Scott McDonald delivers Celtic verdict as Scottish giants join hunt for in-demand Sunderland man

Scott McDonald has cast doubt over whether Charlie Wyke is ready for a move to Celtic.

Reports from The Celtic Huddle have claimed that the Sunderland striker is being monitored ahead of a potential summer move to Parkhead.

Wyke has enjoyed a wonderful season for the Black Cats in which he has scored 30 goals for the club as they continue to challenge for promotion to the Championship.

However with his contract due to expire at the end of the season, it means that the 28-year-old’s future is far from certain.

Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie has claimed that Nottingham Forest, Cardiff City, Millwall and Middlesbrough are all contenders to sign the player, however any interest from Scottish giants Celtic is bound to be appealing.

However according to former striker Scott McDonald, there are doubts over whether he’s the man to progress the Bhoys.

Speaking on The Celtic Huddle Podcast, McDonald said: “Charlie was a young boy at Middlesbrough coming through when I first signed under Gordon Strachan. He’s got a pedigree in the lower leagues.

“Whether or not that crosses over to Celtic, I’m not quite sure he would be a first-choice pick but he’s very robust, a Lyndon Dykes type, and one of the best players in League One.

“I’m not sure if he’s a Celtic signing.”
