Celtic are ramping up efforts to recruit ahead of their pre-season tour of Austria and Switzerland next week, but one man who will NOT be on that trip will be Aberdeen’s Scott McKenna with the club reportedly having a whopping £5million bid rejected.

Had Aberdeen accepted the bid, it would have smashed their previous transfer record for a transfer fee received by the club – the current sitting at £1.75m for Eoin Jess to Coventry City back in 1996!

The Dons defender was subject to a Celtic bid back in January of around £3.5m but SunSport are reporting overnight the Scottish Champions have gone in with a £5m bid in order to entice the Pittodrie club.

Unfortunately for Celtic, the player is under contract for another four years and the Dons aren’t in a rush to sell unless they get THEIR valuation for the player which is £10m. Some may roll their eyes at the figure but if that’s what they want then some club will have to pay it for the move to happen.

Celtic should not go near that valuation for the Aberdeen defender. If they have £5m to spend on a player then we can go out and be more creative than going back to failed January targets.


  1. McKenna plays like a Gary Cauldwell in the latter stages of his career. Surely we could do better. He’s all over the place at goals.

  2. First Of All We Have To Applaud Our Club For That Offer Of £5 Million For The Dons McKenna, But If They Want To Hold Out For More Good Luck To Them, £5 Million For McKenna Was And Is A Fair Offer, We All Know That, Yes The Lad Who Is Also A Scottish Internationalist Has Still Got 3+ Years To Run On His Contract, Do I Think The Dons Manager And Or Chairman Are Just Trying To Hedge Their Bets, Hoping That Another Club Outwith The SPL Come In For The Scottish Internationalist With An Excessive Offer Than The Hoops Have Put In, I Honestly Do Not Think That This Shall Happen, £5 Million Is A Fair Offer And Aberdeen Should Accept Our Clubs Offer, The Dons Could Be Left With Jam All Over Their Faces, Here Is Another Young Scottish Lad That Can And Should Be Playing His Football Against Top European Clubs In The Champions League Or The Europa Club, This Is A Fantastic Opportunity For This Young Dons Player To Further Progress His Career With A Club That Win Trophies Domestically And Create And Play Football That Entertain The Celtic Supporters Every Week And He Could Be Part Of This Playing In The Green & White Hoops At Paradise, Aberdeen Are You Really So Complacent Or So Well Of Financially, All You Are Is What Can Be Described Is Greedy And Holding This Young Lad Playing For A Club That Is Successful And Play Top European Football Every Year, But Hey Yes He Is Your Player And If You Want To Hold Out And Wait For Over The Odds Of What £5 Million That Celtic Has Offered, Then Good Luck, [Sit Back And Consider] !!!
