Dortmund drop Tierney interest
Borussia Dortmund have decided to cool their interest in Kieran Tierney, because they think he’s too expensive.
Kicker have reported that Dortmund don’t want to pay the £25 million asking price for the talented full-back.
That leaves perhaps leaves Arsenal as the frontrunners, with Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers having dismissed rumours of a reunion this summer.
£9 million Rodgers
Leicester City paid Celtic £9 million to make Brendan Rodgers their new manager, Sky Sports has reported.
Rodgers jumped ship last month despite the Hoops being in pursuit of a Treble Treble, leaving fans enraged.
Apparently Rodgers had a release clause of £6 million, but then his backroom staff consisting of assistant manager Chris Davies, first-team coach Kolo Toure and head of performance Glen Driscoll pushed the fee up.
Dundee manager Jim McIntyre has described Celtic as a ‘different animal’ ahead of the sides’ clash this weekend.
Dundee are on a losing streak at the moment having lost to Hearts, Rangers and Hibernian in their last three games.
McIntyre praise his side’s efforts after the 1-0 loss to Hearts, but fired a big warning ahead of the Celtic game.
He said, as quoted by The Evening Telegraph: “The next game is as tough as they come and Celtic won’t be as direct as Hearts, that’s for sure.
“They like to play through the lines. Their movement is fluid.
“We are facing another good side but they play a completely different way to Hearts.”
