Looks like missing out on McGinn.

An utter utter disgrace by the Celtic board. In today’s transfer market where players are going for tens of millions of pounds we have missed out on the best young Scottish player outside our club for the sake of a few hundred thousand. Hang your heads in shame and don’t be surprised if Brendan loses his faith and moves on after this season. For all BR has done for this club in the two years he’s been here you have let him and us supporters down badly.

My main gripe is how long it seems to have taken for us to match Villa's offer (or react to McGinn travelling down there) . To an extent I can understand Celtic not going in with their top offer whilst we were the only club in the frame because then you leave yourself open to another club getting desperate and outbidding us completely. But what I can't accept is if there was an arrogance involved by our money men and an attitude that we would get our man just because we're Celtic.

I normally don't wade on this subject but for once i agree. This is an embarrassment that he has been allowed to slip away, and unless there is substantially better alternative in the works, which i doubt, i will feel very disgruntled with the board and similarly i am growing concerned on BR position. id be royally pissed off.

Hibs didn’t want to do business with us and that is that. Quoted us 3 million one day and changed it to 4 million the next. They are settling for 2.75 million from Villa.

I was desperate for McGinn to sign but if he has gone there purely based on being told he will play every week then good luck to him. No one is guaranteed to start at Celtic. What he had was an opportunity to come to CP, train and develop under BR and fight his way into the team. This is a major embarrassment for Celtic though, i don't expect Celtic to pay over the odds for any player but considering this is a player BR spoke about he will not be happy. Celtic have had a month to get this done and we could easily have given them Allan plus the cash as he ain't playing anyway!

I’ve absolutely no doubt Petrie would prefer to deal with villa instead of us when it comes to mcginn and if it’s true that Hibs were changing the goalposts regarding his fee then I find that strange as well. Surely a bid of say £2/ £2.5 million with maybe Allan or Christie thrown in would’ve been enough for Hibs to accept? I don’t accept there wasn’t a deal that our board couldn’t have came to if Brendan 100% wanted the boy in. All that said, if reports are to be believed we’ve now matched what villa have offered and if that is indeed the case then mcginn has a decision to make, he wouldn’t be the first player to travel to a club, agree terms in principle then move elsewhere. If he’s as big a Celtic fan as is made out and terms are the same as what’s on offer at villa then he’ll be back up the road to us, if not then we move on to players that do want to commit to our club.

McGinn wouldn’t have got a game anyway. We have better players in the squad at the moment. If he goes to villa best of luck to him.

I am seriously concerned about Rodgers I would hate him to think he can’t take the club any further forward because he isn’t getting the backing he needs.

08 Aug 2018 16:37:36
Think people need to calm down, no one player will ever ever make or break Celtic.

08 Aug 2018 16:43:34
Ed, what's your take on this? . Is it not sensible that McGinn has his medical while already there so he doesn't have to fart about tomorrow, if, and only if, he and his reps decide that's the best move for him. Im assuming nothings a done deal yet?

{Ed007's Note - Nothing's been finalised but it would take a massive 'hijack' job by Celtic to get McGinn now.}

08 Aug 2018 17:13:01
There was £4 million mentioned when this saga started, that should have been Celtics opening offer, McGinn is easily as good as any other midfielder at Parkhead, big mistake letting him get away, if he is gone.

08 Aug 2018 17:23:26
Geez a break. Why should Celtic have to pay 4 million when other teams can have him for under 3?

08 Aug 2018 17:46:18
Ed you know my feelings on the bhoy am gutted think he'd have been a real star for us cannot fathom out our logic here.

{Ed007's Note - It's a complete and utter cock-up on Lawwell's part.}

08 Aug 2018 18:03:32
Get McGinn tae fk if he really wants to come he will balll will be in his court.

08 Aug 2018 18:10:36
The most celtic like transfer in history. If Lawwell doesn’t give Rodgers what he wants now then we will be in trouble. Who’s the second option to McGinn then? Is he lined up. I doubt it. Shambles.

08 Aug 2018 18:32:15
Yep ed lawells gambled and it's backfired and it was Brendan that wanted the bhoy that's why it's baffling.

08 Aug 2018 18:56:34
Football is all about opinions, and in my opinion midfield is where matches are won and lost. I feel missing out on Mcginn is a real body blow. Turning up to hard away ties, ibrox, pittodrie, tyncastle etc with a midfield of say Brown, Ntcham, McGregor, Rogic, Mcginn, would have made us so very hard to beat in the spfl. Especially with the drive both Mcginn and Brown poccess.

08 Aug 2018 19:11:57
This is a massive blunder by lawell he would have eventually took over from Broony and we're arguing about under a mill after the cash we've raked in never mind if we get into cl totally pissed off Tim the night.
