TREVER CARSON has spoken publicly for the first time since Celtic tried to sign him on deadline day back in January.
Celtic had two bids rejected for the Motherwell goalkeeper before acquiring Scott Bain on-loan from Dundee.
Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph Trevor recalls the surreal moment he heard the news and how he tried to keep up to date with what was happening on social media.
“It was quite surreal for me because I’ve never been in that position,” explained Carson.
“I’ve been a lower-league keeper over the years where your contract’s up and you go and find another club.
“To have a club like Celtic after you, you walk about a foot taller, the lads in training are talking about it. It happened so quickly. We had a game on the Wednesday, the night the window shut. You’re human. I was trying to focus on the game but there’s still part of you checking Google, Twitter to see what people are saying.
The keeper admitted it did mess with his head a little and even though it was disappointing he’s firmly back for Motherwell.
“I’m back now, I’m definitely in a stronger position. It didn’t happen, it might be once in a lifetime, I might never get the chance again to play for a club like Celtic, who knows? Two months later I’ve taken all the positives out of it, it’s helped boost my profile.
“Someone like Brendan Rodgers interested in you, you’ve got to be flattered.”
