Hull City are to test Celtic boss Tony Mowbray's resolve with a bid for star striker Scott McDonald. The Daily Record says Hull have made behind-the scenes inquiries about the little Australian as they bid to beef up their attacking options for next season's survival struggle.
The ex-Motherwell star has been a revelation at Parkhead in the two years since his bargain basement £650,000 move from Fir Park.
McDonald, who has already booked a place at next summer's World Cup finals in South Africa, could be worth 10 times what Celtic paid for him.
In fact, chief executive Peter Lawwell would be unlikely to do business unless an offer in excess of £6million is tabled by that price won't scare Hull who must spend to try to stay up again.
