Olly explores his Scottish side

Bids for Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam have once again hot his manager Ian Holloway hot under the collar. A cheeky inquiry from Aston Villa had Holloway comparing himself to a dog and threatening to bite people a couple of weeks ago.

Now he has fallen out with Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish over a £4m bid for the Seasiders’ skipper. Holloway reckons £14m would be more like the going rate for Adam – or else he is just as Scottish as Dalglish.

He said: “If you’re gonna offer us something at least make sure it’s realistic. I think that last one from Kenny was probably what Charlie might have been worth 19 years ago whenever Kenny was in charge before.

“If anyone wants to argue with me, have a look at the game: watch that. He wins headers, he sets the tempo of our play, he’s got an unbelievable range of passing. And if that’s only £4m then I’m a Scotsman called McTavish.”

Come on, let’s go retro and take this one to the transfer tribunal!
