If Celtic are to race far ahead of their fierce rivals, Rangers, they must try to sign the best players that are available to them. Their former midfielder, Ki Sung-Yeung is now available following the expiration of his contract at Swansea City.
The 29-year-old’s contract with Swansea City ran out after their demotion to the English second tier Championship, and the South Korean midfielder could prove to be signing Celtic need to fortify their domestic superiority.
While Celtic have not been linked with an interest in the experienced midfielder, the Bhoys should take advantage of his availability and see if the 29-year-old would consider returning to Parkhead.
The South Korean international experienced a decent campaign with Swansea, despite the Welsh side’s relegation. Ki scored two goals and provided two assists for the Swans.

Since his exit from Celtic Park at the end of the 2011-12 season, the midfielder recorded 160 appearances for Swansea, picking up 12 goals along the way.
Ki is renowned for his shooting skills, especially from long-distance. Furthermore, he is especially useful from dead-ball situations. He is also highly regarded for his unwavering concentration and intelligent understanding of the game. The 29-year-old is cautious and doesn’t commit needless errors.
Despite the success that Scott Brown and Olivier Ntcham have achieved at the central park, the opportunity to make additions of experienced and talented players shouldn’t be overlooked by Brendan Rodgers. At the age of 29, Ki is approaching the peak of his career, and he could prove to be an exceedingly significant signing for the Scottish Champions.
Given the fact that Ki is now a free agent, the opportunity to sign a player of his calibre and experience should be irresistible for Brendan Rodgers.
