The Robins sit just one point above bottom placed Barnsley in the Championship, and have reportedly offered £200,000 for the Scot, who is believed to be keen to return to England.

Kelly's contract expires at the end of the season, and while the former MK Dons player has not rejected the offer of a new contract, Shiels is hopeful he will stay.

Speaking to STV, Shiels said: "Liam is happy to stay with us. I'm sure he'll get plenty of offers but hopefully we can keep him at the club.

"In fact we would be keen to tie him to a new deal."

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.
