FORMER Premier League star Kevin Phillips urged Cherries winger Jordon Ibe to “show everyone what a top player he is”.

The ex-Sunderland and England striker believes Celtic would be a “great move” for the 24-year-old, who is set to depart Vitality Stadium after his contract expires next month.

Ibe, who signed from Liverpool for £15million in 2016, has featured just four times in Eddie Howe’s first team this season – the latest appearance coming at Burton in the Carabao Cup back in September.

But Phillips believes a move north of the border could resurrect the winger’s career.

He told Football Insider: “Jordon has frustrated people. He has a load of talent but it has not quite worked out.

“He might go to Celtic, play week in, week out winning football matches.

“It is amazing when you play for a side that is winning games, you do not get as many injuries or pick up as many strains because you want to play every week.

“That could be a great move for him. Go and resurrect his career and show everyone what a top player he is.”

Ibe had scored five times in 92 appearances for Eddie Howe’s men.
