Celtic: Hoops seen as possible suitor for goalkeeper Max Stryjek

Celtic: Hoops seen as possible suitor for goalkeeper Max Stryjek -Celtic News

Celtic could potentially now sign Livingston goalkeeper Max Stryjek in the summer transfer window, according to manager David Martindale.

The Lowdown: Stryjek impresses for Livingston

The 25-year-old has become an influential figure for Livi in the Scottish Premiership this season, helping them to seventh place in the table and being hailed as ‘superb’ by his boss earlier in the campaign.

Stryjek has made 33 league starts in total in 2021/22, winning two Man of the Match awards from WhoScored, outlining his importance to the cause.

It looks likely that the Pole could move on to pastures new this summer and Celtic could be a contender to sign him.

The Latest: Celtic mentioned as suitor

Speaking to The Daily Record, Martindale admitted that Stryjek’s time at Alderstone Road may have come to an end, mentioning the Old Firm clubs as a possible destination for him:

“The unique selling point for anyone who comes into our club is to try and get themselves a move to England or to the Old Firm, or failing that, to the Edinburgh two or Aberdeen, where the wages are substantially more than you’re going to get at Livingston.

“Everybody who comes here uses us as a stepping stone.

“I do believe Max is probably not going to be here, because there is a good bit of interest, so I’ve got to do what’s right for the squad and I think, from what I’ve seen of Ivan, he’s more than capable of being the number one next season.”

From which academies did these Celtic players graduate? Let's get started... Joe Hart is a product of which club?

The Verdict: Good competition for Hart

Celtic could do with having stronger competition for Joe Hart moving forward, especially with the Hoops’ first-choice ‘keeper now 35 years of age.

Stryjek could be exactly that, pushing the Englishman for a starting berth and hopefully getting the very best out of him, in order to keep his place in the team.

At 25, the Livingston man would also come in as a long-term investment, with goalkeepers more than capable of playing all the way through their 30s.

Whether or not Celtic get him remains to be seen, but he ticks all the boxes, in terms of his age, experience and even the fact that he knows the Scottish Premiership inside out.
