Celtic fans react as Crystal Palace reportedly offer £7m for Hoops midfielder
Crystal Palace are reportedly looking to raid Celtic this summer, but not just for Odsonne Edouard. Reports claim that Palace have tabled a £7million offer to sign Celtic skipper Callum McGregor. Unsurprisingly, this has been met with utter derision by Celtic fans – who think McGregor is worth more.
One of new Celtic gaffer Ange Postecoglou’s first decisions as manager was to pick the club’s new captain – and there was only really one option. He made the correct, yet obvious choice to hand McGregor the armband in place of Scott Brown. The 28-year-old has played 333 times for Celtic.
What are Celtic fans saying as Palace make McGregor bid?
Palace have been strongly reported as a club keen on Edouard and the likes of Ryan Christie and Kris Ajer have been linked with English sides. Of course, Ajer is now at Brentford. But Palace are now looking to lure McGregor down south and have made an offer of £7million.
That is according to Homme Du Match. They say that the £7million offer could prove tempting to Celtic, despite the importance of McGregor to the Parkhead club – not just because he is captain. Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to laugh off Palace and their bid for McGregor.
