Doyle: I’ll make Poles pay for my Celtic hell

REP OF IRE­LAND v POLAND 7.45pm – Sky Sports 2

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

KEVIN DOYLE has warned he will take his fury out on Poland af­ter miss­ing out on a dream move to Celtic.

The Wolves hit­man was set to make a switch to the Scot­tish cham­pi­ons be­fore the trans­fer dead­line af­ter be­ing told his club wanted him off the wage bill.

That would have meant a mouth-wa­ter­ing Cham­pi­ons League dust-up with Ju­ven­tus next week.

In­stead, the 29-year-old is left with hum­drum Cham­pi­onship ac­tion.

But Doyle has told the Poles that has got him fired up for their clash at the Aviva Sta­dium.

He said: “I thought the move was go­ing ahead the day be­fore the win­dow closed.

“I knew they wanted a deal but there was a cross­ing of wires some­where.


“It would have been a bril­liant op­por­tu­nity for four or five months, to go on loan to a team who are in the knock­out stages of the Cham­pi­ons League and on top of their domestic league.

“I have to say that play­ing against Juve in the Cham­pi­ons League was one of the at­trac­tions of go­ing there.”

Repub­lic of Ire­land boss Gio­vanni Tra­p­at­toni has been la­belled “a clown” by Ian Harte af­ter snub­bing the Read­ing left-back once again.

Conor Sam­mon and Jeff Hen­drick have been drafted in and Doyle is ex­cited by the prospect of the Derby duo mak­ing an in­ter­na­tional break­through.

He added: “It’s al­ways nice to get away with the in­ter­na­tional team, whether your club side are do­ing well or not.

“It’s al­ways nice to have new faces to freshen things up, whether at club level or in­ter­na­tional level.”

Paul Green has been called up to re­place the in­jured David Meyler while the Ire­land camp are con­fi­dent Dar­ron Gib­son will re­turn to the in­ter­na­tional fold for the next set of qual­if­ers.
