Doyle was keen on Celtic switch

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Kevin Doyle has said he was tempted by the chance to play for Celtic in the Champions League.

Kevin Doyle wants Wolves to remain in the play-off positions all season
Doyle was linked with a move to the SPL in January

Doyle, 29, was linked with a deadline day move to SPL side Celtic amid suggestions could he be targeted as a replacement for Norwich City target Gary Hooper.

However, the Republic of Ireland international remained at Wolves, as did Hooper at Parkhead, although Doyle concedes he was open to the idea of a switch north of the border.

Asked if he was tempted by the opportunity to move north of the border, Doyle said: "Obviously.

"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.

"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."

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
