Charlie Austin has revealed he would love to play for Celtic and the West Brom striker was close to replacing Gary Hooper.

Austin was once a player that Hoops fans would have loved to see play in the Green and White.

The £4 million hitman has scored 8 goals this season at Championship level, Austin is still only 30 years of age and has proved that he can still find the back of the net.

Opinion Time

Austin had his chance to come to Glasgow and win trophies with Celtic and if he wanted the move as much as he has said, then it would have happened.

Celtic doesn’t need a 30 year old who might score a few goals here and there, at the minute he wouldn’t get in the squad with Lennon already having Bayo and Klimala waiting in the wing.
