Brady backed to sign for Celtic by ex-teammate after Dyche's update

Robbie Brady would “love” to move to Celtic this summer and he would be a “great” signing regardless of who is appointed manager.

That is according to Brady’s former Burnley teammate Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the prospect of the 29-year-old moving to Parkhead this summer.

Brady could leave Turf Moor as a free agent this summer, with his contract set to expire in June.

As quoted by the Glasgow Live, Clarets manager Sean Dyche claimed talks were “ongoing” when asked about the Republic of Ireland international’s contract situation.

The Scottish Sun report that Brady is a long-term target of the Hoops and claim the club will make a fresh attempt to sign him in the summer.

When asked for his assessment of Brady’s potential move north of the border, Robinson told Football Insider: “I think he would be a great signing for Celtic.

“He is a fantastic player, a hard-working winger who has a fantastic delivery on him.

“I know it is a move that he would really love as well with his Irish background. I think the chance of playing at Celtic would be a big draw for him and one that would be difficult to turn down.

“He has had his injury problems this season and he has been in and out of the team. To let his contract run this far down tells me that he is probably leaving.

“A move to Celtic would work. There is going to be an overhaul there this summer but I think Robbie would be a great addition regardless of who comes in.”
