Even in the silly season this one stood out- and delivered record traffic for the Crystal Palace Transfers HQ Twitter account. Almost 600 replies in 18 hours, 90% from Celtic fans put the Eagles right on the value of Callum McGregor.

A little known French site decided to launch a £7m flyer, in these times of Chinese Whispers it soon snowballed with attention seekers all over it.

McGregor is the outstanding player in Scotland by some distance, the country that produced Kieran Tierney, John McGinn and Andy Robertson for the EPL. The Celtic captain is in that elite bracket.

As recently as mid June McGregor was down in London. Alongside a Chelsea reserve he bossed the show against the acclaimed duo of Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips. When wonder boy Jack Grealish came on he was reminded that he was the second best loanee at Notts County eight years ago.

The Celtic board are always keen on a sale, the Balance Sheet Bhoys like to show a profit but this is one flyer that won’t be landing any time soon.
