Celtic fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The Scottish Premiership giants have been linked with a move for the former Germany international in the summer transfer window.

The Scotsman reported on Saturday about Celtic’s alleged interest in the United midfielder.

The publication quoted ‘Various’ (sources) as claiming that the Bhoys could be in the hunt for Schweinsteiger if they are able to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League this season.

According to Skybet, Celtic have been given odds of 8/1 to secure the services of the former Bayern Munich star this summer (click here to read more).

The Bhoys are the fourth favourites to sign Schweinsteiger, according to Skybet, after Bayern, Schalke and any MLS club.

While Celtic are a big club and could feature in the group stage of the Champions League this season, it is hard to see Brendan Rodgers’s side make a move for the 32-year-old this summer.

United could ask for a decent transfer fee, and the wages of the 2014 World Cup winner would be quite high.
