CHRIS DAVIES believes Brendan Rodgers will be the man to break Celtic’s long standing £6million transfer record fee at some point in his Celtic tenure.

When asked if Brendan Rodgers would be backed if a fee over £6million was needed to secure a player, Davies seemed certain the manager would be.

“I think the club will support if it is the right player,” he said. “Brendan works closely with Peter and Dermot.

“If it is the right player that we all feel is worth that money, and can really take us forward, then I’m sure Brendan would be supported in that. We could just bring players in almost for the sake of it.

“You pay fees, they are not quite right but you are getting your numbers in. But to protect the club and make sure we are doing the right thing for them and the team, we want to make sure it is the right player.

We are of the belief that Brendan Rodgers will be the manager to break that record but breaking it for the sake of doing so would not be in the clubs best interest.

The manager must be sure the player adds value and can handle the pressure of a large transfer tag in Scottish football terms.

It was rumoured in the summer Celtic were offering Manchester City upwards of £7million for Patrick Roberts with the Manchester club refusing a permanent deal.


  1. Man City wanted the 12 million they paid Fulham and not a penny, have been told by two sources, our board would not sanction this

  2. of course he deserves the boards backing , and he will get it for right player , as chriss said has to be the correct player for the club , snd if one man knows the working of the club its brendan , we are still a good team but unfortunate to have been hit with injuries but all will come good for us sll remember in brendan we trust also our bhoys will give their alll so lets do the same support all at paradise hail hail the tic and god bless them all .

  3. Surely with so many midfield players out injured Roberts, Rogic, Hayes and Armstrong to name but a few we could possibly consider going with 2 up front. Be more offensive and let the smaller clubs be on the defensive. Unleash Dembele and Griffiths as a partnership it’s about time the rest of the SPL became reacquainted with the fear factor that they ALL! endured last season.

  4. Absolutely no chance of Celtic paying this kind of money. £30m x twice over last 2 seasons plus Van Dyke money and the rest and we still cling on to the biscuit tin. BR is in denial over defence and will haunt us continually in Europe.
