McKay has scored 18 goals for Inverness so far this season and he has been linked with a move away during the January transfer window.

Burnley, Peterborough United and Rotherham United are all reported to have shown an interest in the Northern Ireland international, who has 18 months left on his contract.

However, Hughes does not want to lose his leading scorer and stressed that any bids for McKay need to be made within the next week.

"There has been no bid put in to this club for Billy," said Hughes in the Daily Record.

"He is happy here and very popular in the dressing room. I think if that remained the case for another year he would love it.

"If there was a bid to come in and you were going to sell him it would have to be within the next week.

"In that scenario you have to go out and find a replacement. But we don't want to sell Billy.

"He has 18 months left on his contract, I want him to be here next year and he wants to be here. Hopefully that will be the case even after he scores his hat-trick against Aberdeen on Saturday!"

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
