Why Celtic should go for John Mcginn despite having a bid rejected
It seems like even the Scottish Gods can’t stop Celtic from winning the league. The club have lifted their second consecutive league title in two years, such is their dominance in the Scottish Premier League.
Celtic finished atop the table with a total of 82 points, nine ahead of second-placed Aberdeen. The club are playing an attractive and appealing style of football under former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. Everything seems to be on the up as the club prepare for the next campaign.
However, Rodgers must bolster his squad ahead of the new campaign. Although Celtic have been domestically dominant, the club haven’t been able to keep up in Europe.
The Scottish champions have been linked with Hibernian midfielder John Mcginn. Hibernian have already reportedly rejected a £1.5million bid from Celtic but the champions are not done with negotiations yet. Rodgers is said to be a huge admirer of the player and he must make a move for him once more.
The 23-year-old midfielder joined the Hibs in 2015, going on to make a total of 100 appearances, scoring 12 goals. Last season, the midfielder made a total of 35 appearances in the Scottish Premiership, scoring 5 goals across that time.
He’s got pace and ability on the ball and he often brings a creative dimension with his vision and range of passing.
He has a total of nine caps for the Scottish national team and is one their budding young players. The midfielder is now entering the final year on his contract, meaning this is the ideal time for Celtic to lure him.
Hibernian boss Neil Lennon is reportedly holding out for a higher asking price for the Glasgow-born midfielder. But considering the fact that he is in the final year of his contract, there’s a good chance the price could be lowered.
Brendan Rodgers should certainly go for the midfielder, who could blossom into one of the best players in the years to come. The asking price is relatively low when compared to today’s market. McGinn’s arrival will certainly boost Celtic’s chances in the Champions League next season and take them one step closer to winning the league once again.
