Celtic: Agbonlahor reacts to Brady rumours

Celtic: Agbonlahor reacts to Brady rumours -Celtic

Football Insider and talkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor has been reacting to rumours linking Celtic with a move for free agent Robbie Brady.

The Lowdown: Celtic links

Brady has been without a club since his Burnley deal expired at the end of May.

The Irishman was discussed by Ange Postecoglou last month but has been linked with moves to Turkish side Gaziantep and Championship side Swansea City since then.

However, rumours of a move to Celtic Park emerged, with reports last week claiming Celtic are the front runners to secure the 29-year-old’s services.

Should Celtic move for Brady?

Yes, get him in!

Yes, get him in!

No, don't need him!

No, don't need him!

The Latest: Agbonlahor reacts

Agbonlahor was asked by Football Insider in a story on Wednesday afternoon if the Hoops should pursue a deal for the 35-goal free agent.

This is what he had to say in reply, believing he doesn’t see Celtic bringing Brady to Glasgow.

“He’s not done it.

“Every time I watched him play for Burnley, he’s come off injured.

“I don’t see Celtic touching that, to be honest. It’s a big problem when you’re a free agent coming up to October. The season will have been going on for two and a half months.

“It’s worrying times if you’re a free agent now. It means that nobody wants you, to be honest. You’re going to have to get a deal that’s not what you want because you’re desperate.

“When you’ve been injured and not been in good form, it’s not easy to find a club.”

The Verdict: Ange must want him

Celtic signed free agent James McCarthy over the summer, however, it has since emerged that Postecoglou didn’t play a meaningful role in the deal.

The central midfielder has struggled in Postecoglou’s intense training sessions since joining, so if the Hoops are to go after Brady, they need to have their manager’s blessing.

A repeat of the McCarthy deal with Brady could see two experienced professionals warming the Parkhead bench on big money, not exactly ideal for Celtic.
