Celtic fans aren’t crazy about the idea of having John Guidetti back at Paradise.
Quoted by The Daily Record, former Celtic striker John Guidetti recently admitted that he might return to the Scottish Premiership champions one day.
The Sweden striker scored 15 goals from 21 starts in all competitions during a season-long loan at Paradise from Manchester City in the 2014-15 campaign.
The 24-year-old then rejected the chance to join the Bhoys on a permanent basis, instead signing for La Liga side Celta Vigo in a move which saw him score 12 times in Spain’s top flight last season.
Because of the snub, Celtic supporters on Twitter don’t seem too crazy about the prospect of seeing the Swede – currently at Euro 2016 – in green and white again any time soon.
Guidetti mustn’t be enjoying his time in Spain as much as he thought he would.

Maxi added: “He’s pish shouting about pumping the huns done f**k all. Do you remember??? There is ever going to be 1SuperstarSwed.” While another unforgiving fan wrote: “He was not Celtic class & never would be & he was a lazy b**tard too so f**k him no 2nd chances Guidetti.”
The fact of the matter is that Celtic do not need him either; not when Leigh Griffiths became the first Hoops hitman to score 40 times in a campaign since Henrik Larsson following a goal-laden 2015-16 season for the lethal Scot.
Griffiths is deadly and, under Brendan Rodgers, he will be hoping to improve even more next season.
