Celtic target David Marshall started and played 90 minutes of his side's 8-0 mauling of Hull City last night.

The goalkeeper has been linked with a sensational return to Parkhead as the Hoops try to sort a replacement for Fraser Forster who now looks likely to remain at Southampton for next season and beyond.

Marshall has emerged as Neil Lennon's apparent top target, now, but despite Wigan plunging into administration, the Scotland cap played the full match as his side destroyed the Tigers with a first-half blitz.

The goalie, 35, only had four shots on target to deal with throughout the game as Wigan took a staggering 7-0 lead into the break at half-time. Incredibly they only managed one more goal after the restart.

We told how Wigan dropped into administration recently, putting Celtic on high alert to the potential of picking up Marshall on the cheap, perhaps even as a freebie. However Stoke City are also believed to be interested in the player. Joe Hart is another stopper linked with Celtic as is Vaclav Hladky and Vasilis Barkas of AEK Athens.
