'If an offer is good, he'll go' - Chesterfield boss tells Celtic to pay up for Eoin Doyle


Celtic have told they can sign Eoin Doyle at the right price.

Celtic's interest in Eoin Doyle was reported earlier this week, and Chesterfield have made their position clear.

The 26-year-old has a staggering 22 goals in 27 games for the League One side this season and has experience of the SPL from a previous spell with Hibs.

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook is quoted in the Daily Record admitting he knows he can't hold onto Doyle, but wants the offer to be 'good'.

He said: "At the clubs I’ve managed, I’ve learned that there are always bigger clubs than you.

"We can’t do anything about the speculation but we won’t be bullied. If we feel an offer is good for us and for him, he’ll go and if not, we’re lucky to have him in our squad."

The same report claims they are holding out for £1.5 million, but there is interest from at least four Championship clubs including table toppers Derby County.

Doyle has never quite hit form like he is doing so now, already in the midst of the best season of his club career.

At Hibs he only struck 15 times in 57 games, and considering Celtic have other options, his less than prolific previous spell may factor in when considering who they should push for to help them win the league and defeat Inter Milan in Europe.
