According to reports, Celtic goalkeeper Conor Hazard could be on the move with interest from English League One side, Accrington Stanley.
Journalist, Alan Nixon suggested on Twitter that this move could in fact be a permanent one with Hazard moving to Stanley, full-time.
ACCRINGTON. Watching developments with keeper Hazard at Celtic. Could be available if does not sign a new deal. Stanley would take him full time.— Alan Nixon (@reluctantnicko) September 20, 2020
This move would certainly be a strange one and leave Celtic rather short-handed when it comes to goalkeepers at the club.
The Northern Irishman has three years left on his deal and is currently third choice goalkeeper at the club. If he was to leave that would mean the hoops would be left with just Vasilis Barkas and Scott Bain.
This would also suggest that youngster Ryan Mullen would be forced to step up into Hazard’s shoes, with the Ross Doohan out on loan at Ross County.
Unless Neil Lennon has some sort of other option, lined-up to replace the 22-year old, I don’t believe this move will happen as it would leave us extremely short in such a crucial position.
