Reports this morning claim Celtic have had a bid for John McGinn rejected by Hibernian after a day of talks about the player’s future.

John has been a long term target for Celtic, but Rodgers said in several occasions that he was better developing his talent at Hibernian under Neil Lennon the past few seasons.

With Stuart Armstrong leaving for Southampton it has left a hole in the Celtic squad the Celtic manager admitted he would like to fill.

So what happens next?

Celtic put in a bid in the region of £1.5million, which was deemed not good enough by the Hibs board.

The club will now have to look at upping their bid and more likely they will be thinking about using Scott Allan as part of the deal.

The Celtic midfielder spent the second half of the season at Easter Road, enjoying his football and telling fans on more than one occasion he would love to make it a permanent move.

With Allan not in Brendan Rodgers plans in any meaningful way, it could be the thing to get McGinn to Celtic Park.

Celtic will be wary about the fee and not want to go too high to land their man as he can be signed up for free in just 6 months time.
