Ibrahimovic talks up future Celtic move

Zlatan Ibrahimovic may be open to a move to Celtic before he retires after saying he would love to play in front of the Celtic Park faithful.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun, the Paris Saint-Germain forward said the lure of playing in front of a loud, passionate crowd was a real draw when asked about a potential switch to Glasgow.

“I have a very important job to do in Paris, but in football I have learned that you can never say never,” he told the newspaper. “Celtic is a club with a big tradition and a place where any top player would want to end their career. How could I say I wouldn’t want to play for those fans every week?”

The 32-year-old would be following in the footsteps of fellow Sweden legend Henrik Larsson, who spent seven years playing for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League.

“Henrik was good enough to play for any team in Europe, but after playing at Celtic Park it is easy to understand why he chose to stay there for so long,” Ibrahimovic, who played against the Bhoys for Ajax in 2001, said. “No player would ever want to leave playing in the stadium for those fans.”

Celtic boss Neil Lennon said it was a huge compliment that a player of Ibrahimovic’s stature was keen to join the club.

“He’d have to play well to get in our team,” he joked. “Seriously, it would be wonderful if we could get that type of player to the club. I think that’s a long way off yet.

“It’s a nice compliment for the club, though, and it just shows the reputation we have built up over the years. That’s testament to the players’ performances over the last couple of seasons -- the supporters as well and what they bring to Celtic Park on European nights. I think a lot of players and coaches would like to sample that on a regular basis.”
