CHRIS SUTTON has taken to his RecordSport column to call out the ‘cheek’ of Brendan Rodgers if the former Celtic boss does officially make a bid for Callum McGregor.
The player has been linked with a move to Leicester in recent days with an absurdly figure of just £10million being floated around.
Sutton believes the club need to be strengthening that area of the park and basically the whole team. If Celtic were to get rid of Callum McGregor it would leave a massive hole in the team.
“There’s been talk about Brendan Rodgers taking McGregor to Leicester City butI would be stunned if that happened.” Sutton explained.
“Not only would it be some cheek from Rodgers after the way he left the club but it would also be a major decision for Celtic to sell such an important player.
“They should be strengthening the squad rather than weakening it further. There’s still work to be be done and the right- back situation needs to be addressed pretty quickly after Mikael Lustig all but confirmed he’d be leaving.”
Celtic hold all the cards with McGregor being under a lengthy contract plus the midfielder has never given anyone indication he’d like to leave.
Sutton is certainly right that Rodgers would have a brass neck to even make the bid but after the past four months we wouldn’t put it past him.
