James McClean has reminded people that he wants to play for Celtic one day, claiming it would be a dream to feature for the Hoops.

McClean was playing at Celtic Park on Sunday in Scott Brown’s testimonial, the second time he has played there, and he didn’t shy away from admitting he wants to be a Celtic player before he retires.

Speaking to Celtic TV after the game, the Republic of Ireland international was ecstatic at being given the chance to play in the game:

Being a huge Celtic fan, and coming here today on this occasion that it was, I was delighted to be on the pitch playing.

The 27-year-old made 30 appearances for West Brom this season as they were relegated from the Premier League and hopes to help them back up next season.

However, he received a great reception in the game and said he wanted to play for the Hoops:

That’s always been the dream. Unfortunately that’s not up to me. If it was up to me it would have happened a long time ago.

The winger looks likely to be part of Darren Moore’s plans as manager. He played all of his six games in charge to end the season.
