Celtic Out Of The Race For Shane Long - Toon To Make Move?
01 July 2011 10:38
Celtic manager Neil Lennon insists Reading's valuation for Shane Long is too high for the club, but Newcastle could match the asking price. The Parkhead outfit had been linked with a close-season move for the Republic of Ireland international, but the Royals' £7million asking price is out of their league. Neil Lennon: "You're talking £7million and that is out of our remit." The 24-year-old ex-Cork City striker was on Alan Pardew's wish list at the start of the summer, and some reports suggest an offer will be made very soon. Long is currently on holiday, but said before his departure: “If a club comes in for me we will deal with it. But that hasn’t happened so it’s business as usual as far as I’m concerned.” Offer To NU-Mad Fans Continues Due to the amazing response from NU-Mad readers . we have decided to continue our offer for you to buy "Magpies In Europe" for the amazing price of £5.99.
