Kris Commons Believes Rival English Bidder For John McGinn Should Be a Concern For Celtic

Kris Commons believes a rival English bidder for John McGinn should be a concern for Celtic.

The former Hoops and Hibees midfielder has been looking on like the rest of us as one of his former teams go after another’s star player.

Celtic have reportedly had a third bid rejected for the influential Hibs man, with £2million believed to be their latest offer for his services.

Hibs appear to be standing firm on what their valuation of McGinn is, even though the Scotland international is going into the final year of his contract at Easter Road.

And Commons agrees with Hibs’ approach, while highlighting that Celtic should be concerned about a rival bidder coming from England.

Speaking to Daily Mail, per edinburghnews.scotsman.com, Commons said: “I’m always a believer that, if you want a player, go and get him. Just pay what’s expected.

“There have been rumours of £1.4m, £1.7m, now £2m. Celtic are clearly aware of what the asking price is. But they are trying to drag it out.

“The only concern for Celtic is if another team from down south comes in with an improved bid.

“With all the hype surrounding John McGinn and the fact he’s now a Scotland international, £2.5m is a snip for any team.”

McGinn is bound to be attracting attention from other clubs, but Celtic appear the only ones prepared to put forward a definite offer for the midfielder.

And with the end of the summer transfer window creeping closer, it’ll be interesting to see if the Hoops return with another offer for him.

Celtic fans – are you worried about someone else stealing in for McGinn?
