Greg Stewart has been recalled to Birmingham as they are looking to sell him this month. Hes been pretty good for Kilmarnock this season. I'm not overly confident that we could get the best out of him, but it wouldn't surprise me if McInnes would go for him.

He's going to Sunderland hence why Birmingham recalled him from what was a full season loan at Killie

Seems like Sunderland are signing half the players in the league at the moment. Be interesting to see how they fare next season in the chapionship.

 As you do when down at the local shop I had a sneaky scan at the EE while waiting in the queue(and because the boy in front decides to ask for about 19 scratch cards at the last minute   :hammer:).
   Mcinnes saying he's hopeful GMS will stay til at least the end of the season,despite the NY interest.And Hoban hoping to be available for the Stenny game

Rumours on the Celtic forums and Twitter that a deal has been agreed in Dubai between Aberdeen and Celtic for McKenna.

£4m plus Hendry and Hayes. No idea if they're loans or permanent (one would have to be permanent at least as can't loan two players from same club).

Could be a lot of shite and one guy's story has grown arms and legs. But, if that deal was on offer, would you take it?

For me, as long as there was a sell on clause included should Celtic eventually sell him on for big money, I'd take it.

We turned down £6m from Aston Villa. Hendry + Hayes are not worth £2m. Plus I’d be looking for more money from a direct rival.

Fuck no, I wouldn’t take that. Given what we knocked back in the summer, 8 million is a fair number to consider. An average at best hendry and an aging Hayes no thank you. If he leaves I’m pretty certain it’s to England.

We knocked back much less than that in summer. Milne has already said the offer from Villa was nowhere near the £6.5m figure that was quoted.

Honestly wouldnt want Hayes back. As much as he was good for us he hasnt played much for the last couple of seasons and he wont have the same engine now at 31. Hendry seemed to be a good player at Dundee but I would value him at no more then 1 mill so would be expecting at least 5-6 million on top. But I would generally prefer not to sell to a rival. We want to get him into the English market with a decent sell on clause. If he does even half decent down there a 20% clause could net us an extra 6mill+.

If we accepted that deal then we may as well just accept that we have become Celtic's bitches. Hendry has regressed from the form he was in at Dundee and right now is worth no more than £500-750k. Hayes 2 years older plus one serious leg break.....likely to be slowing down and worth around £250k.

I'm certain this is just a Dhimwit starting a story in the pub having heard that we were out in Dubai at the same time as his club and the story growing arms and legs as it is passed from one plastic Paddy to another.

I'd expect a top end Championship to cough up at least £8million for his services and if the reported Newcastle interest is true possibly even £10million.

As much as his departure now could hurt us, let's just get this done and get him sold for £££££m's to some guffy club.

Selling to Sellic should only be considered for stupid money otherwise as TC says, we be their bitches.

Fuck Hendry and Hayes. Not good enough for them and not good enough for us.

So what is stupid money?

Like McInnes - the great judge of talent (thus Milne giving him an exorbitant income) - I don't think McKenna is worth millions of zillions. McInnes can't rate him very highly as he never played him for years despite seeing him in training every day, presumably, unless he's one of these prima donna coaches who leaves the work to others. It was only in a crisis 15/16 months ago that he was he forced to play him at Fir Park and as the boy done well, continued to play and developed into our biggest financial asset, based purely on potential of course.

Specifically, he has too many mistakes in him and he has no silk. He's just a big unit of average technical skill. He will never be good enough to compete with EPL quality so if stupid money is offered, get rid. Then we have even less chance of winning the league unless the chairman allows the manager to reinvest it all in "the football side of the business", which he won't and assuming the manager is good enough to spend it wisely, which he isn't.

Sincerely hope it is. Forest desperate to offload him to anyone, couldn't even get into the Peterborough team in the last 2 months he was there, with a bizarre incident taking place in the flat he shared with a fellow player....

Talented obviously but problems with attitude and maturity. Will likely end up at Hibs again and do reasonably well. They've already got a striker with attitude problems so another one won't faze Lemon

Cummings is a mercurial talent.  Now say what you like about DM but by and large his players really want to play for him.
If it came to pass I reckon he would get a pretty decent tune out of him.  It's a no from me mainly on hunnish grounds but I wouldn't be raging if we did sign him.

Some roaster has just called the Radio Clyde phone in asking if anyone on the panel has heard the McKenna to Celtic  deal mentioned earlier "as his pal has just e-mailed him to assure him this is a done deal"  :laughing:

What is worse.....Mark Wilson said he had heard it, couldn't confirm anything but felt it was a good deal in principle for both parties  :hammer:

At least uber Hun Alex Rae said that in view of us rejecting Villa's bigger offer in August he thought it was a non-starter

Not sure if you’re trying to stir things up but some of your recent posts seem to go against sensible consensus, just because.

Cummings “mercurial’ ???

He’s a fat, lazy, waste of space with an over inflated sense of worth. Never a footballer.

If not, I’ll have whatever you are.

Oh and whoever made up the McKenna nonsense can fuck off, unless the made up deal involves a 100% sell on clause. 😉
