Free agent Joe Hart would be a “good addition” for Celtic if they were to sign him this summer, according to Michael Brown.

The former Manchester City midfielder, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, has lauded the 33-year-old for his recent comments about his future and suggested he was unlucky at Burnley.

The Daily Record report that talks between the Bhoys and Hart’s representatives are at an advanced stage as Neil Lennon looks for an alternative goalkeeper signing to Fraser Forster.

Hart is currently out of contract after being released by Burnley, leaving him free to speak to any interested suitors.

Brown believes that Hart is seeking a regular first-team spot after being stuck on the bench at Turf Moor and suggests Celtic could be a great destination for him.

Brown told Football Insider: “He did a great interview with the BBC saying how he still has the desire, how he wants to be in the right place and I thought it said a lot about Joe Hart.

“He could walk away and think he’s back up but he wants to play. You look at the Burnley side he went into when he had his opportunity, they weren’t playing well and it just didn’t help him. If he’d have gone in a month later, he could have played right until the end of the season.

“He’s a good goalkeeper and I think he’d be a good addition if Celtic were to sign him.”

Hart, who joined Burnley from Manchester City back in 2018, played just three times across all competitions this season before his release.

The 75-cap international has a total of 340 Premier League appearances and two top-flight titles to his name.
