Report suggests Celtic were considering a controversial and shock move for Aberdeen defender Shay Logan

Pittodrie Stadium

The Aberdeen defender is not exactly fond of Celtic, by all accounts.

Today it was confirmed that Shay Logan has extended his contract with Aberdeen for two more seasons.

The former Manchester City defender has been an impressive addition to Pittodrie and was due to be out of contract with the club in the summer.

Now he has stayed with the Dons as they look to build on an impressive campaign next term.

Although he reportedly had interested parties. Sky Sports report that Championship side Rotherham United were interested but, perhaps most interestingly, Scottish Premiership rivals Celtic were also said to be keen.

Celtic would have course been a tough team to reject, considering their current dominance in Scottish football.

But Logan and Celtic have history, which would have made his move very eye-catching.

Back in December 2014 then on-loan Celtic winger Aleksandar Tonev was handed a seven game suspension for racially abusing Logan in a game earlier that season, as reported by the Daily Record. Celtic vehemently backed up Tonev at the time, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Of course, with Tonev no longer at Celtic, that would not have been a big issue but would still have been an interesting signature.

Logan also publicly slammed Celtic star Kris Commons in May of last year, suggesting he showed a lack of respect for Aberdeen in the Daily Mail.

Logan will however be hoping to take the title away from Celtic next season, rather than win it with The Hoops.
