Owls Linked With Riordan

Owls Linked With Riordan

Celtic striker Derek Riordan has been linked with a move to Hillsborough as Owls boss Brian Laws looks to fill his vacant number nine shirt ahead of the new season.

Laws has tried and failed with a number of options to bolster his attack ahead of the new season with bids for Billy Sharp, Kenwyne Jones, Grzegorz Rasiak and even an offer to take former Ajax and Dutch international Patrick Kluivert on trial.

And the Owls supremo could now focus his attentions on bringing the former Hibernian striker to Hillsborough this week after falling out of favour with Celtic boss Gordan Strachan since his move to Glasgow.

Laws is thought to have around £2 million to play with to bring a new striker to Hillsborough, and with Riordan making just six starts in the SPL for Strachan's men, Celtic could well be set to listen to offers for their hitman.

And despite only featuring a handful of times for the champions since his move in 2006, Riordan's goalscoring record is still impressive with seven goals in ten competitive starts.

If he'd played 10 games and scored 7 goals then no manager would let such a striker go. I'm assuming he's only been allowed to play against poor quality opposition.
