Gabby Agbonlahor wants Celtic to sign him

Gabby Agbonlahor has issued a ‘come and get me plea’ of sorts to Celtic, as he admits he’s keen on moving to the Hoops.

The former Aston Villa man is currently a free agent after leaving the Midlands side and is still on the hunt for his next club.

The Englishman played in Saturday’s charity game between Team Petrov and Team Milner, and the Celtic Park atmosphere has clearly whet his appetite.

Speaking after the 3-3 draw, Agbonlahor said:

“At the moment I’m a free agent and considering my options. I want to do what is best for me and my family. I’ll discuss things with my agent and we’ll decide what happens next. Every player if they had the chance to play for Celtic would take it.”

“If the opportunity comes for me to play in Scotland and the move is right for me and my family then I would certainly look at it. I’m raring to go. I feel fit and I have been keeping myself ticking over.”

Brendan Rodgers is thought to be looking for reinforcements in the striking department, with only really Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths available.

A third striker to help cover the pair would be ideal to help manage what will again be a busy season, with a trophy push both domestically and on the European front.
