Many Celtic fans have been discussing a news update about Declan Gallagher that recently emerged on social media.
The Daily Record have recently reported about Gallagher, saying that he has rejected the chance to move to the MLS, despite strong interest in the United States. The defender didn’t feel that a move to the US would be worth it to uproot his family, especially since he has become a dad recently.
The report also states that clubs in Scotland and in the Championship are also interested in him. The 30-year-old though, has previously been linked with a Parkhead move and it was stated that he was hoping to force a dream move to Celtic.
Is Gallagher good enough for Celtic?
The update about the Motherwell defender was relayed on Facebook by Read Celtic. Many Hoops supporters made their views clear about him.
What did Celtic fans make of the news about Gallagher?
The Times have also previously linked Celtic with a move for Gallagher, saying that he could well be seen as a partner for Christopher Jullien at the back. Gallagher’s Motherwell teammate Stephen O’Donnell has also been linked with a Parkhead move.
The 30-year-old Gallagher has made 24 Premiership appearances for Motherwell this season, while playing at centre-back and scoring once and assisting once too. He is currently his club’s highest-rated player in the campaign, now that David Turnbull is at Celtic.
Some of these Celtic fans would like to see Gallagher at Parkhead, while others don’t want their club to sign the Scotsman.
The 30-year-old clearly offers Premiership experience. With Kristoffer Ajer being linked with Milan and Hatem Abd Elhamed having left the club, the Hoops may need more options at the back. Shane Duffy is only at Celtic on a temporary basis, which shows the need for reliable centre-back options.
Gallagher offers the experience of having played in the division and since his contract runs out in the summer, he would be a free signing. So Celtic should look to sign him in the summer.
