Some Celtic fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that the Glasgow giants have made a bid for Hibernian midfielder John McGinn.
The Daily Record has claimed that the Glasgow giants will make an improved offer for the former St. Mirren star.
McGinn is one of the best midfielders in Scotland and was in brilliant form for Hibernian last season.
The 23-year-old Scotland international made 35 Scottish Premiership appearances for Hibernian during the 2017-18 campaign, scoring five goals and providing six assists in the process, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.
According to The Scottish Sun, Leeds United and Rangers are interested in McGinn as well.
Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that Brendan Rodgers’s side have made an approach for the 23-year-old Scotland international midfielder.
Below are some of the best comments:
Only way Mcginn will ever be worth anything like that is if he comes to us, proves his worth & commands PL interest. By your logic it should have been Celtic who demanded 70 million for Van Dijk. Know yir place, Hibs r an Spl feeder, end of. https://t.co/Hr6MLcshjl— Joe Murray (@_joemurray67) July 3, 2018
Did Celtic offer Buttons? From what I've heard 1.5 Million plus Allan, that's a fair price for McGinn. https://t.co/sZyyWltrcL— Joe (@JGS1888) July 3, 2018
If Rodgers believes McGinn is the long term replacement for Brown (I don’t tbh) then surely we sign him in Jan on a pre contract rather than over spend on a player and a position that isn’t a priority at the moment?— Stephen Wray (@CelticRockRoars) July 3, 2018
No big loss for me, I don’t get the hype— Stephen Wray (@CelticRockRoars) July 3, 2018
He’s 24 imo if we are signing players like McGinn. He really should be walking into the side, not waiting for broony to hang his boots up. He wasn’t even Hibs best player last season 2 good games against us. Don’t see the point tbh.— My Name is.. (@StevenK10901496) July 3, 2018
I’d imagine he will be replacement for Ntcham, can’t see him or Dembele being around much longer, one more season maybe?— Jock McCruyff (@jockmccruyff) July 3, 2018
Rodgers already on record saying Kouassi is the replacement for brown. Mcginn hype is staggering, bottom half of championship at best will be his other options, not good enough imo— celticbhoy73 (@celticbhoy73) July 3, 2018
I hope he signs.— Dazzler (@dazbo88) July 3, 2018
Anything over 3 million for John McGinn is to much. 2 mil plus Scott Allen should be plenty. Still not convinced hes wat Celtic need. Was the same with brown tho and look how that turned oot.— Darren (@Dmcgill31225) July 3, 2018
Celtic buying John Mcginn is a lot a balls. A step backwards in terms of improving in Europe.— Ryan Carr (@rydoc123) July 3, 2018
McGinn is available on a pre-contract in January. We should just wait till then, no point in spending anything over £1.5mil on him IMO.— Gastro Celtic (@Gastro_Celtic) July 3, 2018
Beyond me as to why Celtic want to sign McGinn when we have Kouassi who is a far better player— reece (@ReeceSpark) July 3, 2018
I’ve seen John McGinn quite a few times and thought he was a busy midfielder with bags of energy. His shooting wasn’t the best, and neither was his strategic passing..but he has undoubted potential if BR can mould him. Interesting signing target. from me— Celtic (@Con_Shaunnery) July 3, 2018
