COMMENT

West Brom winger James McClean is a well-known Celtic fans, and he once more spoke of his desire to play for the Hoops after Scott Brown’s testimonial, which he played in.

The 29-year-old, who was relegated with the Baggies from the Premier League last season, revealed, as quoted by the Daily Record, that it was his ‘dream’ to one day play for the Hoops.

Unfortunately for McClean, it is unlikely that dream is going to come to fruition any time soon.

For a start West Brom will be wanting a fair bit of money for the player, and it is unlikely that Brendan Rodgers will spend what transfer budget he has on another winger when there are more pressing issues to deal with in the Hoops squad at the moment.

He is also unlikely to get into the Hoops’ first-team at the moment, as James Forrest, Callum McGregor and Scott Sinclair have made the wing position their own in Rodgers’ time with the Hoops, and with Lewis Morgan set to arrive over the summer there is no place for McClean in the Hoops squad.

There is no doubt that on his day McClean is a good player, and he would obviously add some qualities to the Hoops squad, but the time just isn’t right for him to make the move to Parkhead, and for the moment it seems he will have to be content with just remaining a fan.
