Pundit makes 'big' claim on Celtic signing Brady after key update
Gabby Agbonlahor has claimed Celtic should not sign Robbie Brady on a free transfer.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker claimed Brady has a “big problem” as he is still unattached at this stage of the season.
The Glasgow Times reported on September 16 that Celtic could have a free run at Brady after Swansea City pulled out of the race for his signature.
The 57-time Republic of Ireland international has been without a club since leaving Burnley in the summer.
Celtic have already signed fellow Ireland international James McCarthy on a free transfer this summer after he left Crystal Palace.

“Every time I watched him play for Burnley, he’s come off injured.
“I don’t see Celtic touching that, to be honest. It’s a big problem when you’re a free agent coming up to October. The season will have been going on for two and a half months.
“It’s worrying times if you’re a free agent now. It means that nobody wants you, to be honest. You’re going to have to get a deal that’s not what you want because you’re desperate.
“When you’ve been injured and not been in good form, it’s not easy to find a club.”
Brady has played 160 times in the Premier League across his time with Burnley, Norwich City and Hull City.
The 29-year-old played 19 times in the top-flight last term but last started a game in January.
