Celtic fans have been flocking to the Twitter post of transfer target Ivan Toney over the last 24 hours after sensing an increased chance of landing the red hot striker.

Brentford, the other team reported to be interested in the Peterborough United forward, missed out on promotion to the Premier League last night.

They lost to Fulham in the Championship Play-Off Final and it may have massively harmed their chances of landing Toney too.

The Glasgow Times have reported that Toney favours a move to Celtic over the Bees if they are going to be playing in the second-tier next term, potentially opening the door for the Bhoys to return with an improved transfer offer.

The Scottish champions are said to have already lodged a bid but it was short of Posh’s valuation in excess of ยฃ6m.

With former coach Gavin Strachan having a previous relationship with Toney, are we now in pole position to land the goal-getter?

He was an exciting force in League One and the FA Cup last term, netting 26 goals in 36 appearances across both competitions.

Fans are certainly interested in signing him if the price is right.

Will he have his head turned by the added enthusiasm? At the very least, supporters have been enjoying themselves…
