Former Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson said on Talksport this morning that he'd get his "boots on" and come out of retirement to play for Celtic.

Johnson, who has 54 caps for England, retired in January after leaving Stoke, but is now open to a move north after Brendan Rodgers decided to move on.

Rodgers wants Roberts

Rodgers, who used to coach the player at Parkhead, is said to be keen on a reunion at Leicester City.
