'Given me a few hard games' - Hutton hails 'Excellent' potential Celtic signing amid BBC report
Alan Hutton believes Hull City’s Kamil Grosicki would be a great signing for Celtic and admits the winger has given him “a few hard games” over the years.
The ex-Aston Villa and Spurs right-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, says the 31-year-old would “definitely add quality” to the Premiership champions were they to acquire him this January.
As reported by BBC Sport journalist Mike White, the Hoops are interested in doing a deal for the wide man and could launch a bid before Friday’s transfer deadline.
Grosicki, who is out of contract in the summer, has netted eight goals in 30 appearances this season for the Tigers who sit 13th in the Championship and Hutton says he would be a fine addition to the squad.
When asked whether the ex-Rennes player would be a good addition to Neil Lennon’s squad, Hutton told Football Insider: ” A very good player. I have played against him on numerous occasions.

“He is a willing runner, willing worker, can create chances and score goals. He has done excellent for Hull City so if Celtic could get someone like that it would definitely add quality to their squad.
“He has given me a few hard games! A really good addition to their squad.”
Neil Lennon has already lost one winger in Scott Sinclair this month, the attacker joining Preston North End, while Lewis Morgan is set to move to Inter Miami.
Grosicki, who still currently plays for the Polish national side, has 73 caps to date and will be looking to add to that following his team’s qualification for Euro 2020 this summer.
