Kevin Doyle: Loan move to Celtic would have appealed to Wolves hitman

Kevin Doyle: Loan move to Celtic would have appealed to Wolves hitman

Doyle was linked with a loan switch to Parkhead on the final day of the month as speculation over Gary Hooper's Celtic future continued.

Both men remained at their current club when the window slammed shut but, asked if he was tempted by the opportunity to move north of the border, Doyle said: "Obviously.

"They are in a fantastic position, going into the Champions League last 16 and at the top of their league, and it would have been a great opportunity at a massive club for four or five months.

"But, in the end, the chairman at Wolves convinced me that they wanted me to stay on, so it was as simple as that.

"Once the club decided I was staying, that was it, that was the end of it. It's a very good club, Wolves, a very big club. The aim was to get back promoted.

"It's not going to happen this year now, but I still have two and a half years of my contract with Wolves and hopefully in that two and a half years, we can get ourselves promoted and back to the Premier League."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
