Given keen on Celtic move

Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given has tried to engineer a move away from Eastlands by issuing a come-and-get-me plea to Celtic.

Given, who joined City in 2009, did not make a single appearance in the Premier League last season after falling behind England No. 1 Joe Hart in the pecking order.

Now the 35-year-old is desperate to find first-team football elsewhere, and his preference is for a move to Neil Lennon's Celtic, who finished second in the SPL. Fraser Forster, who joined on a season-long loan from Newcastle, was their regular keeper.

"Celtic is a fantastic club but it's too soon to say what's going to happen or if that's going to happen," Given said in The Sun. "But you never say never when Celtic come calling. It's no secret I'm a big Celtic supporter and have been all my life. I don't know what their goalkeeping situation is.

"Ideally, I would like to be playing but it's out of my hands. If Manchester City want me, I've got another two years left on my contract. I don't really know what's going to happen."
