Kelly on Hamburg’s radar as Celtic keep tabs

Livingston goalkeeper Liam Kelly is on Hamburg’s radar with Celtic also keeping tabs, according to reports. The ‘keeper has had a fine season between the sticks for Livi and could be available for as little as £50,000 this summer.

However, Kelly’s willingness - or lack thereof - to be content as a back-up could see him snub a move to Parkhead.

Ipswich, Wigan, Barnsley and Reading are all thought to be keen as well. (The Sun)
