Hart played just 19 games after a loan move to West Ham from Manchester City in the 2017/18 season.

His in, out spell with West Ham ended up costing him a place in England’s World Cup squad.

Celtic eyeing former Hammer Hart?

Celtic boss Neil Lennon is on the lookout for a new goalkeeper.

Craig Gordon has rejoined Hearts, where he started his career, after being released by Celtic.

Gordon made just six appearances for Celtic last term, with on loan Fraser Forster being Lennon’s preferred goalkeeper.

His future at Parkhead is uncertain, though, with Forster said to be part of Southampton’s plans.

And West Ham legend Sinclair – a huge Celtic fan – feels Hart is the man to fill the void.

West Ham legend Sinclair urges Hart to join Celtic

Taking to Twitter, West Ham hero Sinclair urged his former Man City teammate to join Celtic.

“C’mon Joe, get your backside up north to Paradise,” Sinclair said on Twitter.

Paradise is just what former Hammer Hart needs after a hellish few years.

Record Sport claims Celtic are keen on the ex-England international who is a free agent after leaving Burnley.

Hart spoke about his future in a candid interview with BBC Sport where he urged a club to give him a chance.

Candid Hart opens up on future

“I am young when it comes to goalkeeping. I’m even younger when it comes to the mental age of a guy who just wants to go in goal and have people whack balls at him,” Hart told BBC Sport.

“I am under no illusions that Real Madrid are going to knock my door down, get (Thibaut) Courtois out and bring me in. But there is plenty more to come from me.

“I just need someone to believe in me and I will repay that faith.”

Sinclair’s suggestion received a mixed response from some Celtic fans on Twitter.
