Celtic fans aren’t sure what to make of Leicester’s bid for Callum McGregor

According to The Scottish Daily Mail (August 8, page 84), Celtic booted out a last-minute bid from Leicester City for their midfield star Callum McGregor, but the fans aren’t totally convinced.

The Premier League side made a last gasp offer of £20m for the 26-year-old on the final day of their transfer window, but major shareholder Dermot Desmond rejected the bid from his former manager Brendan Rodgers, per the report.

The club turned down the advances of their former boss but were unable to keep a hold of Kieran Tierney, who joined Arsenal on deadline day.

And the news that McGregor would be staying at Parkhead has gone down very well with the supporters that trust the story to be true.

Rodgers’ reputation at Celtic Park is in the gutter after he left the club, so turning down his advances has received mass support from some sections of the fans.

Others though are concerned that it’s nothing more than a public relations exercise designed to make the club look good, having just lost Tierney.

Here’s what they had to say on Twitter about the bid:
