Hamilton reject Celtic's bid for star McCarthy

Hamilton boss Billy Reid has confirmed Celtic have made a bid for star midfielder James McCarthy.

Reid refused to divulge the amount of the offer but revealed it was set to be rejected by the Lanarkshire club.

He said: "The club have received an offer for James. I can say at this stage that it will be rejected."

''We're keeping James informed at all times of the situation. At this stage, he's just focusing on the final two games of the season.''

Should Hamilton reject Celtic's initial bid, it remains to be see whether the Scottish champions will return with an improved offer.

''James has had this for two years and he'll not let it affect him,'' Reid added. ''We'll sit down at the end of the season and talk about James' future.''

McCarthy, 18, is arguably the hottest property in Scottish football and Accies have already knocked back a bid from Portsmouth, reportedly in the region of £500,000.

That is expected to be the first of a number of offers for the midfielder this summer and the player's representative, Willie McKay, claims his client is keen on a move to Parkhead.

''James knows there is interest from England, but he's made it clear he would love to play for Celtic,'' McKay told the Daily Record.

''I'm sure they would be prepared to pay what would be a lot of money for a teenager.''
