Giroud talks about career-changing Celtic transfer

Olivier Giroud was involved in a transfer deal that could have seen him join Celtic in 2010.

This would have of course changed his career course completely. Here is the full story:

Giroud said: “Yes, I had contact with Celtic in 2010. I could have played at one of the most magnificent atmospheres in the world at Celtic Park.

“It would also have given me a springboard towards the English Premier League. Middlesbrough, in the Championship, were also interested.

“But I chose to sign for Montpellier for three reasons.”

Giroud explained: “I wanted to play in Ligue 1 before leaving France. I had never played a Ligue 1 match before signing for Montpellier.

“Secondly, my agents advised me to sign for Montpellier even though they would have made more money if I had signed for Celtic.

“Money has been important in my career, I am not playing football for glory, but it has never been my main aim and that’s also why I preferred to move to Montpellier.

“And thirdly, Montpellier’s late owner, Louis Nicollin, convinced me not to go to Scotland and so I signed for him instead.”

Wow, talk about luck and circumstances!
