Celtic must seal last-gasp swoop for Netherlands international to solve Rodgers problem area
Celtic are on the hunt for a new goalkeeper following the injury suffered by Craig Gordon against Hibernian.
Brendan Rodgers admitted after the game that the knee injury suffered by the Scotland international was “serious” and that a new goalkeeper would need to be signed.
With the transfer window closing in the next week, time is running out on signing a player that will provide a challenge to Dorus de Vries in the Hoops goal.
One player who may well be under consideration by Rodgers is Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm and Celtic must try and make a last-gasp swoop for the Dutchman before Wednesday night’s transfer deadline.
The Hoops boss worked with the 34-year-old at Swansea, and Vorm has only played six matches for the London club so far this season.
One drawback to the possible transfer is that Netherlands international Vorm seems to be Spurs’ domestic cup goalkeeper, as he has played in both of their FA Cup games so far, including the 1-1 draw against Newport on Saturday.
He may be reticent to leave London as he is finally getting some game time, but then if he moved to Glasgow he could well replace both Gordon and de Vries as the Hoops’ number one.
The player is definitely one that Brendan Rodgers should consider signing to solve an unwelcome problem.
