No-brainer for Rodgers: Celtic must re-sign 25-year-old reportedly nearing end of contract


It is not often that Celtic re-sign a player who has previously left the club, but one player they should re-unite with is Hibernian midfielder Dylan McGeouch.

The 25-year-old has been a revelation for the Edinburgh side since their promotion back to the Scottish Premiership, and his form was recently awarded with a Scotland call-up.

As the player is out of contract at the end of the season, as reported by the Scottish Sun, it seems like a no-brainer for Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers to gauge the level of interest from the player in returning to the Hoops.

With doubts over the future of attacking midfielders Stuart Armstrong, who only has a year left on his contract at the end of the season, and Tom Rogic, who reportedly turned down a new contract at the club according to Australian site The World Game, there is a ready made replacement for the duo in McGeouch.

Perhaps the only stumbling block to the move could come from McGeouch himself, who may not want to return to Celtic Park after being unable to hold down a first team place in his first spell with the club.

However, as he hugely kicked on as a player since leaving Glasgow for Edinburgh he should have the confidence to know that he would be a key first team player for the Bhoys.

Whilst many people have claimed that his team-mate John McGinn will end up moving to the Scottish Champions, McGeouch is the player from the Hibernian midfield that the Hoops should be looking to bring in.
