Former Celtic hitman Harald Brattbaak has urged Norwegian Under-21 striker Marcus Pedersen to snub a move to England and join the Hoops.[LNB] Pedersen has reportedly attracted the interest of English Premier League clubs Bolton Wanderers, West Bromwich Albion, Everton, Blackburn Rovers and Sunderland.[LNB]The forward, 20, currently plays for Norwegian top flight club Stromsgodset and has scored 17 goals in 38 appearances for the club.[LNB]And Brattbaak reckons Pedersen should move to Parkhead if the chance arises.[LNB]Brattbaak told the Scottish Sun: "Any player who has the chance to join Celtic should grab it with both hands. It's a big opportunity and something you really can't say no to. If he [Pedersen] gets the offer to go to Celtic it shouldn't be a hard decision."[LNB]He added: "From what I've seen he's player who plays with his heart on his shirt.[LNB]"That's what the Celtic fans love and expect. He'd fit really well into the Scottish style. If you give him a chance in front of goal he'll usually take it.[LNB]"He's a young player but he's got the talent. He is strong physically, and is really quick."
