Carlton Cole appears to have tun into the same problems at Celtic a he did when joining the Irons as an out of contract player – fitness!
The former Irons striker is attempting to land a deal with the Scottish outfit but sadly things may look bleak for the 31 year old.
Without a pre-season behind him, trials at Parkhead have seen the problem emerge with coach John Kennedey admitting it’s tough getting him match fit in a short space of time.
He is reported as saying “He did well last week but he is short on football fitness.
“He has not done enough football training to get a proper judgement, but we know what he is all about I think when the club and his representatives speak together, then the deal has to be right if there is one to be done.”
A number of Championship clubs had been linked with Cole and Premier League outfit Bournemouth are the latest club to reportedly show an interest.
