Celtic target reveals everyone is messaging him about potential Hoops move

By Coral Barry

Celtic target Robert Snodgrass revealed “everyone and their dog” has messaged him about a potential move to Parkhead.

But the Scotland international insists that he has been through too much at Hull to leave the club this summer.

The winger has long been linked with a move to Celtic Park and join up with the team he grew up supporting, but Snodgrass says he is committed to Hull for the foreseeable future.

Snodgrass suffered a serious knee injury in 2014 that would keep him out for over a year, but the 28-year-old returned this season to help the Tigers win promotion back into the Premier League via the play-offs on Saturday.

It marked the end of an excellent comeback season for Snodgrass and he revealed he is far too happy at the KC Stadium to consider a transfer to another club.

“To be honest with you, I think everyone and their dog has messaged me about it,” said Snodgrass, speaking to the Herald. “You are always the last to know.

“A new manager has gone into Celtic and it’s great for Scottish football, I have to say. But, for myself, I am a Hull City player. The supporters have been terrific for me. I have a three-year contract and I’m going to give this club every drop I have until I’m told otherwise.

“I have been through so much. These team-mates of mine are brilliant. I have great rapport with them and I love going into training every day.

“We go in with a smile on our faces. I can’t control what happens outside the club. The only thing I can control is what happens here and I have loved every second of Hull.”

Hull beat Sheffield Wednesday at Wembley on Saturday thanks to sensational second half strike from Mohamed Diame.

The 1-0 victory ensured a swift return to the top flight for Hull after being relegated into the Championship last season.

Snodgrass missed just four league games when he returned to action in December and Celtic would presumably have to match or offer better than the £7million Hull paid for the winger from Norwich two years ago.

In other Celtic news, the Hoops have been told they will have to match the wages they are paying Brendan Rodgers to land this Premier League midfielder.
