The English summer transfer window may already be closed, but we’re already getting silly Celtic stories in advance of the January window opening next year.

Hoops defender Kieran Tierney has been linked with a ‘cut-price’ exit to Tottenham Hotspur by The Daily Mirror today, a transfer they say could be forced by the club’s exit from the UEFA Champions League.

Apparently we have been hit so ‘hard in the pocket’ after the defeat to AEK Athens, meaning we could more than half our valuation of the left-back, to £10m.

Meanwhile, The Express report that we’re ‘cash strapped’, again reporting that Tottenham are interested in the player.

Of all the ridiculous transfer rumours this summer, this may be the worst yet.

As most Celtic fans know, the club don’t budget for UEFA Champions League cash specifically and while our lack of participation in the group stages of this year’s tournament is undoubtedly a financial blow, it doesn’t suddenly make our biggest and brightest stars cheap meat in the transfer market.

The club clearly value Tierney highly and just because we’ve missed out on the big competition for the first time in three seasons, that won’t change anytime soon.

He signed a six-year contract just last year don’t forget. £10m will never be enough, not in the immediate future anyway.

Can you see Kieran Tierney leaving Celtic soon? Share your thoughts in the comments below…

  • Its just click bait… Either started in the Express or the Mirror… Club has upwards of £30 million in the bank. If we knocked back £13m for Ntcham, why would we accept £10m for KT… absurd, journalism hitting new lows

  • We are getting ready to build a hotel, casino, museum, fanzone…Will that be made of lego.Celtic have Billionaire backers plus the Emirates are pushing the plans through..We have millions banked 55.000 season tickets sold..We dont need to sell Hoopy never mind our players..SKIDDY TRAYNOR is at his shit again..Compared to Wonga from ibrokes we are in complete control let them bargain hunt while we go for gold AGAIN……

  • Celtic don’t need to sell any player especially the future of the club it’s young players KT will not be sold in the near or not so near future and the media need to get a grip they know nothing about celtic and never will about the loyalty players like KT have for the club we don’t relay on European money the way EPL teams do maybey when celtic get the same money as they do and a fair crack at the wip in the European cup like not having to play 4 qualafieing rounds to play in the so called champions league witch is clearly not anymore when teams who finish 4th in the EPL get through and haven’t won their league’s in years
