Celtic are reportedly keen to sign goalkeeper Trevor Carson at the end of the season.

According to a recent report from The Sun on Sunday (15/04; page 61), Celtic are planning to rival Cardiff City in the summer and make a move for Motherwell goalkeeper Trevor Carson.

BBC Sport reported in January that the Hoops tried to bring the stopper to Parkhead during the last window, and now The Sun on Sunday suggests that a fresh move may be on the cards.

With Well seventh in the table and on the wrong side of the split in the Scottish Premiership, Carson may have perhaps feared that his chances of earning that move to Celtic may have been harmed. But given the events that transpired at the weekend, perhaps the 30-year-old actually has the ideal opportunity to prove to Brendan Rodgers why he should be a target this summer.

Unfortunately for Carson however, if he does make the most of that chance, he may not be the most popular person amongst the Celtic faithful - as Motherwell are now the side standing between the Hoops and a stunning double Treble.

Well were fantastic in their Scottish Cup semi-final win over Aberdeen on Saturday, while Celtic also found themselves strolling into next month's final as they thrashed Rangers the following day. 

It means that Celtic will have to beat the man that Rodgers deems to be good enough to play for the club if they want to get their hands on the sixth trophy of the Northern Irishman's tenure. If it is anything like the two sides' previous meeting, it will not be an easy task by any means.
