The Crystal Palace stopper would be an excellent acquisition for Celtic this summer.

Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers will surely be looking to bolster his squad with the signing of an established goalkeeper before the new Scottish Premiership campaign kicks off, following some questionable displays from Craig Gordon over the past six months or so.

With this in mind, Celtic should consider a move for Eagles stopper Wayne Hennessey, who has just 12 months remaining on his current deal at Selhurst Park.

The 30-year-old Welshman performed to an incredibly consistent standard in the Premier League last term, and showcased the cool and composed nature in which he conducts himself on the football pitch.

Standing at 6ft 6in tall, Hennessey carries a certain kind of aura, and commands his penalty area with a great sense of authority, which has a wonderfully calming effect on his defenders.

With 68 caps for Wales already under his belt, the Palace man has proven that his quality is enduring, and he would undoubtedly improve the Glasgow giants this season.

After going the entire domestic campaign unbeaten last term, Celtic will have their work cut-out this time around, with every other team in the division even more determined to take their scalp.

And with just 12 months remaining on his contract with the south London outfit, the Hoops could secure themselves a real bargain, with Palace unlikely to risk losing him for nothing next year, if he fails to agree terms on a new deal with them this summer.
