City Slash Asking Price For Celtic Bound Samaras

City Slash Asking Price For Celtic Bound Samaras

Manchester City has bowed to pressure from SPL side Celtic, who, apparently are starved of cash, and has relented to the poultry offer of £1million for striker Georgios Samaras.

Greek international Samaras made the move up north to Parkhead in January in a loan; however, Celtic boss Gordon Strachan is so short of money the original asking price of £3m had to be reduced just to off-load the Manchester City failure.

The 23-year-old made 16 appearances in the Celtic jersey since joining, scoring a mere five goals in the process.

Samaras is expected to put pen to paper within days.

I'm sure we could pay more if we valued him higher but worth a punt for £1 million. Just a squad player at end of the day.

Easy money. Nae arrogance but he's moved up (albeit to a leesser league) a level, because playing for Celtic is the finest honour a player can achieve, even more so than wearing the shirt of the 'Self proclaimed' biggest club in the world Man U, aye right. Hail Hail!!!

Fee admittedly lower than anticipated, but it's another also-ran player off the books, and a window of opportunity for our quality young strikers to break into the first team squad (Evans, Sturridge, etc.). Enough said!!!
