Wigan new-boy Gary Caldwell has revealed that Celtic manager Tony Mowbray wasn’t in favour of his exit from the club, according to ESPN Soccernet. Although staying with the Scottish giants was the initial plan, the opportunity to compete in the Premier League with the Latics has left the defender in an optimistic mood.

"I have no regrets. I had three and a half years there and they were great for me – hopefully I was good for them. The gaffer told me at different times he wanted me to stay. But the boss had one opinion and the club had a different one. I think the club won in the end,” Caldwell said.

Wigan’s successful hijack of Middlesbrough’s attempt to sign Caldwell ensures Roberto Martinez has an experienced and tested centre-back to rely as they attempt to escape relegation..
