Compatriot thinks reported Celtic target ‘would not crumble under the pressure’

Jonathan Gould has told The Sunday Post that David Marshall would be a good signing for Celtic in the summer transfer window.

The former Celtic and Scotland international goalkeeper has raved about Marshall, and believes that he still has five or six years left in him despite being 35 years of age.

According to The Herald, the Hoops are interested in the Scotland international, who himself is open to the possibility of returning to Celtic Park, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

Gould told The Sunday Post: “David Marshall also must be considered as a serious option. He has been in fantastic form for Wigan all season, particularly since the turn of the year.

“Nobody is sure yet what is going to happen at that club, but David may well become available.

“I remember him when he was a kid coming through the ranks at Celtic. He has had a fine career for the last 15 or 16 years.

“He has five or six years left in him, and having played for his country 33 times, would not crumble under the pressure.”

Good signing for Celtic?

With Craig Gordon having already left Celtic in the summer transfer window, manager Neil Lennon needs to bring in at least a new goalkeeper.

Moreover, Fraser Forster has also returned to his parent club Southampton after a successful loan spell at the Hoops last season.

Marshall started his professional club football career at Celtic, and the Scotland international knows all about the pressure at the club, especially in a season where they will be aiming to make it 10 Scottish Premiership titles in a row.

With Wigan Athletic going into administration, the English club may be open to selling Marshall for a relatively low transfer fee.
