Report: Celtic on red alert after Rodgers favourite stalls on new deal, player is PL goal machine
By Harvey Byrne
Celtic have been alerted after Robert Snodgrass’ future at Hull has been thrown into doubt, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claimed on Saturday that the 20-time capped Scotland international had turned down a new contract with Mike Phelan’s team.
It is believed that attacking midfielder Snodgrass is unwilling to commit to his future with Hull’s Premier League status in major doubt, while owner Assem Allam continues to look to sell the club.
It is stated by the Record that Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers is a huge fan of the attacking midfield ace, who was also linked with joining Celtic in the summer.

The former Leeds man only has six months left on his current contract and could be purchased for a much lower fee than his true transfer value in January if Hull are to avoid losing him on a free.
The attacker has been a goal machine this season, scoring seven goals and supplying two assists in 18 appearances for the struggling Tigers this campaign.
He has been one of their bright spots in a dismal season and particularly influential in the Premier League, netting five times.
Football Insider verdict:
Snodgrass has been a star in England for many years now and it’s a surprise that Celtic haven’t moved for him sooner. He would add a greater level of depth to the Hoop’s team, but it is doubtful that he would get in the side over Scott Sinclair or Gary Mackay-Steven. However, given that Patrick Roberts is more than likely going to return to Manchester City once the season come’s to an end then there is definitely a space in the squad for Snodgrass. He won’t be the player to help Celtic improve on their poor recent Champions League form, but he will provide a solid addition.
