Interest In Snodgrass

Interest In Snodgrass


Norwich City winger, Robert Snodgrass is the first player to break cover and offer some honest words on what the future holds for him, should City be relegated.

Press reports in Scotland this morning, suggest that Celtic are keen on the Glasgow born Snodgrass who is an childhood Celtic fan. Meanwhile reports in the North East also suggest that Alan Pardew at Newcastle is an admirer and would also be interested, now that he has run out of French players to buy.

Snodgrass is quoted in the Daily Record, as follows:

"What division we`re in will be relevant.

"If things go according to plan and we stay in the Premier League I`ll have a year left and I`ll honour that. As a player, you want to play at the highest level and that`s why I`m giving everything I can to keep Norwich up.

"Everything I do is geared towards keeping us in the Premier League as this club gave me my chance. It`s a fantastic club and I`ve loved every second here.

"The only things that haven`t been good are the results and the position in the table this season.

"I`m a realist and the rest of the stuff that happens is out of my hands.

"I`m flattered to be linked with Celtic as I`ve watched them since I was a kid. I was also in Scottish football and there`s always a part of me that thinks I`ve a point to prove there.

"I`m a different specimen now and 
I do everything I can to be a top 
professional - and I mean everything.

"I live and breathe football but that`s what it takes if you want to play at the highest level.

"I also want to be successful and Celtic are a successful club.

"They win things, they could have won the Treble this year and winning things appeals to me.

"That`s a big pull for me. There`s two sides of the coin.

"Celtic hold a place deep in my heart because I`ve watched them and they`re the team I support but it`s all about being the best you can and playing at the highest possible level.

"The Premier League is where it`s at and I`d be lying if I said anything other than. But if other options come up in the summer I`ll look at them."

City are staring into the abyss that leads into the Championship and it seems likely that a number of players from our squad would also be uninterested in playing for the club anywhere other than the Premier League.

Leroy Fer, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Gary Hooper? Who knows, I suspect that Fer will have no shortage of admirers although RvW would be a different case entirely. However, he is reportedly on very big wages (for City) and the club may be keen to off load him should an offer come in and he probably still has enough stock from his time in Portugal to suggest someone from Europe may come in with a cheeky bid.

Getting back to Snodgrass though, he has also spoken about Norwich and that he will not give up until it's all over.

Playing in midfield he`s bagged seven goals and several assists and said: "I didn`t hit the heights I can in the first half of the season and I was nowhere near the level I know I can be at.

"I believe I can score goals against 
the teams at the top of the league and I`ve done that in the second half of the season. I`m joint top scorer with Gary Hooper and it was the same last year with Grant Holt until the last day of 
the season.

"I push myself every day to try to be a better player and a better person. I try to be as good as I can be."

Snodgrass will need to be at the top of his game, along with the rest of the team if City are to stay up but the Scot is adamant that no-one is giving up yet.

He said: "It`s been a hard season and we haven`t had some of the results we`ve deserved in some matches.

"We should have more points but the league doesn`t lie.

"It`s now going to take blood, sweat and tears to try to get any points against Chelsea and Arsenal because both of them are fighting for something. It`s a big ask but we`ll give it our best shot."

Looking at our Vital Norwich Player Of The Season poll, I wonder if Snodgrass will win the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy and then be sold in the summer - Lee Croft all over again...

Oh well - can't say I'm fussed. He'd be hard work in the champ.
