Former Celtic forward Chris Sutton has told the Daily Record podcast that Neil Lennon should consider signing goalkeeper David Marshall, following his Wigan’s relegation.
Marshall, now 35, started his career at Parkhead in 2002, making 35 appearances for the Bhoys before moving south of the border. He went on to play for Norwich City, Cardiff, and Hull during his time, representing Cardiff on 37 occasions in the Premier League during 2013/14.
The stopper is now one of a number of Wigan players being linked with the exit door at the DW Stadium after the Latics were forced into administration and relegated into League One thanks to the subsequent points deduction.

A senior Scotland international on 33 occasions, Marshall possesses bags of experience, and Sutton, a former Celtic man of over 100 appearances, belives his experience could still be beneficial to Neil Lennon’s squad.
With Fraser Forster heading back to his parent club Southampton for the 2020/21 campaign, Lennon has already brought in 26-year-old Greek keeper Vasilis Barkas as his number one.
However, with Craig Gordon departing to Hearts, the Hoops may need another adequate understudy and Marshall could be the perfect fit. With only 12 months left of his contract at Wigan and with the club in dire financial need, it is likely any offer for the former Celtic man would be accepted and a return to Celtic Park could be imminent.
