Celtic turn to Blackburn striker McCarthy

Celtic are chasing Blackburn Rovers' want-away striker Benni McCarthy.

The Daily Mail says McCarthy as made it clear that he wants to leave Ewood Park but Blackburn want around £2.5million for him.

That price could still prove an obstacle for cash-strapped Celtic who are hoping to raise funds by selling Scott McDonald, Barry Robson and Gary Caldwell to Middlesbrough.
