Celtic are still showing an interest in Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna, according to Athletic journalist Kieran Devlin.

Speaking on the Cynic Agenda podcast, Devlin claimed that the Hoops are still eyeing a potential move for the 23-year-old as they look for a replacement for Jozo Simunovic, who they chose not to keep at the club.

McKenna, who is a boyhood Hoops supporter, handed in a transfer request last summer after clubs in England showed an interest in him, so it’s clear that he would be open to a move away from the Dons if the right offer came along.

Devlin revealed that he expects the Hoops to potentially look at a few Scottish-based players this summer given the current global events and as such, it’s no shock to see them still interested in McKenna.

Yes

No

As a back-up to Chris Jullien and Kris Ajer, McKenna could be a good option, given that he has shown he is a more than competent Premier League defender.

However, if Ajer leaves, as has been touted, then personally, I think Neil Lennon should look for a better first-choice player than the current Dons’ star.
