Former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has left the door open on a sensational move to Celtic after pulling on the Hoops at the weekend. Gabby, 31, is without a club after leaving Aston Villa in the summer and took part in Stan Petrov’s Match for Cancer on Saturday which saw a whole host of footballers and celebrities descend on Glasgow. The striker managed to get on the scoresheet with Celtic legend Henrik Larsson setting him up.
The player looked sharp, leading some fans calling for Brendan Rodgers to sign him on a short-term basis for cover after Moussa Dembele left on the final day of the window. Asked if he would be interested in a move to Celtic, the Englishman left no doubt about his thoughts.
“I think every player if they had the chance to play for Celtic, would take it.
When the Celtic fans start singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ it has always given me goosebumps just watching it on TV — so it would be something else to actually play in it.
Can you imagine playing in front of 60,000 people inside this place? I told one of the lads I’d get sent off in the first minute due to the adrenalin and sheer excitement!”
“I’ll try and speak to Brendan Rodgers and we’ll see what happens!”
Gabby has spent most of his career at Aston Villa with short stints at Watford and Sheffield Wednesday. He also has three England caps to his name.
