Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers should target former Hoops man Ki Sung-Yeung if his team Swansea are relegated from the Premier League.

Ki, who won a title with the Hoops in 2012, has spent the last six years with the Welsh side, after leaving the Hoops to join them in 2012 for a fee of £6million.

Since playing in the Premier League, he has matured in a far better player than he was as a youngster in Glasgow, and at only 29-years-old he could well be a natural replacement for Scott Brown.

A key factor could be if Swansea are relegated from the Premier League. They currently sit in 14th place, three points above the relegation zone, and the chances of him returning to the Hoops would be far better should the Welsh side be relegated.

As for replacing Brown long-term, the Hoops captain is 32-years-old, and is unlikely to be able to play his all-action style of football for that much longer, before injuries finally take their toll.

Ki might be a bit more languid than Brown, but he is more than capable of dictating the midfield play like Brown does, and his years of playing in one of the best leagues in the world could well benefit the Hoops whilst playing in Europe.

Aside from Brown, the Hoops are really lacking an experienced midfielder, and if the circumstances are right, Ki more than fits the bill to return to the Bhoys.
