Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

He also played a few Premier League games for recently, which might be a reflection of his current quality as a goalkeeper.

So if the Hoops want to sign the 29-year-old, it might not be a bad move at all. He earns £35,000 per week at Brighton and considering Celtic’s wage structure, it might be something they can afford.
