The Celtic connection

Livingston chairman Dominic Keane must pull out all stops to keep midfielder Lee Makel.

Makel has been one of our most consistent players this season, but the Lions are in danger of losing the playmaker if Keane continues to drag his feet.

The contract negotiations should have been ironed out ages ago — not in January, when the player can talk to other clubs.

Celtic lost out big time with Liam Miller, but just because Keane has Celtic connections doesn't mean he has to follow their every move.

Livi did the same with Stevie Tosh. We let him leave, he went to Falkirk, then Aberdeen snapped him up because they realised what a good player he was.

Let's hope Livingston don't make the same mistake with Makel.
