Reading have been extremely disappointing in the Sky Bet Championship this season, with Jaap Stam’s side struggling to rediscover the form that led them within 90 minutes of promotion last year.
Very few have come out of the opening months of the season with any praise, but Liam Moore has once again been impressive in the heart of defence.
The 24-year-old is reportedly on the radar of Celtic, after impressing during his time with Reading in the Championship.
With that in mind, our writers assess whether Moore would be a good signing for Celtic…
He’d be a great signing for Celtic.
The Glasgow giants are desperately short in that area and Moore has all the attributes to suit their style.
Brendan Rodgers has proven over the years that he can significantly improve younger players and working with him, which combined with European football might be enough to convince the Reading man to move.
Celtic have a knack of picking up players from the Championship and turning them into stars, probably because of the inferior level of the Scottish top-flight.
Moore is a good player who would excel in the SPFL, but I think Rodgers could probably target better players.
What a signing this would be for Celtic.
Liam Moore has been Reading’s most consistent performer this season and his presence at the heart of the defence is so important to Jaap Stam’s side.
The former Leicester man rarely puts a foot wrong, and has all the attributes to become a star at Celtic.
If anything, he’s too good for the SPFL and deserves Premier League football.
Despite Reading’s poor form this season Moore has had a good campaign and it’d be a real blow if he was to leave.
The Royals will try to keep him as much as possible but the pull of playing for a club like Celtic could be too much.
