Sky Sports: Celtic receive emphatic response over fresh move for top flight star
Celtic have had a second bid for Motherwell goalkeeper Trevor Carson rejected, according to Sky Sports.
The broadcaster claim on their live transfer blog (31/01 08:07) on their website that the Steelmen made the emphatic decision to turn down a bid of £375,000 for the player, which was made before the Bhoys played Hearts on Tuesday night.
The Scottish Premiership league leaders have now reportedly had two bids for the player rejected, as they attempt to find a replacement for Craig Gordon who is out for three months with a knee injury.
The blog goes on to claim that the Bhoys may now turn to Dundee’s Scott Bain, who is currently on loan at Hibernian in an attempt to solve the problem position but as yet no bid has been made.
Football Insider verdict
The fact that Motherwell have rejected both bids for Carson so emphatically shows that seemingly have no interest in selling the player. It may now come down to how much Brendan Rodgers wants the player, and if he is willing to make a third bid to bring the player to Glasgow. He may now decide that enough is enough, and turn to other targets, such as the aforementioned Scott Bain, who is yet to play for Hibernian after leaving Dundee after a fallout with boss Neil McCann. It seems likely however that a new goalkeeper will be joining the Scottish Champions on deadline day, the big question is who will he be.
