Celtic Football Club has expressed a strong interest in securing the services of Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Caoimhin Kelleher. The pursuit of Kelleher has become a top priority for Celtic’s manager, Brendan Rodgers, as he seeks to identify a long-term successor for the club’s veteran goalkeeper, Joe Hart.
According to The Sun, Kelleher is highly regarded by Brendan Rodgers, who once managed Liverpool, and sees the young goalkeeper as the ideal candidate to take over the No. 1 spot at Celtic Park. The 24-year-old Irish shot-stopper is currently valued at an impressive 12 million euros, according to Transfermarkt.com.
It has been somewhat surprising that Kelleher has remained a Liverpool player, especially after the summer transfer window closed on the 1st of September. Even Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, openly acknowledged the possibility of Kelleher seeking opportunities elsewhere at the end of the previous season.

Although Kelleher’s future at Liverpool seemed uncertain, his departure from the club still appears likely. Celtic had made a notable attempt to secure his services last month, but their efforts were thwarted by Liverpool, who opted to block the move. This decision came amidst rumors of potential interest in Liverpool’s first-choice goalkeeper, Alisson, from Saudi Arabian clubs.
Celtic’s persistence in pursuing Caoimhin Kelleher indicates their commitment to strengthening their squad and securing a promising talent for the future. With Brendan Rodgers leading the charge, the Glasgow-based club is poised to continue their pursuit of Kelleher, hoping to secure him as their long-term goalkeeper and potentially make him a key figure in their future successes.
