Celtic: Fans react as James McCarthy expresses desire to play for club

Crystal Palace midfielder, James McCarthy, has revealed in an interview with The Daily Record that he longs to pull on the famous green and white hoops of Celtic before he hangs up his boots.

Should Celtic re-sign Victor Wanyama?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The former Hamilton player is a lifelong Bhoys fan and has fond memories of sampling games against Rangers when he was younger:

“I’ve always been a Celtic fan; all my family are Celtic fans. From when I was born, I’ve had the Celtic strips. Obviously as a kid, you’re always watching. We’d go and watch the games. My brothers used to take me”.

“I went to quite a lot of them (games against Rangers). I was younger, maybe eight or nine. I’d always be at the game. It’s an amazing atmosphere, an incredible atmosphere and one that you really enjoy”.

McCarthy signed for Palace this summer having found himself out of favour at Everton, and it is the third time he has found himself in the same midfield as Scotland international James McArthur – a commentator’s nightmare.

McCarthy has had a solid Premier League career with over 200 appearances and, with nearly 100 Scottish Premiership games also under his belt, he should have no problems returning to Scotland.

These Celtic fans took to Twitter to suggest that McCarthy had missed the boat.
