Conor Hazard could leave Celtic on loan again as Dundee consider returning for goalkeeper


Dundee is keen to get Conor Hazard back on loan from Celtic for his return to the Premiership.

The Northern Ireland international secured a loan at Dens Park in the 2019-20 season.

Dundee boss James McPake tried to get him back for the last campaign but Hazard got a new contract and also got a run in Celtic’s first team.

Celtic struggled for a consistent No.1 with Vasilis Barkas failing to live up to his high price tag and Scott Bain also entered and exited.

New boss Ange Postecoglou has arrived but he is likely to sign a new goalkeeper with Brighton’s Matt Ryan as the target of choice.

It could cause Hazard to drop further down the pecking order and he’s at an age where he needs first-team football.

Celtic are aware of Dundee’s interest and could close a deal once Postecoglou lands his own No.1.

If Hazard traveled north again, he would have to fight Adam Legzdins for the gloves.

The Englishman was impressive in helping Dundee win promotion.

Meanwhile, Dundee goalkeeper coach Bobby Geddes has left the club.

The Dark Blues have confirmed that the legend left after his contract expired.

Geddes, who served the club for 26 years as a player and coach, is part of the club’s Hall of Fame.

A club statement read: “Dundee Football Club can confirm that Bobby Geddes left the club after his contract expired.

Bobby served as the goalkeeper coach at the club for 15 years. “He spent 10 years of his playing career at Dens and in 2016 was elected to the Dundee FC Hall of Fame with a special recognition award. “We would like to thank Bobby for his efforts at the club and wish him the best for the future.”
