If Scott McKenna ever joins he has a major task to win over supporters.

The Aberdeen defender was first linked with in August 2018 but the Dons turned down an offer believed to be close to £4.5m with a similar offer from Aston Villa rejected towards the end of the transfer window.

That window and ’s Champions League exit to AEK Athens was the beginning of the end for at the club but the McKenna story has surfaced during every subsequent window.

After missing out on McKenna in 2018 brought in on loan from Leicester with Chris Jullien costing £7m a year ago from Toulouse. At best McKenna’s career has stalled with injuries part of his problem. When football was suspended in March he was facing a lengthy time on the sidelines with another hamstring related injury.

At the start of this season he did submit a transfer request but with a contract running until June 2023 the club still has complete control of his future.

This morning in The Athletic the McKenna story resurfaced alongwith and David Turnbull, two more SPFL based players that have previously been linked with Celtic.

It would go against the grain but if are needing a new central defender they have Robbie Deas and available, they know the club inside out and enjoyed first team experience last season in the Championship with Alloa and Morton.
