Ex-Arsenal star Campbell claims new Celtic signing will be a 'massive' player this season after Hart reveal

Kevin Campbell insists Joe Hart will relish the chance to play for Celtic after arriving from Tottenham.

The Arsenal icon, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, hailed the experience Hart will bring to Parkhead.

On 3rd August, Celtic announced the signing of Hart on a three-year deal.

The former Man City keeper was thrown straight into Ange Postecoglou’s side to face Jablonec in the Europa League.

Celtic won 4-2 as Hart failed to keep a clean sheet on his debut.

Football Insider revealed on 2 August the 34-year-old will be catapulted into the club’s top earning category.

That is still a drop on Hart’s Tottenham earnings where he had a year left to run on his contract.

Campbell insists Hart will prove himself to be a vital asset at his new club after only making 10 appearances for Spurs last season.

“The great thing about Joe is that he has that experience,” Campbell told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.

“That big club experience matters, especially going to a club like Celtic.

“Hart has won the Premier League, he was England’s number one, he will relish the chance to play for Celtic.

“He can be massive for them.

“He will prove himself up there, I’m sure. It’s a big opportunity for him.”

Vasilis Barkas has had a torrid start to the season and has been heavily criticised by fans and pundits.

He made numerous errors as Celtic crashed out of the Champions League and were hammered by West Ham in pre-season.
