Martinez Checks Out Celtic Striker Scott McDonald

Martinez Checks Out Celtic Striker Scott McDonald


Wigan Athletic are ready to offer Celtic £3.5 million for Australia international striker Scott McDonald according to the Daily Mirror, despite the player about to have a hernia operation.

McDonald was all set to be a deadline day signing back in August only for the deal to fall through at the last minute but it looks like Latics boss Roberto Martinez is determined to get his man, he was up in Glasgow at the weekend to see the Aussie come on as a sub to put Celtic 1-0 up in the Old Firm game.

Apparently there has been a fall out between McDonald and Celtic manager Tony Mowbray with the striker pushing for more starts as he tries to force his way in to the Australia squad ahead of next summers World Cup finals.

The Latics are desperate for extra firepower with summer signing Jason Scotland still awaiting his first goal as a Wigan player and Martinez knows as we get to the business end of the season goals are what are needed to win points and keep teams in the Premier League.

Connolly In Team Of The Week (17/1/17)

Wigan Athletic are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.

Video Highlights - Burton Albion 0 Wigan Athletic 2

All the action, well not all, but some of the action and the goals from yesterday's away win at Burton, starring Callum Connelly.

Dan's Big Game Report - Burton 0 Latics 2

Alright, so despite the hammyteur Twitter meteorologists' predictions, it never did snow in Burton upon Trent today.

But on Friday morning, the Met Office (presumably a wild new joint venture of the Metro newspaper and the Post Office) issued 'yellow warnings' of ice in Staffordshire. From this we can only assume that the county`s dog walkers embarked upon an unprecedented mass figure skating session producing gold medals you certainly don't want in your hands.

Oh, disregard
