Former England international Glen Johnson has revealed that he would be willing to come out of retirement to play for Celtic.
The 34-year-old, who announced he had hung his boots up from the professional game in January earlier this year, spoke to Jim White on talkSPORT, as cited by The Daily Record, about the chances of returning.
Celtic have long-standing issues with their right-back options, and this was discussed on the talk show, as Johnson revealed he would be willing to reverse his decision to compete for the club.
The former Liverpool and Chelsea defender said:
Yeah. I’d get my boots on, no drama.
The Hoops, who recently won their eighth Scottish Premiership title in a row, could be on the lookout for reinforcements on the right-hand side of the defence this summer.
Mikael Lustig and Cristian Gamboa’s respective futures are uncertain, while Jeremy Toljan is poised to return to Borussia Dortmund following his loan.
Despite the steady displays of Anthony Ralston in this role, Celtic may be keen to add a more experienced player to their options at right-back, and Johnson has made himself available.
Other right-backs who Celtic could look to target this summer
Olympiacos star Elabdellaoui would provide Celtic with some attacking prowess and experience on the right-hand side.
Castagne has been excellent for Atalanta this season. He would be an ambitious signing for Celtic.
Almeida could leave Benfica this summer. If he is available on the cheap, he would be an astute signing for Celtic.
Walker-Peters has been impressive when called upon for Tottenham Hotspur. However, question marks remain regarding whether or not they can provide him with sufficient game time.
