Celtic fans want Brendan Rodgers to sign Conor Hourihane from Aston Villa

Celtic fans have been impressed by Conor Hourihane's comments about Glasgow Rangers.

Celtic supporters have suggested that Brendan Rodgers signs Conor Hourihane, after he publicly stated that he hated Glasgow Rangers this week.

Hourihane was asked if there was a football team which he particularly disliked in an interview, and he responded by saying that he despised Rangers.

Hourihane’s comments have obviously gone down well with Celtic fans, who now want the Bhoys to make a bid for the Aston Villa midfielder.

Hourihane would actually enhance Celtic’s attacking options, if he was to move to Glasgow.

The Republic of Ireland international has been in superb form for Villa this season, and is one of the Championship’s most highly regarded midfielders.

Hourihane has been a frequent scorer in England’s second tier with both Barnsley and Villa, and has established himself as a vital player for Steve Bruce’s side.

If Hourihane was to move to Celtic he would be in competition with the likes of Stuart Armstrong and Tom Rogic for a place in Rodgers’ starting line-up.
