Michel Vorm is the potentially perfect Celtic goalkeeper option adored by Brendan Rodgers – TBR View

Celtic need a new stopper and the Dutchman is soon to be a free agent.

Celtic need a new goalkeeper this summer after the conclusion of Fraser Forster’s loan deal and Craig Gordon’s contract expiry. 

The Bhoys have since been linked with a host of potential goalkeeping additions, including the likes of Joe Hart, David Marshall, and Freddie Woodman. 

But should Celtic instead be looking at a goalkeeper who will become a free agent when the Premier League season concludes, and one Brendan Rodgers would certainly approve of. 

 

Michel Vorm is the player in question. The Dutchman is contracted to Tottenham Hotspur until the end of the Premier League campaign at which point the 15-cap Netherlands international will be available for nothing.

The 36-year-old has amassed plenty of experience playing at the top level in Britain. He starred at Swansea City until becoming the back-up option to Hugo Lloris at Tottenham.

It was former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers who first lured Vorm to England from Utrecht and Neil Lennon’s predecessor is a huge fan of the Dutchman. 

Speaking in 2011, Rodgers was quoted by Goal as calling Vorm ‘superb’ and ‘very accomplished’ after the stopper’s starring displays for the Welsh club. 

There are not many good options available to Celtic this summer but Vorm is near the top of the list when it comes to affordable and reliable goalkeeping options. 

Along with Rodgers’ seal of approval, Celtic could do a lot worse.
