Maloney said 4 million will get them to the table but we won’t accept anything under 5 million, can see them offering cash plus a player like Sorro, I say Sorro because he is the type of player we need if Gogic leaves.

Why would 4 million get you to a table just to be rejected below 5 anyway?
When did shaun say this?

I'd take Soro, decent player that would fit in here, cash plus player deal may suit us.

Their rag is running it already

It's mug clickbait and you clicked along with loads of Celtic supporters and a few Hibs supporters.
Job done by the Glasgow Times to keep the click reliant advertising revenues up.
Over-ought football supporters are a great and easily triggered source.

So we now have another confirmed arrival in Clarke, while Jamie Gullan has departed. Good to see the business getting done early.

He’s been the one threat up front on numerous occasions.
There’s some dafties slate just about everyone at Hibs so I don’t pay them much heed.
Boyle is ‘proven’ on the field and a top player in teamwork.
Anyone you buy might not be either far less both.
I’d keep him.

I agree.

Neither Celtic nor Hibs are influenced newspaper slavers.
Our opinions are as relevant as a newspaper guys i.e. both irrelevant.
My opinion is that Celtic are not interested in buying Boyle.
They can get far better value in Japan.
I could be right and I could be a meringue
.
P.S. IMO If they did offer Ron £3 million for Martin he would have him gift wrapped and delivered to Darkheid.
We could buy a half dozen good prospects for that sort of cash.

Their Manager has come out and spoke Highly of Boyler, not from a rag the actual Manager

Doesn't mean they're signing him though?
He'd speak highly of Messi if asked.

How do you know what the Celtic Managers targets or any other managers targets are, me and others have pointed out with their Aussie team connection maybe a factor that there is something in this, we will have just to wait and see.

I never said he categorically wasn't, I said it doesn't mean he is.

I’ll be amazed if Celtic sign Martin Boyle. That would involve them playing a substantial fee to another Scottish club for a winger, when they already have a glut of wide players.

We turned down £3 Million for Nisbet yet you think for that he'd deliver Boyle gift wrapped??!!

True, I remember folk thinking Colin Nish wasn't very good. Come to think of it that might have been me :53:

Okay lets examine this.
If Birmingham had offered £3 million upfront for 23 year old Nisbet Ron would have driven the laddie to Birmingham himself.
What Birmingham probably offered was something like £1.5 million, to be paid in two installments with a ton of added extra's based on unlikely scenario's e.g. another £1 million if they were promoted to the EPL and another £500k if they survived their 1st EPL season and Kevin scored 20 goals.
In essence you would only see £1.5 million from a headline figure of £3 million.
We had a 23 year old international striker on a long contract and the offer wasn't high enough to make RG sell.
The other aspect is neither Hibs nor Birmingham would have told the press how much had been offered for the player. They would say something like a substantial fee and the newspaper would then make up a number and print it.

Lets look at the Boyle scenario now.
Martin will be 29 in 3 months time. If Celtic or anyone else buy him for £3 million in this window they do so in the knowledge that in April 2025 he will be 32 and in all likelihood will be worth brussel sprout. Hence Ron would currently bite the hand of anyone offering £3 million for Martin because like Porteous the sell is getting harder. In Martin's case it's his age and in Porteous case it is the time remaining on his contract.

Celtic are unlikely to spend big on a player that is nearly 29 as mentioned above. At a push they on occasion do so for a younger player they can tie down longterm that has resale value*. Boyle does not fit into either category. Hibs are not in a position where they have to sell either as they may have been in the past. I'd be amazed if Celtic came in for Boyle and with a decent bid. Funny all this popping up when Hibs are due to play at Parkhead on the 17th. Everytime Hibs have a big game this happens usually against one of the erse cheeks. Perhaps the Evening News can start spinning ridiculous stories about the smellies?
