“Everything was finished” Celtic Fc were on the verge of signing the 36-year-old Premier League winner.

Since winning the Premier League with Leicester City, Danny Simpson’s life hasn’t been easy.

Ever since he left Bristol City last summer, the right defender has had a tough time finding a new club. After leaving Leicester City, he was a free agent twice before.
Being a free agent is troublesome in and of itself, but having a deal fall through makes it unbearable.

While appearing on Filthy Fellas, Simpson spoke up about his long history of club hopping, including a near-signing with Celtic following his departure from Leicester.

Almost signing with the Scottish giants was something the right-back mentioned.

Sometimes that’s just how things operate, and it’s crazy. Something transpired with Celtic, and as a result, I lost communication with my agency. For that reason, I declined the second offer. “I had conversations with Neil Lennon and others about Celtic, and it was a great opportunity for European football and additional trophies; I also had conversations with Kolo Toure and Brendan about it, but in the end, it fell through,” Simpson revealed.

Valued despite the potential danger
It seems like Simpson turned down other offers in pursuit of a move to Celtic Park, and we really don’t blame him.

Any footballer in such predicament would be tempted to join Celtic. It’s a chance to perform in front of a massive audience in the most prestigious tournaments. There were rumors going around at the time that the Bhoys even offered him a trial.

It would appear that Simpson still harbors remorse for his failed attempt to secure a transfer to Glasgow; thus, he has been in a state of footballing limbo for the past few year
