Celtic would have tempted Doyle

Celtic would have tempted Doyle

Kevin Doyle has confessed that he could have been tempted with the chance to have swapped Molinuex for a shot at glory with Celtic in the SPL.

Transfer deadline day in all fairness was a bit of a dud.

In the build up we had all of Dean Saunders comments about freshening up the squad by moving players on and moving players in, but in the end not a lot happened and that reflected throughout all of England.

Sky Sports News spent the day working themselves up into a frenzy as they always do and they flicked over to the rather lovely Kate Riley because Norwich throughout the day attempted to sign Celtic's Gary Hooper.

After what appeared to be the ninetieth rejection a twist appeared to happen late in the day that could have suggested that the two clubs were close to agreeing a fee and that was Celtic's beat-the-deadline bid for Kevin Doyle.

Throughout the summer Doyle always said that he was happy to stay with Wolverhampton Wanderers, but the pull of UEFA Champions League football and an almost guaranteed Championship medal with Celtic would have left him tempted and contemplating his options.

'They are in a fantastic position, going into the Champions League last 16 and at the top of their league, and it would have been a great opportunity at a massive club for four or five months.' he told Sky Sports.

He continued: 'But, in the end, the chairman at Wolves convinced me that they wanted me to stay on, so it was as simple as that.

'Once the club decided I was staying, that was it, that was the end of it. It's a very good club, Wolves, a very big club. The aim was to get back promoted.

'It's not going to happen this year now, but I still have two and a half years of my contract with Wolves and hopefully in that two and a half years, we can get ourselves promoted and back to the Premier League.'

Accrington Stanley must seem a better prospect at this point ... Still NOTHING from the board about why we singed no one, still NOTHING about why we appear to be in financial trouble after 3 very profitable years in the prem and less than a 1/3 of the monies from player sales re-invested in the club ... I'm ready for any protests petitions whetever, lets get rid of these clowns even if it means dropping down a league or two and starting over. *****ers

Well that just shows the calibre of player we have, that he isn't willing to stay and fight for the team but would rather go win a load of worthless tin pot medals and play two champions league games! Get Rid.

Potential relegation to League One or Champions League football - sounds like he did not need too much persuading to stay but he does go on to somehow say good things about the club rather than spitting his dummy out. I would say he will go in the summer but to be honest I am not so sure why he continues to attract such attention. I have stuck up for him for years now but there comes a point when goals per game.... patience has to run out. DS said he will get him scoring again, by playing him as a forward I anticipated, then played him on the bench in favor of pumping balls up to chunk. Doyle could of at least brought those long balls down and held them up for the midfield. Chunk went on to miss two sitters - whether Doyle would have converted them we won't know because he was picking up splinters. Amazing how everyone has given up on the season considering how many games are left, guess Dean was not able to change the mentality or breath some confidence into them. In four games he has (sensibly) gone from talking about still making the play offs to our main our of staying in this division. At least he is being sensible I suppose. I am actually bored of writing because none of this S&it should be going on. I wonder why I bother investing my time in anything to do with them considering what they have, or more to the point have not done in the latest transfer window and of greater significance the shocking mismanagement of the club over the past two years.
