Despite numerous goalkeepers being linked with the vacant spot at Celtic Park, the club has yet to secure a replacement.

Martin Dubravka, who recently exited in the Euros, has been frequently mentioned as a potential candidate. His performance in the tournament was expected to accelerate a move, but developments have been slow, leaving Celtic still searching.

Another strong contender is Peter Vindahl Jensen of Sparta Prague, who has been reported as Celtic’s top target for the role. However, there has been nothing further to add on this front either.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers acknowledged the urgency of the situation in a recent statement, expressing a keen awareness of the need to address this vacancy promptly. “Yes, it is one of the areas we have needed to improve,” Rodgers said to the Scotsman. “And we have known that since Joe said he was leaving. So yes, that again will take a bit of time. But we hope to have that done by the beginning of the season for sure.”

With the preseason tour of the USA approaching and the new season looming, Celtic’s efforts to secure a top goalkeeper are becoming increasingly critical. Fans are watching closely to see who will step into the large shoes left by Hart, hoping the club can finalise a deal soon to ensure stability and confidence in the goalkeeper position.
