Seems like we are scratching Kayals agents back more than anything.

His name does keep popping up everywhere. For every deal brokered it adds one year to Kayal's contract. Good business to me

Whilst he'll never be a starter when the current midfield is fit, he is still a Lawwell commercial tool and will not be sold cheaply.

If Jordan Henderson is worth 20...

Dont worry, half way through Comolli speech about how he's an SPL player and not even starting for Celtic, Lawwell will slip him a slip of paper and on it will be written the revenue that Ki's registration generates for Celtic and then you'll have Comolli running out of the room to ring Dalglish or Henry.

Peter Lawwell is so tight that if you shoved a lump of coal up his arse he'd **** a diamond the next morning!

I have met someone a few times who's worked under him at Celtic and it's been made very clear to me how tight he is, his tightness has cost Celtic money as well.

Liverpool were actually interested in Lawell himself for a while... he'd be well capable of doing a v good job for an EPL team.

In fairness to Lawwell, he rejected an approach from Arsenal there 1-2 years ago and he has been a very good CEO but nobody is perfect and I though he was for a good stretch tbh

Not to sound like a broken record, his refusal to pay that little bit extra above the clubs evaluation of Steven Fletcher & James McCarthy cost us SPL's and UCL windfalls. Hindsight is an exact science but he should have trusted his manager more when they say "we need this player no matter the cost".

Think of the money wasted on Daryl Murphy's, Marc Antoine Fortunes & N'Guemos because of not trusting people that know the game. Strachan could have done a 4IAR and we'd never witnessed what Mowbray did
