    Lennys a tough negotiator, he brung in the system we used during his time by refusing to be undersold on our players. He started to build the club up to what it is now.

    He knows we’ve got money and won’t want his best player away for anything less then he thinks he’s worth.

    Do I think McGinns worth the figures being flung about? Do I *.

    Did I think the same about Broony? Aye :giggle1:

    A player is only worth what a club is willing to pay we paid 9m no problem for Edouards undoubted potential.

    The right stance..

    If a club in England do come in from nowhere, fair enough but we offered a fair enough deal in my opinion and wouldn't go higher..

    Hibs thought they were being clever and telling the press they rejected our bids and how much we were offering, then naming their price in the media.

    Now Lennon has came out talking about how unsettled McGinn is and how he wants the move we can do nothing and make them sweat.

    It’s backfired on them spectacularly :giggle1:

    And people thought Lawwell should just fling money at Hibs and ‘help them’...

    There seems to be an opinion among some supporters he's not a glamorous enough signing he wont do well and think of christie and allan etc and see it as uninspiring or not worth the hassle,most of our best players in history are scottish and far more success Morgan will get his chance this season too.

    Lennon isnt involved in the negotiations. By his own admission.
    Stubbs and Dempster played a huge part in restoring the team. Lennon took over a team ready made to achieve promotion.

    Madness from hibs really, the lad has just a year left on his contract surely they must see that the deal offered is more than fair for a player who 1) wants to go to Celtic and 2) can do just that for FREE in 6 months time.

    Serves them right for trying to fleece us for cash. Pedro will be laughing all the way up his heated driveway if no English club comes in before 9th August.

    I doubt they have tbh, and even still, its public knowledge that McGinn favours a move to Celtic anyway so I'm sure our concrete interest would be enough for him to refuse any other offer until the winter window.

    Quite a lot of assumptions being made.
    I have read nowhere that Hibs have come out officially and named any price. A fee of £3m is being speculated upon.

    To say anything has backfired is premature, that can only really be concluded at the close of the transfer window.
    It ultimately comes down to how badly Mcginn wants to be play for Celtic and/or if his head can be turned for a team down south and the money they can offer.

    WE’ve been in this exact position with Hibs before mate, 2009 with Stephen Fletcher, if he’s the man that Rodgers wants just go * get him. Cost us dearly last time we played this game with them, more so than it would if we just didn’t do the lowballing etc.

    I think Lawwell enjoys a back and forth with PEtrie tbh, only other guy in the league who I thinks properly competent.

    Not sure if it's a thing, but I don't really want this Lawwell-Petrie thing to escalate into something it doesn't need to. I wouldn't like to see it become a Hibs-Huns type situation with an almost complete carpet ban on transfer dealings.

    If we cant agree a price, so be it. No need for it to go any further than that, we go again in January.

    CELTIC manager Brendan Rodgers has refused to rule out a third bid for Hibernian midfielder John McGinn.

    Hibs head coach Neil Lennon confirmed on Wednesday that his club had rejected a second offer for the Scotland international, who has entered the final year of his contract.

    When asked if he could foresee another offer going in, Rodgers said: "I am distant from that, so time will tell.

    "That's something for the clubs to organise. I coach the team, I manage the team. We target players but ultimately any agreements have to be between the two clubs.

    "We respect John is still very much a Hibs player and unless there's an agreement... like I say, it's going to be a difficult one. That's really between the clubs."

    You don't know what Hibs are demanding, they could have a £4-5m price tag on a relatively unproven player who has 12 months left on his contract.

    If the clubs are two far apart, then we move on. You don't get everything you want in football.
