Kevin Doyle has confessed that he could have been tempted with the chance to have swapped Molinuex for a shot at glory with Celtic in the SPL.

Transfer deadline day in all fairness was a bit of a dud.

In the build up we had all of Dean Saunders comments about freshening up the squad by moving players on and moving players in, but in the end not a lot happened and that reflected throughout all of England.

Sky Sports News spent the day working themselves up into a frenzy as they always do and they flicked over to the rather lovely Kate Riley because Norwich throughout the day attempted to sign Celtic’s Gary Hooper.

After what appeared to be the ninetieth rejection a twist appeared to happen late in the day that could have suggested that the two clubs were close to agreeing a fee and that was Celtic’s beat-the-deadline bid for Kevin Doyle.

Throughout the summer Doyle always said that he was happy to stay with Wolverhampton Wanderers, but the pull of UEFA Champions League football and an almost guaranteed Championship medal with Celtic would have left him tempted and contemplating his options.

‘They are in a fantastic position, going into the Champions League last 16 and at the top of their league, and it would have been a great opportunity at a massive club for four or five months.’ he told Sky Sports.

He continued: ‘But, in the end, the chairman at Wolves convinced me that they wanted me to stay on, so it was as simple as that.

‘Once the club decided I was staying, that was it, that was the end of it. It’s a very good club, Wolves, a very big club. The aim was to get back promoted.

‘It’s not going to happen this year now, but I still have two and a half years of my contract with Wolves and hopefully in that two and a half years, we can get ourselves promoted and back to the Premier League.’
