NEIL LENNON has put a £5million price tag on his star midfielder after speculation over John McGinn’s future ramped up this week.

The Irishman knows he has a talent on his hands and refuses to allow the player to go on the cheap.

Even though there’s some sense in what Neil is saying, there is no way Celtic will pay that amount for John.

Hibs broke their transfer record fee 10 years ago thanks to Celtic when they paid £4.4million for Scott Brown. While John has great potential, it looks unlikely that Celtic would break Hibs transfer record once again to land the midfielder.

Speaking about his player, Neil knows John will leave at some point:  “It is inevitable with the progress John is making that there will be interest in him.

“He has a price. I think in this day and age, £5m would cover it.

“I value him very highly, as we all do here, and we won’t sell ourselves short if the bids come in for him.”

Celtic have a large number of midfielders already with Lewis Morgan and Ryan Christie both coming back into the fold next season.

It’s thought it could be a summer of turnaround with a few players stalling on Celtic deals.

  1. Neil Lennon needs to get a grip. He is worth no more than half of 5 million. No one will pay 5 million for McGinn. Nonsense. McGeoucn has looked better every time I have seen Hibs play, which is admittedly not that much. And he wouldn’t fetch 1.5 million. I suppose the Hibs manager needs to get as much as he can for his players.

  2. Great move for both clubs , Hibs could use 5m , Lenny would strengthen other areas and challenge for 2nd next season .HAIL HAIL.
