Stuart McCall offers his verdict on reported Celtic target Colin Kazim-Richards

Celtic are reportedly interested in signing Colin Kazim-Richards from Feyenoord on transfer deadline day.

Former Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told The Daily Record that Colin Kazim-Richards would be a good signing for Celtic.

According to a report in The Daily Record over the weekend, Scottish Premiership giants Celtic are interested in signing the 29-year-old striker from Feyenoord.

It was reported by the Scottish publication that Dutch side Feyenoord are willing to let Kazim-Richards leave, with the Bhoys claimed to be assessing a move for him.

McCall, who worked with the former Bursaspor striker at Sheffield United, believes that the Turkey international would prove to be a good signing for Celtic.

“Kazim has a bit about him as a character,” the former Rangers boss told The Daily Record. “I’m sure he scored a winner in the Istanbul derby – and they’re as hotly contested as any game. If Celtic get him they will get a player who can handle most situations. Nothing will faze him.”

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 55 points from 23 matches. Ronny Deila’s side are six points clear of second-placed Aberdeen and look set to win the league title yet again this season.

The Bhoys, who suffered a 3-1 defeat to Ross County in the semi-finals of the Scottish League Cup on Sunday afternoon, will take on Aberdeen away from home in the league on Wednesday evening.
