'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No move to Scottish giants says McFadden

Birmingham striker James McFadden has stated that he will not be moving to either Rangers or Celtic.

In recent times, McFadden has been linked with a move to one or the other of the Scottish giants after Blues were relegated to the Championship.

McFadden spoke at the Scotland headquarters, just before the friendly international with Northern Ireland.

'I wasn't at Ibrox or Parkhead last week so that's how far those rumours went,' he said:

'It's hard to tell (if he will be at Birmingham when the transfer window closes) but at the minute I'm there unless I'm told otherwise.

'To be perfectly honest I wouldn't entertain a move to Glasgow.

'I'm happy to be playing outside Scotland at the minute, especially with the kind of press that's been going about for Rangers and Celtic. I'm quite happy to be away from it.

'I read the papers and I watch the television and there has been some bad press for Rangers recently.

'I'm afraid that's what you get at the two biggest teams, there is always stories to be written, whether they are good or bad.'

We knew this, the boss said that he wasn't going anywhere, but he doesn't say he's stopping at st andrews

Who the hell wants to play scottish football? You'd be better off playing tiddlywinks.

JAMES McFadden and Sebastian Larsson, two of the remaining ‘crown jewels’, should be at St Andrew’s for the duration, Alex McLeish has again stressed. Both showed their value to Blues in the second-half of the win over Southampton, and have knuckled down to life in the Championship. “I never thought McFadden would go,” said the manager. “I really thought it would take something daft from another club to even tempt us. “We have had nothing and we don’t expect it. “McFadden and the rest of the players knew we would be in the Championship. Some of the players who came down were finding it difficult and there was speculation about three or four of them. They found it difficult to get their heads around that. “But they are settling down and I can see a massive difference in Seb Larsson in the last seven days. “I think they are good professionals and of course we have spoken. I think that they have realised they have to perform out there because even if they still wanted to leave they would have to show what they are capable of. “I think there is a realisation of that, but also the realisation that these are their team-mates they are playing alongside.”

Don't you have to be asked to join something before you can snub it

Apparently, the Baggies have already agreed a deal to sign McFadden before the window closes. As a Baggies fan I am not overly keen on him and I couldn't really see us spending that kind of money but following the signing of Valero who knows?
