REVEALED: Liverpool go cold doing business with Rodgers' Celtic

Liverpool chiefs have gone cold on doing transfer business with Brendan Rodgers' Celtic, it has been revealed.

The Liverpool Echo says Celtic tried to secure the services of Harry Wilson before he went to Derby County but Liverpool were concerned about the Scottish champions' use of loan signings from Premier League clubs last season.

Rodgers snapped up Patrick Roberts from Manchester City and Charly Musonda from Chelsea but both found their opportunities limited. Musonda was recalled just six months into his 18-month loan due to a lack of playing time.

Ryan Kent (Rangers), Ben Woodburn (Sheffield United), Ovie Ejaria (Rangers) have also been loaned out to boost their development and clubs face financial penalties if they aren't given sufficient game time.

That was the fate that Championship outfit Bristol City faced last season after Liverpool were unhappy with how Kent was handled.
