The Daily Record ( I Know ) say Madrid not willing to go above £25m for O'Riley according to their "contacts" in Spain, aye right
They say it's "bad news" for Celtic
Why, as club do not want or need to sell him.
First club that offers £33m+ can talk to player but not before.

I value him more than Jota but Jota had that added element of squeezing some extra Saudi money out of the buying club. Needless to say I want him to stay but I think I said at the end of the season I'd be happy with 25m. Of course though, if we are confident we can get more and the player isn't going to be going mental then we keep him for now.

If history is anything to go by, the people running the club will be terrified of missing out on the O'Riley payday. £25m + sell-on probably gets him. Although the higher the fee, the less chance of benefiting from any future sell-on.

I doubt any club will pay €40M for a player earning his trade in Scottish football.

I reckon Celtic will accept £25M plus the usual add ons.

Agreed Buzz. I'm normally against previous players returning and that includes Ajer (we can debate how Lenny managed them during the COVID season but was he not one of a few players who stopped playing that year) ? But I'd make an exception for Jota. I guess the money he is on now would make that unrealistic.

I agree our location and standard of the SPL will always hamper any bargaining strength at Celtic, especially while guys like Kyogo and O'Riley are snubbed by their International team selectors.
I also blame our Board for the way we have deteriorated in stature across Europe thanks to the downsizing and repeated sale of our top players, especially when there has been plenty cash in the bank.

Buzz I'd hunt them if they want him pay what we want if not jog on. get your point but av said many times we are cash rich and its prob the best position we've ever been in financially.

I think it’s only fair to give O’Riley another pay rise considering he’s our biggest asset.

I know it’s maybe O’Riley’s own fault for accepting a below average Celtic wage, when he signed a new contract in October.

I read it’s £14k a week and he could multiply that wage by 5 or 6 times in a better league.

If Matt decides to stay,
We want the best out of him and to make him feel like he’s wanted.
The best way to show our appreciation, would be to make him one of our higher earners at our club.

I remember Morelos got a few pay rises in a short space of time at Ibrox when his valuation increased.

And like Mally highlighted,
Celtic are in our best ever position financially, so we should be spending it on our own.

If CMG is on 2m per year then MOR is easily worth the same if not more.

9iar I don't think the Jota wage will have any bearing on his next move. If he leaves Saudi the standard of club he ends up at will dictate his wage, it will be nothing to do with how much he was earning over there and I expect he understands that.

Do we honestly know whether M O’R accepted a below average wage when he signed a new Contract last September/ October. I can’t believe such a wise sensible model professional footballer would have inept agent representing him in contract talks . It seems to suit the SMSM agenda that Matt is on a very poor salary at Celtic, but I have seen no proof from a credible source to back that submission.
