It is no secret that Celtic need to sign a goalkeeper next summer. In fact, they might need to bring in multiple. One who is certain to leave is the club's number one between the posts, Joe Hart. The Englishman has been a starter for the Hoops since 2021 but will be retiring at the end of this season. Scott Bain's contract is also in its final few months while Benjamin Siegrist is also expected to leave after two uneventful campaigns since his move to Glasgow as a free agent.

Celtic have been linked with high-profile goalkeepers like Caoimhin Kelleher and Andriy Lunin. Signing either of them would be almost impossible for the Hoops.

So, they might need to look elsewhere. And Scotland number one, Angus Gunn, could be a solid option to replace Hart as the club's first-choice goalkeeper.

Gunn is currently at Norwich City, where he has a little over a year left on his contract. If they fail to win promotion to the Premier League, the Scotland international leaving would be very much a possibility and an option that the Hoops should definitely consider.

Barry Ferguson seems to believe that Gunn would be a good choice for Celtic. As reported by Football Scotland, when a caller to Go Radio's Football Show suggested the name, the former Rangers skipper said:

"Yeah, it's a good shout. I didn't think he had the best of games against the Netherlands but he's certainly impressed me since coming into the international spot.

"He's a good goalkeeper and he's playing at a good level down there. But it will all depend if they do get into the play-offs and get into the Premier League because there's no way it's going to cross his mind to leave Norwich.

"But if they don't get promoted then I think it could be one that Celtic would certainly would look at because he's a very good goalkeeper."

Now, Gunn would not be the most high-profile addition for Celtic, especially when you compare him to Hart, who is an absolute Premier League legend. But he could be a sensible signing.

Gunn has been a steady presence in goal for Norwich City, who always seem to be in the mix for promotion. Also, at 28 years of age, he is entering his prime and could be a starter for Celtic for more than half-a-decade to come if they do end up signing him.
