Celtic have second bid for John McGinn rejected

Celtic have put themselves in pole position to qualify for the next qualifying round of the Champions League after cruising to victory against Alashkert.

The Bhoys travelled to Armenia on Tuesday evening and took a 3-0 advantage away with them, making them strong favourites to head into the next round of the competition.

Despite the ease in their manner to get their recent wins, including the 7-0 friendly win against Shamrock Rovers, it appears Brendan Rodgers’ side are struggling to get some of their transfer business done this summer.

According to reports by Sky Sports, the Hoops have had a second bid for Hibernian’s John McGinn rejected by the Edinburgh outfit.

It is understood that Rodgers’ side had offered a fee in the region of £2million for the highly-rated midfielder, however, it appears the Easter Road outfit are prepared to hold out for more or keep their star man.

The Verdict:

The Hoops are looking to add to their midfield ranks this summer with the departure of Stuart Armstrong to Southampton and would be looking to spend some of the money they had received from his sale to fund a deal for McGinn.

However, Hibs are currently standing firm on their valuation for the Scotland international, who has attracted plenty of interest from a number of clubs in England as well, and it remains to be seen whether the Bhoys will up their bid once again.
