Celtic's potential move for former goalkeeper David Marshall could be on the cards after Wigan Athletic went into administration.

The Latics stopper is reportedly being lined up for a sensational return to Glasgow after Fraser Forster opted to remain in Southampton to fight for his spot as number one.

The Hoops are now desperate to sign a goalie following Craig Gordon's departure to Hearts earlier this week and Marshall fits the bill having experienced playing for Celtic in the past. The player, 35, spent five years at Parkhead before leaving for Norwich City.

Marshall would provide experience between the sticks as Celts push for 10 in a row. Interest comes as Wigan felt the brunt of financial difficulty amid the coronavirus pandemic which has hit football hard.

Administrator Gerald Krasner said: "Our immediate objectives are to ensure the club completes all its fixtures this season and to urgently find interested parties to save Wigan Athletic FC and the jobs of the people who work for the club. Obviously the suspension of the Championship season due to COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the recent fortunes of the club.

"Wigan Athletic has been a focal point and source of pride for the town since 1932 and anyone who is interested in buying this historic sporting institution should contact the joint administrators directly."
