A week ago it was reported that Celtic might be keen on signing Scotland international Robert Snodgrass. The Daily Express claimed that Brendan Rodgers was keen on signing the player this summer.

Snodgrass is well known for being an avid Celtic fan and the lure of playing for the Bhoys would certainly be tempting.

He has spoken about a potential move to Celtic this weekend, after winning promotion to the Premier League with Hull City in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.

He told the Glasgow Evening Times that he was pleased to see Rodgers at the club, but that he is still focusing on a future with Hull:

“A new manager has gone into Celtic and it’s great for Scottish football, I have to say. But, for myself, I am a Hull City player. The supporters have been terrific for me. I have a three-year contract and I’m going to give this club every drop I have until I’m told otherwise.

“I have been through so much. These team-mates of mine are brilliant. I have great rapport with them and I love going into training every day. We go in with a smile on our faces. I can’t control what happens outside the club. The only thing I can control is what happens here and I have loved every second of Hull.”

Snodgrass, who returned to action after over a year out in December after suffering a dislocated kneecap, probably feels he still owes Hull as he had played just 32 times for the club since signing for them in August 2014.

Celtic would love to bring a player like the 16 time Scotland international but playing in the Premier League with Hull City looks like being his only prerogative at the moment.
