STEVEN CAULKER will get his first chance to play at Celtic Park this week after turning down an offer from Brendan Rodgers to sign for the club last year.

Caulker admitted at the time of the offer; he wasn’t ready to leave his family after suffering from depression which the player has been open and honest about.

The Englishman made a shock move to Dundee at the start of February with many believing Brendan Rodgers played a hand in the defender making a move up north.

The Celtic manager is a massive fan of the defender and it wouldn’t beyond the realms of possibility for Rodgers to show interest again should he adapt to the Scottish game.

Dundee have been struggling for some time now, and even Caulker’s presence hasn’t been enough to stave off some bad results for Neil McCann’s side.

Celtic fans will be able to see the former Celtic target first hand on Wednesday night when the club will be up against a central pairing of Caulker and former Celtic star Darren O’Dea.

The 26-year-old will be desperate to put in a good performance against his friend Brendan Rodgers’ side, and it will be up to Celtic’s attacking line to make sure he has an uncomfortable evening.


  1. Must comment on standard of referee on Saturday.Although he rightly red carded a thug he had an Nelson eye for many acts of sculdugerly from many Ross County players,notably against Scott Sinclair,one sided refereeing,no surprises.Refereeing committee should summon Levein for slander and bringing the game into disrepute.
