Boro close on fourth Celtic signing

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough manager Gordon Strachan is hoping to complete a swoop for a fourth Celtic player as Stephen McManus closed in on a move to Teesside.

The 27-year-old defender is keen to join Barry Robson, Willo Flood and Chris Killen at the Riverside Stadium following their arrivals earlier this month.

Strachan told the Evening Gazette: "It's well documented that I'm a big fan of Stephen's. I have asked him if he wants to come here and he's desperate to come. Now we have to try to do a deal with Celtic."
