Patrick Twumasi recounts how he turned down an offer from former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers

Gazişehir Gaziantep attacker Patrick Twumasi has reflected on an offer he received from Scottish giants Celtic.

The Ghanaian turned down a move to Celtic after a sparkling time with Astana.

Twumasi massively caught the interest of the Scottish giants after a Champions League game where he scored and overly impressed for his side.

Former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers however expressed interest and contact the player personally in a bid to have him in his squad.

However the Ghana International opted for a move to Spanish side Deportivo Alaves, a decision the 26-year-old wished to have reverted.

“I remember I had an offer from Celtic, they really wanted me when I was in Astana because I played against them in the Champions League game and I did very well,” he told

“Rogers spoke to me after the game and after some days he got my number and called me. He told me he wanted me at the Club.

“Even though I was interested I was weighing the options on the table together with my agent and it happened that we settled on Alaves.

“Maybe Celtic would have been good for me but you never know, such things are bound to happen sometimes.”

Alaves however overlooked the talented Ghanaian forward as he managed just 11 appearances for the Club before leaving for loan to Turkish outfit Gazişehir Gaziantep where he has turned to be the star man at the Club bagging 5 goals and 8 assists so far this season.
