DUNDEE today pulled off a massive signing in Steven Caulker. A man that was not so long ago linked with Celtic because of his close ties to Brendan Rodgers.
The 26-year-old has had a difficult few years, coming to terms with his depression and struggles with alcohol and gambling addictions.
He was tipped early in his career to hit the heights but because of the circumstances, the defender is yet to fulfil that potential.
Whatever way you want to look at it, it’s an outstanding piece of business for Dundee.
There is no doubt that Caulker would have had a chat with Brendan Rodgers about the move to Scotland at the very least. That conversation must have gone well as he signed on the dotted line on an 18-month deal.
Many believe Rodgers wants to see the big man back playing and if he can adapt to Scottish Football there’s every chance he could end up at Celtic Park.
These fans agree.
Cracking signing, 18 months as well, I am sure Rodgers is involved in this somehere. ? The 3 way player deal and we got 2, we gave Dundee £1M….Maybe Rodgers will keep an eye on how he settles?…Some signing for Dundee…Like a WOW signing….

Basicly on trial at dundee.
If he does well and gets his head in the right place Rodgers will snap him up.
Wish the big man all the best

Brendan Rodgers is a huge admirer and close friend of Caulker and I wouldn't be surprised if part of the deal for us to sign Jack Hendry was that Brendan would help Dundee sign Caulker.
Good signing. https://t.co/3vBQQpOtUc

Fair play Dundee, Caulker is an excellent signing. Also gives Celtic a chance to see how he'll cope up here. If he performs well, he'll be at us next season.
