Brendan Rodgers as hinted Celtic will walk away from deal with Hibs if the deal doesn’t work for the club.
The Irishman hasn’t hidden his desire to bring John McGinn to Celtic Park but he knows if the deal doesn’t make sense for Celtic it won’t happen.
Asked if there’s a point in time where Celtic would walk away from the table, Rodgers was straight to the point.
“But if there comes a point in time where it’s not going to happen then of course, naturally, we might need to do that.
“We are already players down from last season.
We want to strengthen the squad – that’s important for us.
“I’m aware at this time that there also needs to be patience as well.”
Celtic know they can go back in for John in January should Hibs stick to their £4million fee which Celtic are unwilling to match.
