Celtic fan and author of ‘Ten Men Won the League’, Stephen Murray, has claimed to have it on the authority of “two good sources” that Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring Aberdeen defender Scott Mckenna to Celtic in the upcoming January transfer window.
I’m not one for spreading rumours but two good sources have told me Brendan is keen to sign Scott McKenna in January. Personally I don’t rate him. For money mentioned we could get better quality abroad.

This rumour is lent more weight by the fact that the Daily Mail reported in November that the Bhoys are likely to pursue the 6’2” Dons man in the winter market.
McKenna has been in fine form for the Pittodrie Stadium outfit this season, and his power, physicality and quality on the ball would make him an asset to Rodgers. The 8-cap Scotland international is ready for the next step up in his career too.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below...
However, there is an argument that by setting their sights on the 22-year-old the Hoops are showing a lack of ambition. McKenna would be a good singing, but by looking further afield than Scotland, and spending a bit more money, Rodgers could land someone capable of making a far bigger impact at Celtic Park.
Plenty of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to debate the potential signing of McKenna…
McKenna would be like signing Jack Hendry again

I think he would be a good player for us.

I wouldn’t be totally against it but not for the type of money being spoken about. Wouldn’t it be better to use the money to make Boyata an offer he’d find difficult to turn down?

He’s a very decent player.
