Noel Whelan has claimed that Jamal Lowe would be a “great signing” for Celtic and is a player that would fit Neil Lennon’s system.
The former Leeds United forward, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, said that the Hoops would be able to get “a bargain price” for the 26-year-old this summer.
The Daily Mail claim that the Wigan winger is “attracting big interest” from Parkhead as the Latics brace themselves for a summer exodus.
The Championship side entered administration earlier this month and a host of their top players are now being touted for moves away as the club looks to balance the books.
Whelan tipped the London-born attacker to be a success in Glasgow if signed given his skillset.
“A very good player,” he told Football Insider. “He has power, strength, pace and can do a box-to-box job as well. I have no doubt that he would be a great signing for Celtic.
“He would fit into the Neil Lennon plays. A fast winger who would add attacking quality and bring strength in depth.
“Wigan, for all their financial difficulties, will have to sell players so Celtic could get him at a bargain price.”
Lowe‘s 47 appearances in all competitions this season have yielded six goals and five assists.
He has two years left on his contract at the DW Stadium having arrived for £2.43million from Portsmouth last summer.
