Flop keeper Vasilis Barkas has revealed he would advise any keeper not to sign for his former club Celtic.

The Greek shot-stopper was voted Player of the Month for the Eredivisie after a string of impressive displays for Utrecht, the club he joined last summer after making a loan move permanent.

Barkas will go down as one of the Hoops' most disastrous signings after Celtic released him and he ended up costing the club £281,000 per league game after they signed him from AEK Athens for £4.5 million.

But although he believes there were mitigating circumstances for the move not working out, he admitted he wouldn't sell the club to any keeper.

Barkas said: "At Celtic, I didn't feel like I was an important part of the team.

"But maybe it wasn't even the team's fault. It was a Covid year, everything was different.

"For the first six months I didn't know my teammates, we were all in different dressing rooms.

"Celtic are a huge club, but I wouldn't recommend to any goalkeeper to go there."

Meanwhile, Hellas Verona are the latest Italian club to consider a loan move for Celtic defender Gustaf Lagerbielke, according to a report.

The Swedish defender only arrived from Elfsborg in Glasgow in the summer for a fee of around £3.5m.

However, the 23-year-old has struggled for game time under Brendan Rodgers and he could well be headed for the Parkhead exit door already.

He's fallen behind Cameron Carter-Vickers, Maik Nawrocki, Liam Scales and Stephen Welsh in the pecking order at centre-back. He's also had injury issues to contend with.

And the Daily Record states that Verona are the latest Serie A club to register an interest in the defender. It's said that Genoa and Leece are also keen.

Rodgers could look to move Lagerbielke out this month in order to free up room in the wage budget.
