Pundit issues 'massive' Celtic claim after Cho Gue-sung transfer reveal

Alan Hutton has backed Celtic to beat Ferencvaros to signing Cho Gue-sung.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Rangers defender said Cho reminds him of current Hoops striker Giorgos Giakoumakis.

According the the Daily Record (1 December), the Celts have been joined by Ferencvaros in the chase for the 24-year-old.

The striker has been impressing at the World Cup and he rocketed into the spotlight when he scored two goals against Ghana last week (28 November), despite going on to lose the game 3-2.

Sources in Hungary have claimed Ferencvaros have contacted Cho’s representatives about his future plans.

When asked if the Parkhead club are a bigger draw than other European clubs, Hutton told Football Insider:I do not see why not.

I have watched his games at the World Cup, I think he is a real threat. He is a presence up front. He is kind of like that Giakoumakis style player.

The draw of coming to a league where you are winning trophies, playing European football, I think that is a massive draw in itself.

The crowds that Celtic and Rangers pull in every week are massive, why would you not want to be part of that? At this moment in time Celtic are very strong so they are going in the right direction.

The only way is up for them at this moment in time so that could be a big draw for a player like that.
