Kenny Shiels: Unhappy with Cammy Bell transfer saga

Shiels stated last week that Ipswich were one of a number of clubs interested in signing Bell, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

But Ipswich boss McCarthy subsequently said: "Do you want me to say it again? There's no truth in it. Is lying too strong a word?

"I've not spoken to him and if somebody from this club has spoken to him they've done it without me saying so. If that's the case then I'm going to be pretty cheesed."

The former Celtic defender's words infuriated Shiels, who retorted: "I've done nothing wrong and Mick is wrong.

"Ipswich Town haven't spoken to me about Cammy Bell and I never said that they had - I just said that there was interest from Ipswich Town.

"I'm surprised Mick didn't ring me to say, 'What's happening here because you're saying we're interested in your keeper and it's not the case. I expected some sort of call but it didn't come."

Shiels claimed he was contacted by an agent asking whether or not Bell had signed for Rangers, and that he should hold off as there was reported interest from Ipswich.

He said: "When the press asked me I just told them the truth. Obviously I don't want to lose the keeper so I didn't phone Ipswich and ask if they were interested.

"I've got nothing to hide. Will I try to phone Mick? I don't think I have to do anything."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
