Celtic have been urged to sign currently unattached winger Robbie Brady

The 29-year-old has been without a club since his Burnley contract expired earlier this year. 

Formerly of Manchester United’s famed academy, Burnley broke their own transfer record to sign the ace in a £13million back in 2017 (Guardian). 

Speaking on the Record Celtic podcast, as cited on Twitter, journalist Matthew Fulton suggested that the Hoops would be wise to finally make a move for the Irishman. 

If Celtic can go and get him, it looks like a no-brainer. If they can go and get him, I wouldn’t see why they wouldn’t. He’s an available player in a role they need to fill. My only thought is that he might be holding out for something. Is he 29? He’s in his peak. So if they can go and get him, yeah, but it might be an expensive gamble because unfortunately, the going rate now for a pretty bog-standard full-back in England at that level is probably about £40k a week.

Capped 57 times by the Republic of Ireland at senior level, Brady has been a superb servant to both club and country. 

Amassing 160 Premier League appearances across spells with Burnley, Norwich and Hull City, the 2016 Irish Footballer of the Year managed 19 top-flight outings last season before being released.

Signing Brady would certainly make an abundance of sense all things considered. 

Ange Postecoglou’s side are in need of more creativity and the ace’s wand-like left-foot would offer top quality service to Jota, Kyogo Furuhash and Liel Abada. 

Capable of playing on either wing and as a makeshift left-back, the squad would receive multiple positional boosts with one arrival. 

Still holding a market value of £2.7million despite his free-agent status (Transfermarkt), the Hoops would be wise not to pass up such an opportunity.
