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

Celtic being linked with Scott Mckenna. He's an excellent no-nonsense defender, but can't see Rodgers going after a player so limited with ball at his feet. Aberdeen's price tag also likely puts Celtic out of the bidding regardless.

If we want him we’ll take him ?

If we offered cash plus Christie we'd get him

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.
