NEIL MCCANN has bemoaned the way Celtic took his best player away on transfer deadline day.
The Scottish Champions got the Jack Hendry transfer done and dusted with just minutes to spare, however, Dundee knew of the clubs interest for the whole of the window which makes McCann’s moaning a little peculiar.
The feeling was at Celtic, that it was just a matter of time before they got their man. Dundee rejected an initial bid but the two parties were in dialogue throughout the window.
McCann says the late deal left him somewhat disappointed.
“The disappointing thing for me was how late in the day Celtic left it to decide to get their business done.
“It left me with no time whatsoever to get any business done myself.
“I was desperate to keep Jack, but I was mindful that should Celtic come in with the right offer that the club can’t turn down, I have to have someone who can step in and bolster the squad.
“I wasn’t allowed to do that because I can’t sign a player at one minute to 12 because it takes a bit of times to go through and by that time these players may have other options.
