Celtic target gives update about his future


Celtic summer target John McGinn has distanced himself from moving to Parkhead insisting he would need “something special” to leave Hibernian.

According to a report from the Daily Record, Brendan Rodgers is considering making a move for the highly-rated midfielder in the summer transfer window.

However, Celtic are not the only ones eyeing McGinn, as reports claim Glasgow Rangers are also interested in signing the player.

Celtic boss wants the Scotland international as his first summer signing. McGinn enjoyed excellent form with Hibs last season and his arrival would increase the quality and depth of the Ranger and the Celtic midfield.

But it will not be an easy task luring him away straightaway, with Hibs demanding a fee in the region of £5 million.

McGinn is not paying much attention to rumours about his future and insists that it will take something special to take him away from Hibs.

“I still have a year to go at Hibs and I love it there,” said McGinn, as quoted by The Scottish Sun.

“It will definitely need something really special to come along. The speculation is there because I have been playing well. I just have to deal with it.”

“I am glad to be on the other side of the world, if I am honest. I am aware of what’s being said. I wake up to different speculation, but that’s something I cannot control. It’s good to get away from it.”
