The 27-year-old played his part in helping Celtic keep a clean sheet in Elfsborg as the team progressed to the final Champions League play-off round with a 1-0 aggregate win.

Wilson is returning to his former club Nottingham Forest for a fee of around £2.5m just two years after arriving at Celtic Park on a Bosman.

But the centre-back insists he has no choice other than to return to his home town due to family issues.

Wilson said: "I have one or two things to resolve and I've been in constant contact with the gaffer all week.

"He knows I am not looking to leave for football or financial reasons. If I am to leave it will be for family reasons which I'd rather not go into.

"But it will be difficult to go, you just need to look at occasions like tonight. European football and the Champions League are massive draws and you just need to think back to last season.

"But I am leaving for personal re4asons and the boss understands that. It's personal but people that need to know, we all know and understand."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
