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.
