Neil Lennon should look at former team-mate David Marshall to return to Celtic.

The recent Scotland choice shows that manager Steve Clarke rates the veteran keeper.

Current Hoops number one Scott Bain had to make do with the bench for the qualifier against Cyprus.

With the Celtic goalkeeper situation uncertain, bringing in Marshall would be a top choice.

Some of the tartan army were shocked to see the Celtic stopper dropped for the Hull City man. Nevertheless, Marshall played through to help his team win the close match at Hampden Park.

Former Scotland keeper Craig Gordon’s Celtic future is a question mark as his injuries continue. This will leave Marshall’s Scotland colleague Bain as the only senior keeper fit at the club.

It may be best for all parties if Gordon moves on and Lennon can test the water with Hull for Marshall.

Replicating the decision Allan McGregor has made with Rangers will reap benefits for Celtic.

Full circle for David Marshall

Like McGregor, Marshall made his name as a young hotshot and went down south to improve.

The Rangers man has come back to be potentially their player of the season, making important stops.

Marshall can also do this and be part of history as The Bhoys chase nine and 10-in-a-row.

It’s only right that Marshall gets to come back to Celtic and play for his boyhood club once more.

Celtic will be getting a top class keeper and keeping the friendly rivalry with Bain stronger which will benefit everyone involved.

Everyone is aware of Marshall’s ability – the move would be a no brainer.
