Former Celtic defender Charlie Mulgrew is edging closer to a move back to the Scottish Premiership with Dundee United.

As quoted by Sun Sport, there have been reports in recent weeks that United was interested in bringing the 35-year old back to Scotland. That looks to be coming closer to being a reality with new Tannadice boss Tam Courts confirming the club’s interest.

“Charlie is somebody who has won the league five times, he has an international pedigree, and he is a leader who still wants to do well.

“So, when you take all of these different things into consideration, I think he will be fantastic for us on the pitch if we can secure him, both for our younger players and where we want to take the club.”

During his first spell at Parkhead, Mulgrew spent a season out on loan with United in the early days of his footballing career. Now it looks like he is about to return to Tannadice as they begin a new era at the club.

Mulgrew is currently a free agent after being let go by English League One side Blackburn Rovers, spending the last two seasons out on loan at both Wigan and Fleetwood Town.

Despite being 35, it doesn’t appear that the former Scotland internationalist is done just yet and will be looking to show that during his time at Dundee United.
