Jimmy Bullard reveals he could have signed for Celtic

How would the 36-year-old have fared at the Scottish champions?

Jimmy Bullard has revealed on Twitter that he could have signed for Celtic, suggesting he regrets not signing for the Scottish Premiership giants.

Indeed, when asked on social media by a follower if there was a club he could have signed for but didn't and whether he regrets it, the former midfielder named the Scottish champions.

The 36-year-old enjoyed a career that took him to a great number of different clubs, although he never made the move north to Scotland.

Injury impeded him at a number of those sides and Bullard hints that the 'magic sponge' again played its part in him not joining up with the Bhoys.

Bullard is known more as an entertainer now than he is a former footballer - but he certainly had a superb range of passing and eye for a sensational strike back in his playing days.

All eyes for Celtic now will naturally be on Tuesday night's Champions League play-off second leg against Malmo. Will the Bhoys do what they couldn't manage last season and make it to the group stages? They have a 3-2 lead going into the return leg.
