BBC Sport pundit Tam McManus has said that Celtic should retain their interest in Aberdeen centre-back Scott McKenna after failing with an approach during the summer transfer window. The Hoops were on the trail of the 22-year-old at the beginning of the season but a deal never materialised after Aberdeen slapped a £10m price tag on the defender’s head.
However, McManus has now revealed that the Hoops could land the centre-back for just half the value this month, although Aberdeen could have other plans on mind, he tweeted: “£5million for Scott McKenna would be a steal and a great bit of business for Celtic. Crying out for that type of centre-half for a while. I do think though if Aberdeen hold out until the summer someone in England would definitely pay more for him he’s perfectly suited to the English game.”
