After a transfer frenzy of three signings in a week social media is desperately trying to uncover the next part of Brendan Rodgers’ transfer jigsaw.

A favoured tactic is to look back at the previous window and revisit the failed transfer targets of the summer. Bingo, .

Various sources, none with any sort of In The Know track record decided to go with the McKenna to Celtic story.

Rodgers and Derek McInnes have a respect for each other, Ryan Christie suited both clubs and Celtic have a few players badly in need of regular game time. Add in any two from Jonny Hayes, Lewis Morgan and Jack Hendry and everyone is a winner.

Following the ‘John McGinn scouting model’ Aston Villa were also on the trail of McKenna during the summer with suggestions that they offered a deal worth upto £6m shortly before the transfer window closed.

Villa have had a change of manager and languish in 1th place in the Championship with new owners twitchy about their promotion hopes.

Celtic’s need for a central defender or two has grown since they failed with two bids for McKenna in the summer. Centre half is the most critical position looking towards next season’s European qualifiers.

Tied to Aberdeen until 2023 on a contract that is unlikely to be paying him more than £4,000 a week McInnes has a problem on his hands with the player aware that he could get a juicy signing on fee and £20,000 plus elsewhere.

By February 1 we will all know whether there was anything to this particular twitter rumour.
