Bookies Price Celtic as Outright Favourites to Sign Joe Hart This Summer

Bookies Price Celtic as Outright Favourites to Sign Joe Hart This Summer

Celtic have emerged as the shock contenders to sign England goalie Joe Hart this summer, after bookies slashed odds on Brendan Rodgers launching a bid for the veteran stopper.

Hart, 31, is currently on-loan at West Ham United after failing to impress Man City boss Pep Guardiola, but has struggled to keep the No.1 spot at the London Stadium and now seems unlikely to stay with the Hammers beyond this month.

Having previously enjoyed a spell with Torino in Serie A, the compilers over at Oddschecker seem to think Hart’s next stop could be the Scottish Premiership, after a flurry of bets wagering the Hoops will make a move.

According to the Sun, Celtic were originally just 16/1 to be Hart’s next club but a sizeable amount of money coming in has seen his odds tumble to just 3/1 – making Celtic the outright favourites.

Given the mammoth wages he’d likely be on, and the fact Celtic signed back-up keeper Scott Bain only just earlier today, a move for Hart might seem unlikely – but the bookies are never wrong, eh?

What do you think of the situation?
