Ed - i'm hearing from inside the Celtic camp today that SFC have made an improved offer of around 8.5m {Ed007's Note - There is a rumour around Glasgow that a deal will be announced later in the week. I think it is just a rumour though, I don't know if any concrete bid has been placed, McCourt has said he wants to stay in Glasgow for another year.}

8.5 mill for paddy mccourt ? that seems a quite high

Who's this 'concrete' chap then?

The Hooper rumour is BS!

Celtic have started negotiations with Hooper over a new contract - all over scottish press today.

Hooper is paid a lot less than other big names at Celtic and wants an improved offer to bring him in line with others at the club.

I suspect his agent is making mischief in order to strengthen his hand!

17 for Blackburn that's good it's hard to get one goal for a team that bad

Agree2 Disagree1

8.5m for McCourt?? 1.5m more like.

I heard that we could be getting in Yakubu from Blackburn, what does everyone think.

Believable9 Unbelievable22

Hes rubbish and old, we need a young pacey player

Agree19 Disagree6

Not keen on a overrated ex skate any more news on Hooper ed? {Ed014's Note - The club is aware that Hooper want to leave. So far Southampton, Reading and Galatasaray are showing real interest, reports that Everton are also interested seem wide of the mark.}

Agree11 Disagree4

Ed- i thought hooper said he wanted to stay with celtic , or have i missed something {Ed001's Note - he did say it initially, but then, in the last week or so, his rep has been contacting clubs who have shown interest. Apparently it is about getting himself in England contention, he wants to be considered and knows he won't be considered while playing in Scotland. I have no idea if Southampton will bid, but they certainly contacted Celtic to ask the question of price.}

Agree5 Disagree1

Yakubu has scored in 40% of his matches since 2003 and 17 goals for a terrible Blackburn side. I'd hardly call that rubbish.

Agree10 Disagree3

How old is the yak? I didn't think he was that past it. Not sure he'd go down that well with the fans mind.

Agree7 Disagree1

Hes only 29

Agree1 Disagree6

17 goals in a poor Blackburn side, that's hardly bad?
What are you expecting Messi & RVP to make way instead?

Back to the Yak, he's proven, strong, quick and has shown he can score goals - just what Saints need to top off the attack with Lambert & Sharp.

Agree6 Disagree2

29 stone

Agree5 Disagree2

I dont careif he is fat and slow he can bang in goals fed the yak and he will score. jermain defoe would be a signing

Agree3 Disagree0

Don't want an ex skate. Fat lazy muppet. Lambert is far better. Just want a REAL pacey sharp shooter to partner. Defoe would be great, but dream on I think. I think European punt.
