Celtic tipped to consider move for Derby County ace as attention turns to summer transfer window

Published

Celtic should consider making a move for David Marshall this summer, according to former defender Mark Wilson.

The Bhoys were heavily linked with a move for the Derby County goalkeeper last summer, however opted to pursue other targets instead.

A potential move to Parkhead could be hugely appealing for the experienced stopper who started his career with the Scottish giants before pursuing a long, successful career in England.

But after a decent campaign for Wayne Rooney’s side in the Championship this term, former Celtic man Wilson has suggested that Marshall could be the answer to the club’s defensive woes.

Speaking on the Celtic Huddle Podcast, Wilson said: “A name that hasn’t went away from the summer that I think Celtic should go for again, just to get in the door as number one and it would sort out their problem – I think they should go for David Marshall.

“People will say ‘it’s a step backwards, he’s 35 or 36 years old’. But I look across the city and see Allan McGregor coming to Rangers. Was he 38 when he came? 37? I see pictures of him holding the Player of the Year for Scotland trophy.

“I know he’s still got another year to go, but surely Marsh would be up for coming back to Glasgow.”

The verdict

There’s no doubt that this could be a move that makes sense for Celtic.

Moving to Parkhead would be hugely appealing for the Glasgow-born goalkeeper, and that’s why a move could make sense.

Of course Derby County won’t want to lose Marshall after his performances this term but with plenty of changes expected at Pride Park I wouldn’t rule out a move.
