Celtic Fans Excited at the Prospect of Bringing in QPR Defender Steven Caulker

Celtic are being linked with a move for QPR defender Steven Caulker, with reports claiming Brendan Rodgers is keen on bringing the Englishman to Celtic Park.

The 25-year-old has played under Rodgers before, while the pair were at Swansea together, and it’s thought he could offer the sort of experience that would fill the void left by injured centre-back Dedryck Boyata.

Caulker started his career at Tottenham, however, he spent the majority of his White Hart Lane career out on loan with Yeovil Town and Bristol City, before linking up with Rodgers at the Liberty Stadium.

He was eventually sold to Cardiff City and then to current club QPR, who have sent him for spells at Southampton and Liverpool.

However it seems most Hoops fans are eager to see what the 25-year-old could do in Scotland, especially with what Rodgers has achieved with players who have struggled down south:

 

Caulker sat down with the Guardian last month and spoke about his struggles with mental illness – something which he admits has directly affected his football career.

However, the powerful defender now says he is ready for his next challenge.

He said, “Now I feel good mentally and I want the chance to show people, including my son, what I am truly capable of. Wherever the opportunity arises.”

Would you like to see Caulker as your next summer arrival, Celtic fans?
