Vaclav Hladky is a player in demand, with Steven Gerrard’s Rangers and Neil Lennon’s Celtic reportedly interested in signing the goalkeeper.
According to The Sunday Post, Rangers are interested in bringing Hladky to Ibrox in the summer transfer window, while Celtic are admirers of the 29-year-old.
Hladky is a free agent at the moment, having left St. Mirren at the end of this past season.
St. Mirren goalkeeping coach Jamie Langfield has sent an emotional message to the 29-year-old Czech goalkeeper on Twitter.
Langfield has raved about Hladky, stating that he is the best goalkeeper he has ever worked with in his entire career.
Langfield wrote on Twitter: “You’ll be missed buddie. One of the nicest persons I’ve ever met in football, also the BEST goalkeeper I’ve ever worked with in my whole career.
“I like every other St.mirren fan will miss you and wish you the best in your next move. It’s been a pleasure b****g. @VaclavHladky“
Rangers and Celtic need a new goalkeeper
Allan McGregor is the first-choice goalkeeper at Rangers, and that is not going to change next season.
However, with Wes Foderingham having left the Gers this summer, manager Gerrard does need to bring in an able back-up.
Craig Gordon is out of contract at Celtic and Fraser Forster has returned to his parent club Southampton after a loan spell at the Hoops this past season.
Celtic manager Lennon does need at least one quality goalkeeper, and Hladky would be a good signing, especially on a free transfer.
