Gunn targets permanent Old Firm deals

Published Add your comment

Norwich manager Bryan Gunn is considering trying to bring Alan Gow and Chris Killen to Carrow Road on a permanent basis after signing the Old Firm duo on loan.

Rangers forward Gow and Celtic striker Killen have both joined the Coca-Cola Championship strugglers until the end of the season after failing to make the grade in Glasgow.

Gunn said: "I'm open-minded. If the guys come down and do well, it's a great opportunity for them."

He added: "I've told them about the crowds, 25,000 fans that will be here, and they're looking forward to performing in front of that. Which player wouldn't?

"So it's down to them to prove their worth. They're not our players at the moment; we'd have to have agreement from the other clubs, but I'm sure if they come down here and do well, it will benefit all parties."

Killen was a hit in England with Oldham before moving north to Hibernian and then Celtic, and Gunn believes the loan spell will allow the New Zealander to remind Bhoys fans what he is capable of.

Gunn said: "Chris is probably frustrated that he's not had the chances at Celtic, but when I spoke to Gordon Strachan the other day, he was singing his praises in terms of his personality and the way he plays the game.

"It's an opportunity for Chris to come down and play games and show us what type of player he is. It gives us more numbers and a different type of player to what we already have."
