Celtic fans react as club reportedly in talks to sign Steven Fletcher

Celtic have reportedly initiated talks with the representatives of free agent striker Steven Fletcher after the target man’s contract expired at Sheffield Wednesday – and Hoops fans have responded on Twitter.

Fletcher, a 33-time Scotland international, was in excellent form last season – scoring 13 goals in 27 Championship outings for Wednesday. But with the Owls in a difficult financial situation, he has left on a free transfer.

The 33-year-old almost joined Celtic back in 2009 from Hibernian, only for his first club to reject a move to the Hoops. Now, 11 years on, he could be on his way to Parkhead as the Hoops look to secure 10 in a row.

The Daily Record claim Celtic have initiated talks with Fletcher’s agents. The Hoops are desperate to sign a striker, with Ivan Toney and Albian Ajeti of Peterborough and West Ham linked – but Fletcher represents the cheap option.

Fletcher has enjoyed an excellent career down south, scoring goals for Burnley, Wolves and Wednesday – as well as French club Marseille during a loan spell. Now, a return to his home country could be on the cards.

Celtic supporters reacted on Twitter to the news that Fletcher could be signed on a free, and some Hoops fans think he would be a good addition to Lennon’s side with the 2020-21 campaign already underway.
