'Would Be Great Celtic Signing' - Exclusive: McAvennie reacts to Sky's West Brom reveal
Celtic should rival West Brom to the signing of West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass this month, according to Frank McAvennie.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Hoops and Hammers striker is adamant that the 33-year-old would prove to be a “great signing” for Neil Lennon’s side.
Sky Sports revealed yesterday that West Brom are in advanced talks with West Ham over a move for the left-footer that has been deemed surplus to requirements by David Moyes at the London Stadium.
Snodgrass, a £10million signing from Hull City in January 2017, has scored two goals in six appearances this season.
The Glasgow-born midfielder, who rose up the ranks at Livingston, was the subject of a loan offer from Celtic in October but it proved ultimately unsuccessful.

“They need to be clever and sign players that are going to make people buy season tickets for next year. The club need to be careful. Would they pay Snod the kinda money he is on at West Ham?
“If he is let go for nothing I would take him, definitely.”
