The transfer window is closed for another season but it’s still a busy time for those free agents trying to earn deals with new clubs and we have to say we’re surprised that some former Celts are still without a home.
They might not be at their best anymore but some of them still have a lot to offer the game. The notion you’re done ager 32-33 should be consigned to the past, especially with the fitness regimes today’s professionals have. You only slow down if you want to slow down.
With that in mind, there are three former Celts out there looking for a new club and while we wouldn’t be an advocate of Neil Lennon being the man to give them a home, we would very much like to see them get settled somewhere.
32-year-old and released by Derby in the summer. The bearded midfield ace has been on social media enjoying some time out of the game. Signed on a pre-contract from Cardiff, the Welshman gave Celtic some memorable moments and was always a model professional. The lad deserves to find a club.
Coming through the ranks of the Celtic academy, Wallace never really claimed a first team spot with the club. He’s gone onto have a great career down south but after a short stint with Fleetwood town, he is now a free agent. We’re going to make some of you feel very old by letting you know Ross is now 34. However, he is another guy who has an engine to keep going. We’re really surprised an SPFL side have not tried to snap Ross up.
Prolific frontman Gary Hooper is only 31 and was let go by Sheffield Wednesday in the summer. Having been signed by Neil Lennon and being perhaps one of the Irishman’s top buys, Gary moved to Norwich in a £6m deal. He has had varying amounts of success since but the best stint of his career was no doubt at Celtic. The Englishman has engaged with a lot of Celtic fans over a possible return, not now, but again a man who has something still to give somewhere.
