Coyle Gives Up on Riordan?

Coyle Gives Up on Riordan?

Clarets gaffer, Owen Coyle appears to have ended his interest in Celtic striker Derek Riordan according to the Sporting Life

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move South across the border in recent weeks but the club involved doesn't look like it will now be the Clarets. It would appear the club failed in a reported £400,000 bid for the striker which came nowhere near the £1 million valuation put on the player by Buoys boss, Gordon Strachan

Speaking also to the Daily Record, Coyle said the following:

'We made a bid for Riordan, it was turned down and that's that.'

He went on to say

'I'm looking a three or four different players at this moment in time. It's no secret we need one or two players to increase the squad but we will try to be selective and make sure it is the right player for this football club.'

Looks like we can strike this one off the list which is a shame! :-(

Coyle made a decent offer for Riordan . Unfortunately it was turneddown . I am given that the player insists on joining Burnley but the greed of a great club like Celtic is enormous just depriving both the club and the player .How sad?

Obviously £1 million is viewed as a rip-off even though we could probably afford it now after selling Gray. Time to move on

They want £500k apparently! Riordan has already said that he would love to come to Burnley! Think we should of tried a bit harder to get him myself.

You would think if we realy wanted him, we would have gone the extra mile to fork out an additional £100k though? I heard Celtic were wanting summat like £1 million which sounds a better reason for saying no?

Actually says he (Strachan) is demanding more than £500,000 , which could mean owt,perhaps they would have negotiated somewhere between £0.5-£1m?

Maybe it's a tactical play by OC? Riordan wants to come to Burnley, OC says he's leaving it, Celtic know he's unsettled and have a player that wants out! So we can go back in at a slightly higher price or they can come to us with what they're prepared to take for him!
