Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern were stunned to read of the Reds interest in Celtic striker Georgios Samaras on Saturday, however Scottish journalist Tom English was on hand to dismiss the idea after speaking to Neil Lennon.
“It’s just speculation, someone taking a flyer,” said Lennon after their comprehensive 3-1 win against Kilmarnock where Samaras netted the third.
“I’m not sure if anyone will want to leave just now, the way things are going. Samaras has been a huge player for the club. He’s been through a lot and has come out the other side and you can see what the fans think of him. I don’t think he’d be wanting to leave in too much of a hurry.”
The Greek star was linked with a £5 million switch to Anfield in a number of yesterday’s papers after his performances for the Scottish side during their remarkable Champions League campaign. However Liverpool fans won’t be too surprised that it is unlikely to happen.
