According to the Daily Mail, Celtic have seen their £1.5m bid for Brentford midfielder Romaine Sawyers rejected by the Griffin Park based outfit.
The midfielder is clearly wanted by the Bhoys this summer but their first salvo for him has been blown away by the London club who clearly want more if they are to even entertain the idea of selling him at all.
An energetic midfielder, Neil Lennon might be looking at him as a potential recruit if Olivier Ntcham leaves the club though it seems as though he’ll have to head back to the drawing board first of all.
What the Bhoys go to next bid-wise remains to be seen, of course, but you get the feeling with the way the English market is that we’ll have to go a fair bit higher than we have.
The coming days will probably show us what we’re thinking as a club over this one, then.
