Pete O’Rourke on the latest Celtic transfer rumour

It’s always inevitable that when the Celtic team perform, pundits and reporters will start to link our players to other clubs.

When Kyogo was fit and banging them in, he was being touted for a move to the English Premier League.

Callum McGregor was linked numerous times with a move when Brendan Rodgers left for Leicester City.

But as usual, nothing concrete ever materialised or ever does when these rumours surface and, with my green tinted specs on, it does smack of mischief making from the tabloids.

But after his stunning displays against Hearts and in the Glasgow Derby, Reo Hatate was next on the list to be linked with a move away after another pundit made some strange claims about the Japanese midfielders valuation.

But transfer specialist Pete O’Rourke seems to have put an end to any of that talk with his latest comments on GiveMeSport.

When asked about the future of Hatate, he said, “I think Celtic fans are enjoying having Hatate right now and I don’t think the player will be in a rush to leave any time soon.

“He seems to be enjoying his football and seems to have a lot of trust and faith in Ange Postecoglou.”

Having only just arrived in the country, it really is amazing that he is being linked to the EPL in just two short months.

It is little wonder Ange Postecoglou called out the media ‘lies’ towards the end of the January window.
