Celtic To Re-Ignite Interest In Wolves Striker

SPL side set sights on Molineux forward.

Check in to St Mirren vs Celtic

Wolves are preparing themselves for a summer bid from Celtic for striker Kevin Doyle, according to the Express.

Neil Lennon has been a long time admirer of the Irish international and recently described him as “ideal foil” for some of the other members of his strike force.

At 29, Doyle could be tempted to head north of the border as Wolves have failed to mount the promotion push that was expected from them after suffering relegation from the Premier League last season. The West Midlands side are currently in 23rd position in the Championship and could be relegated again as Dean Saunders struggles to put together a run of form to propel them up the table.

Celtic had been interested in Doyle in January and reports suggest that a loan deal had been in place before Wolves pulled the plug at the last minute.

Currently with six goals in 36 games this season, a move to Celtic would almost certainly guarantee silverware for the player as well as a foray into European football.

“I’m a big admirer of Kevin. You need to look at the overall performance and what you want from him. I just felt he could make us better. We might have given him a lease of life.” Lennon said.

A fee of around £2 million could be enough to bring Doyle to Parkhead.
