‘Excellent no-nonsense defender’ – Fans delighted with new move as announced on twitter


Celtic have been eyeing up a move for Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna.

According to The Scottish Sun, Celtic have joined Swansea City in pursuit of the 21-year-old who the Dons have placed a tag of £10 million on [The Daily Record].

The Hoops have been having a little crisis at the centre-back in recent weeks after Jozo Simunovic missed the third-round Champions League qualifier with Rosenborg through suspension, while Dedryck Boyata has been enjoying an extended holiday after helping Belgium to a World Cup semi-final in Russia earlier this summer.

However, it remains to be seen if Brendan Rodgers will want to sign a new central defender from here on in.

Here is how some Celtic fans reacted to the rumour about McKenna.



It seems unlikely that the Hoops would spend a whopping £10 million on McKenna – and certainly not before they are assured of the £30 million windfalls heading their way if they qualify for the Champions League proper.

Rodgers has already broken the club’s transfer record this summer by signing Odsonne Edouard for £8 million and doing so might just be a dream not quite realistic at the moment.
