    hayes linked with celtic in a couple of the scottish gossipy papers today. unsurprisingly on one hand, but i wouldn't have thought celtic would go for him. however rodgers did work with him at reading which i wasn't aware of so who knows.

    No quotes from either manager, or the player himself. This all seems to be based on Rodgers having a word with Hayes (who he worked with at Reading) after the cup final

    Had lost track of Shaughnessy. His brother's contract was extended at Leeds too wasn't it? Big year ahead for these boys next year.

    The Hayes to Celtic rumour is still doing the rounds. Daily Mail (not the Gospel) reckon a bid has been accepted for 1.2m:

    Interesting. Celtic throwing their weight around Bayern Munich style.

    Hayes has 2 years left on his contract, practical for his club to look for best transfer terms, player wants to go, Celtic make an offer which is better than 3 other English championship clubs.
    There's no throwing the weight around, as in tempting away a player away from a club desperate to keep him.
    It's a handshake deal.

    He's a sub for Forrest or a replacement when Forrest is not fully fit (back problems).

    It wasn't a criticism of Celtic, or Bayern either for that matter, it's just the way of the world unfortunately. Two years is a significant amount of time remaining on the contract of a player who turns 30 next month I think, there is no immediate panic for Aberdeen to cash in I wouldn't have thought, just a case of damage limitation if they're resigned to losing him anyway.

    Hayes wants to go? Well he probably does now that Celtic are in for him. It's not like he's been beating down the door for a move and he signed a new contract extension at Aberdeen as recently as February, despite Cardiff trying to sign him the previous month.

    Celtic are probably on a shortlist of the only clubs Aberdeen would prefer not to sell their players to, but as you suggest they're left with little choice if the player's head is turned and Celtic offered the most money. To me that is Celtic throwing their weight around, using their status and superior financial muscle to secure one of their closest challenger's best players.

    I don't see how that's so different to Bayern coming knocking for Dortmund players which, again, they're entitled to do. It happens in every league to a certain extent but I think the reason I drew a comparison to Bayern is because the SPL and Bundesliga are now over before they begin in terms of the eventual winner, yet the gap is allowed to get bigger and bigger as they can pick off their closest rival's best players.

    The fact that you suggest Hayes would only be a bit part player or back up to Forrest emphasises the muscle Celtic have even further, that they could take one of Aberdeen's most influential players just to bolster their own squad a little.

    Obviously Celtic aren't on Bayern's level with the way they dismantled Dortmund's team, I was only making a throwaway remark about this 's particular transfer if it goes through, wasn't really expecting the statement to be analysed so thoroughly.

    Not just thoroughly, but succinctly also.

    A succinct evaluation that posed more questions than answers I think.

    Might be relevant to the rumoured transfer to Celtic, it's been reported that Rogers has opened talks with Man City to sign Roberts on a permanent deal

    I'm glad he's on our team now rather than facing up to him.

    How dare you make such an insinuation. Anton was a very valuable fringe player at Swindon Town in league one last season on their run to relegation.
