According to The Scottish Sun, Dorus de Vries will leave Celtic this summer when his current contract runs out.

It has been reported that the 38-year-old Dutch goalkeeper will not be handed a new contract, and that he will part company with the Hoops at the end of the season.

Disappointing Celtic spell

De Vries joined Celtic in the summer of 2016 after leaving Nottingham Forest in the Championship in England.

The 38-year-old was brought to Celtic Park by then Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, who had worked with the Dutch at Swansea City.

The goalkeeper was supposed to be part of Rodgers’s vision of playing out from the back, but he did not perform too well between the posts and looked shaky on occasions.

The Dutchman soon lost his place to Craig Gordon, and it does not come as a surprise that the Hoops will reportedly not renew his contract and will let him leave this summer for free.

As stated on Celtic’s office website, De Vries has made only 14 starts and just one substitute appearance in all competitions for the Hoops so far.
