A section of Rangers fans have been reacting on Twitter after it was reported that Celtic had made a £1.75million bid for Hibernian midfielder John McGinn.

According to Sky Sports, Hibs have now rejected two seven-figure bids for the 23-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract at Easter Road, as they are yet to meet their valuation.

It is understood that Scottish Premiership champions Celtic bid £1.5million for McGinn last week, but only improved it by £250,000 in their latest attempt to pry the Scotland international away from Neil Lennon.

Some Rangers fans have reacting to their bitter rivals’ latest transfer activity, and many are wondering why they are not being criticised for offering below the valuation of their targets.

One claimed that it’s “morally shameful” by Celtic.

OPINION

You can see why Rangers fans are saying this. They were slammed by pundits and the media when they bid below Jordan Jones’ value when they tried to sign him from Kilmarnock in January. People need to realise that this is just how negotiations work. It would be reckless to just instantly bid what the selling club value their player at. Hibs are probably wanting almost £5million for McGinn, who is easily their best player. Celtic will not pay that and the only way they can get them to budget is by tempting them to cave into accepting a lower amount.
