Celtic fans are not keen on signing Kilmarnock defender Stephen O’Donnell this summer, despite the club’s need to sign a right-back.
With Cristian Gamboa’s and Mikael Lustig’s contracts expiring, alongside loan player Jeremy Toljan’s return to Borussia Dortmund, the Hoops badly need a player in the position during the transfer window.
The Scottish Sun reported last month that manager Neil Lennon could make a move for Scotland international O’Donnell, while former Celtic defender Mark Wilson tipped the player to make the switch to Celtic Park last week, speaking to The Daily Record.
How does Neil Lennon turn his doubters into believers? The answer lies in the video below…
O’Donnell has been a key part of Killie’s resurgence in the last 18 months, offering impressive stability on the right flank as part of Steve Clarke’s side.
Clarke has since selected the 27-year-old for Scotland, with the player starting the country’s last two qualifying matches.
Plenty of Celtic supporters watching Scotland against Belgium on Tuesday night though weren’t impressed, giving any move for the player a big thumbs down.
These fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Stephen O'Donnell to Celtic? No, thanks!

I really hope Celtic don't go for McKenna and O'Donnell, they are both mince

Better from Scotland tonight we certainly looked more organised, Ryan Fraser was top class and at least it ends the argument about if Stephen O’Donnell is good enough for Celtic, absolutely nowhere near it !

Stephen O’Donnell is rotten and shouldn’t get anywhere near Celtic.
If we’re signing any Killie full backs it should be Greg Taylor.

I'd rather we keep lustig than sign O'Donnell he's not good enough for us …..just my opinion

Praying we don’t sign O’Donnell, the Ayrshire Lustig
