Celtic should ideally be in the hunt to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer and Brendan Rodgers must make an ambitious move for Manchester City’s Joe Hart after it was reported that he wants to quit the Etihad in the summer.

The Sun claimed that Hart, 30, wants to try his luck abroad once his loan spell at West Ham ends, but Celtic should force their way into the reckoning and table some tempting propositions to the England international

The Bhoys are guaranteed European football, possibly even in the Champions League if they get through their qualifiers for a third year in a row.

Hart is said to be earning a massive £120,000-a-week at Man City, but the Hoops could no doubt be able to try and strike an agreement with the Premier League giants that will see them pay a fraction of that.

It’s clear that the Bhoys also have some sort of relationship with City too after signing Patrick Roberts twice on loan from them.

It would certainly be ambitious for Celtic to try and sign Hart, but with their financial position improving constantly and the likelihood of Moussa Dembele fetching a good fee in the summer, Rodgers could find himself with a handsome transfer and wage budget to play around with.

Craig Gordon and Dorus de Vries are also two goalkeepers that have faced criticism and are not getting any younger.

Hart could be available for a loan for one season and then after that, it is understood the West Ham loanee may be available for a free transfer when it expires.

He could either use Parkhead as a stepping stone, or he could be so impressed with the Scottish giants that he decides to make Glasgow his home.

Everyone is crying out for Celtic to show some ambition and this would definitely be a massive move that would see them stamp their authority in Scotland and reach further into Europe.
