Burt also spent time training with Sunderland in League One and hoped to move on, but the Black Cats are understood to have chosen to sign another experienced player ahead of him.
Bert spoke recently Herald and Times Support About his time as a player in both Celts and Light Blues. Behind the scenes, he still has fans in both clubs, although he admits it will always be difficult to pick out the likes of Ryan Christie and Colm McGregor.
“Breaking it was always going to be a challenge,” he said. “I knew that before I left. I was confident in my ability to show the manager and he complimented me while I was there. Especially after my year of Rangers injuries and coming back.
“I think the manager liked me and he complimented me a few times. One time in particular was when I played with Le Griffiths and scored a hat trick. I never know what happened to the league. Yes, but the virus can give me a chance to stop it.
“I wasn’t expecting Celtic to be the first team right away, I was tired but it was going to be tough and it proved it. It makes perfect sense that I didn’t play 10 in a row and so the stakes were high. .
