in the 2nd.

Now, with another knockout game to look forward to, Provan believes the board must go above and beyond. However, his own pick who Celtic should go pick up is rather bizarre.

Provan claimed he thinks Brendan Rodgers should go for Stevie Naismith, currently on-loan from Norwich to Hearts.

“He could do a lot worse than move for Steven Naismith, out of contract at Hearts this summer.” he told SunSport

“Getting the 32-year-old international for nothing would be good business for Celtic if Naisy could handle the hassle.

“But, having been snubbed by Rangers when available at Norwich, he owes them nothing.”
