Celtic Fc has identify (3) goalkeeper to replace Joe Hart when he retires this year



The big news for Celtic fans today is that Joe Hart has chosen to stop playing professional football at the end of the season.

The former England international has chosen to hang up his cleats after three years of service at Parkhead. During that time, he won two Scottish Premierships, two Scottish League Cups, and one Scottish Cup with Ange Postecoglou’s treble-winning team in 2022/23.

Brendan Rodgers has said that his presence at Parkhead and in the game as a whole will be sadly missed. He has done a lot of great things.

The Irishman told the club’s official media, “For everything he has done in football, Joe deserves huge praise and congratulations. He has been such a great asset to Celtic and the game at the highest levels, both in Ireland and around the world.”

Transfermarkt says Hart has played 138 times for Celtic in all games so far, giving up 128 goals and keeping 59 clean sheets.

Looking ahead, he still has a chance to add a home double to his collection, but there will already be a lot of talk about who might become his replacement.

Caoimhin Kelleher is the clear choice for Celtic

Many people have linked Liverpool goalie Caoimhin Kelleher to Celtic for a number of years, even though he is still struggling to get regular playing time at Anfield.

Even though he is 25 years old now, the Republic of Ireland player has only played 36 times for Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp and has recorded 12 clean sheets [Transfermarkt].

However, the money part of any deal might be hard to work out. Earlier this year, it was said that it could cost up to £20 million to get the man from Cork to leave Merseyside.

The Bhoys are also thought to be unable to afford his weekly salary, which could rule out any loan deal. However, Celtic have been fans of Kelleher’s for a long time.

Andriy Lunin has been linked with a move to Celtic in the past.

Of course, Andriy Lunin, the goalie for Real Madrid, would be the most desirable player for Celtic if they were really interested in signing him. But there is a good reason for including him, so bear with me.

The Ukrainian player has started all five of his team’s La Liga games and has only let in three goals [Fotmob].

Lunin has been linked with a move to the Scottish Premiership winners since October of last year, when The Daily Record reported that Rodgers and his team were looking at him as one of several possible winners to Hart.

After more research, it was found that the 25-year-old has only played 35 times for Real Madrid in six years and is out of contract next summer [Transfermarkt].

There may be a big change in Lunin’s prospects in Madrid once Thibaut Courtois comes back from his long-term anterior cruciate ligament injury [ESPN].

That doesn’t mean Celtic will rush to sign him, but hey, we can dream, right?

There is a long history between Fraser Forster and Celtic.

Forster, a goalkeeper for Tottenham Hotspur, has a long history with Celtic and will always be remembered for his amazing feats in both the English Premier League and Europe over the course of two five-year periods.

The 35-year-old famously got the nickname “La Gran Muralla” for how tough he was against Barcelona in the Champions League. At 6 feet 7 inches, he looked a bit like a man-mountain in the goalframe.

It is reported that the man from Hexham played 234 times for the Bhoys and kept 185 clean sheets.

In the 2019 Scottish League Cup final against Rangers, he made a number of amazing saves to make sure his team won and their name would be engraved on the trophy. It was one of the most memorable acts of individual heroism at the club.

Based on the official page for Celtic FC, Forster also set the record for the longest time without giving up a goal in the Scottish Premiership (1,256 minutes).

He did, however, sign a new contract with his present company that lasts until 2025 in December. Still, the fact that he already had a bond with Celtic makes for some interesting reading [BBC Sport].
