Ian Wright on his one big Celtic regret, blames teammate

Celtic Champions League

Former Arsenal striker says he has one big regret from his time at Celtic.

Retiring as Arsenal's record goalscorer, before Thierry Henry later eclipsed him, Ian Wright has few reasons to be regretful in his career.

Now a media pundit, the striker, speaking ahead of England's clash with Scotland, admits he has one, and it relates to his time at Celtic.

Wright played only eight matches for the SPL side in 1999/2000, and says he is disappointed he never scored against rivals Rangers - but believes it was possible.

He told The Sun: "I played eight games for Celtic at the end of my career and that was a fantastic experience.

"I would even have got a goal in an Old Firm game, too, if Eyal Berkovic had squared it when he had the chance."

Wright's time at Celtic was not entirely well received however, playing under the failed management of John Barnes, arguably the club's worst ever boss.

He later left the club to sign with Burnley, before retiring.
