Former Celtic goalkeeper David Marshall would be keen on making a move back to Parkhead this summer after his current club, Wigan Athletic, went into administration.

The Herald reports that Wigan are prepared to accept a cut-price offer for the shot-stopper due to their current financial situation and that Marshall is apparently keen on returning to Glasgow as his family are still based there and he has been commuting this season to represent the Latics in the Championship.

The Scotland international has played for Norwich City, Cardiff City, Hull City and Wigan since he departed Celtic as a 22-year-old.

The goalkeeper position is seemingly top of the priority list for Celtic this upcoming transfer window following the loss of Craig Gordon and the news that Fraser Forster will be at staying ar Southampton to fight for his place.


The unfortunate news that Wigan have gone into administration will almost certainly mean that they will have to sell some of their first-team players.

With only one year left of his contract and with his age being a factor, Marshall could be available at a very affordable price.

The 35-year-old was born in Glasgow and came through the youth ranks at Celtic, before spending five years in the first-team, so the club is in his heart.

He wouldn’t be a long-term option for Neil Lennon, but Marshall is still performing at a good level and has proven that he can still do a good job whilst the Hoops figure out a longer-term solution to their goalkeeping issues.
