Celtic told to sign Brady after door opens for deal to be completed - pundit

Danny Mills has told Celtic to make a move for free agent Robbie Brady.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Premier League and England defender insisted Brady will have a point to prove and could thrive at Parkhead.

The Glasgow Times reported on September 16 that the Hoops now have a free run at the versatile left-footer after Swansea City pulled out of the race for his signature.

The 29-year-old left Burnley over the summer after spending the last four-and-a-half-yeares at Turf Moor.

He has played 160 times in the Premier League across his time with Burnley, Norwich City and Hull City.

Brady also has eight goals in 57 appearances for the Republic of Ireland national side.

Asked whether he could be a good signing for Celtic, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “You want a player that wants to play and maybe has a little bit of a point to prove.

“Also, he’s maybe got a little bit of a bruised or wounded ego and is going to want to say to other people ‘I’m still here you know. I’m not dead and buried just yet. Don’t write me off because there’s still more to come from me’.

“I would suggest, yes, a player like that, if his attitude is good, then you’ve got a real chance of getting a real quality player.”

Celtic signed James McCarthy from Premier League side Crystal Palace on a free transfer last month.

New manager Ange Postecoglou brought in 10 senior players over the summer transfer window as six stars left the club.
