Could Brendan Rodgers appointment at Celtic bring Hal Robson-Kanu to Glasgow?

The Welsh international has been in good form for his nation and is a free agent this summer.

Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is emerging as the number one candidate to take the Celtic job this summer.

The boyhood Celtic fan has been heavily backed this week for the role and it is looking increasingly likely that he will be getting the job at Parkhead.

Rodgers would be an exciting piece of recruitment from Celtic, but what about the recruitment he could do at the club?

One player that would be a potentially shrewd recruit from Celtic if Rodgers did arrive would be Reading and Wales forward Hal Robson-Kanu.

Rodgers helped him through the ranks at the Berkshire club and handed him his professional debut – so their relationship is strong.

Robson-Kanu, who has become a regular in the Welsh national team, is out of contract at the Madejski Stadium this summer and told the BBC recently he will decide on his new club after the European Championships.

Celtic could be ideal. Not only does he know the potential new boss well but he is good enough for the Scottish Premiership and Celtic need some more attacking options – after the failures of Carlton Cole, Stefan Scepovic and Nadir Ciftci, as well as the relative ineffectiveness of Colin Kazim-Richards. He can also operate from out wide, bringing versatility to his game.

Robson-Kanu, with Rodgers at the helm, could be the perfect option for Celtic.
