Report: Celtic have pulled plug on move for former Leicester City defender Danny Simpson
The Premier League winner was due to start a trial at Lennoxtown on Sunday, but the plans have been shelved, with manager Neil Lennon set to look at other options.
Simpson was identified as a summer target to boost Celtic’s defensive ranks following the departure of Mikael Lustig, and could have brought the much-needed experience.
However, with Abd Elhamed set to be first-choice next term, the 32-year-old is no longer interested in a move or the trial, and will now look for another club.
The Englishman left the Foxes last month after his contract expired, and is currently a free agent in search of a new experience outside the English top-flight.
Celtic have signed Elhamed from Hapoel Be’er Sheva, and the 28-year-old is set to have a medical and wait for the approval of a work permit
