Journalist thinks Liverpool’s Ben Davies would thrive at Celtic

The Celtic Way journalist Anthony Haggerty believes that Liverpool defender Ben Davies would “thrive” at Celtic.

According to the Daily Mail, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou is keen on bringing the Reds centre-back to Glasgow this summer less than six months after he made the switch to Anfield on Deadline Day in January.

Davies was signed by Jurgen Klopp in a desperate attempt to solve some of Liverpool’s defensive problems after long-term injuries to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip.

However, whilst the 25-year-old was on the bench on several occasions, the ex-Preston defender could leave Merseyside without playing a single minute during his short stay with Liverpool.

Celtic and then manager Neil Lennon were close to bringing Davies to Paradise back in the January window, but were pipped by Klopp’s team right at the last.

But with Davies still out of favour at Liverpool, the Hoops are looking to bring him to Parkhead on loan for the season as they try to bolster their defensive department.

And Haggerty told Football FanCast that the defender would be a success in Scotland:

“A player like Ben Davies, having not played so much at Liverpool, could come up here and thrive and enjoy it. The adulation you get up here is incredible. I think someone like Ben Davies could fit the bill for Celtic.”
