Report: Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers planning to sign Scottish international Robert Snodgrass from Hull City

Newly appointed Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is reportedly keen on securing the services of Robert Snodgrass.

According to a report from the Daily Express, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is planning a swoop for Hull City's attacking midfielder Robert Snodgrass.

Rodgers was recently appointed as manager of Celtic on a 12-month rolling contract and it is widely believed that the club hierarchy is ready to back the Northern Irishman with a transfer kitty of a sizeable £15 million.

As a result, it has been no surprise whatsoever in seeing a number of players being linked with a move to Parkhead over the past few days and now in fresh rumors emerging out of England, claims have been made that Rodgers is considering a move for Hull star Snodgrass.

The Daily Express state that Rodgers has identified Snodgrass as a potential target and will look to sign the Scottish international even if Hull earn promotion into the Premier League.

The former Leeds United man missed the majority of the first half of the season due to injury but has played a crucial role in helping the Tigers reach the Championship play-off final since his return to full fitness.

Whether or not Hull earn promotion into the Premier League remains to be seen but Snodgrass is entering the final year of his contract at the KC Stadium and Celtic certainly stand a good chance of securing the services of the 28-year-old this summer.
