Rumors are still rife about "Zinadine" Kilbane moving away from the KC Stadium. The veteran Irishman is only a bit part player under Phil Brown, at Hull City and may be up for a move away from East Yorkshire, to get first team football.

Last week it was a move across Yorkshire to Hull City's traditional rivals, Sheffield United. The week before it was to play for his old Republic of Ireland manager, Mick McCarthy, at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Latest speculation is as an experienced hand, to bolster up a flagging Celtic team who are 10 points adrift of hated rivals Glasgow Rangers.

Celtic boss, Tony Mowbray has never hidden his liking of Kilbane, and feels that the Irishman with over a hundred international caps under his belt would be just what his club needs in the second half of the season to close the game on Rangers.

It is thought that it would require approximately £400,000 to persuade the Tigers to let the versatile Kilbane leave. However, it is also rumoured that his old Ireland team mate, Roy Keane, is interested in bringing him to Ipswich Town to introduce some much needed experience to his struggling side.
