Some Celtic fans aren’t convinced by the rumours linking the club with a move for Barnsley defender Liam Lindsay.
As reported by The Daily Star this weekend, the Hoops are one of a number of clubs interested in signing him this summer, with Barnsley believed to be value him as worth £5m.
That may seem steep for a League One player but he’s been a real stand-out for them this season as they look to win automatic promotion back to the Championship, where the 23-year-old played over 40 games last season.
So far this term he’s helped his team to keep 20 clean sheets in 39 league matches, no mean feat at all. It would appear he is playing at a level beyond his current station.
Hoops supporters aren’t entirely happy with the reports linking him with a move north though, believing that the club are looking to make a cheap signing rather than going for proven quality in a quality league.
Are they misguided or do they have a point?
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
