“Welcome to Celtic. A good player” – Fans react to reported new deal


Celtic have been linked with an interest in Switzerland defender Fabian Schar in the summer transfer window.

According to reports from Spanish news publication El Desmarque, Schar is expected to depart Deportivo La Coruna in the summer after the club suffered relegation into the second tier of Spanish football.

Schar has a relegation release clause which stands at £3.5 million. Celtic are reportedly desperate to sign him, and at that price, a move for him is a no-brainer.

The 26-year-old is a regular figure in the Swiss national team and has played 40 games for his country.

Given how inflated the market is, if Celtic can acquire Schar it would be a major coup for them.

Schar impressed in the World Cup against Brazil as Switzerland drew 1-1 last Sunday. He was a rock all through the game, and if that performance is anything to go by, Brendan Rodgers shouldn’t take him off the market.

He is a solid defender with a huge experience. He would be a great addition to the Celtic squad and if the Bhoys can convince him to join them for that price, it would represent a masterstroke signing for Rodgers.
