Both Rangers and Celtic were interested in signing Campbell, according to The Daily Record.
McClean, who has been on the books of Stoke since the summer of 2018 when he joined from West Bromwich Albion for an initial transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £5 million, has trolled Rangers on Instagram.
The 30-year-old Republic of Ireland international - who is a Celtic fan, as reported by The Scottish Sun - called Rangers “Sevco”, as he celebrated Stoke’s 3-1 home win against Charlton Athletic in the Championship on Saturday.

McClean wrote on Instagram: “When you convince @tyekaicampbell to see sense and turn down Sevco and he listens.”
Campbell responded to McClean’s post and wrote back: “few words from uncle macca was all it took."
