Reds To MUL Over Move For Scottish Pair

Last updated : 20 April 2010 By Rob Miles (BarnsleyBoy)

Reds boss Mark Robins could be set for a double raid on the Scottish Premier League this summer with Aberdeen’s Charlie Mulgrew and Motherwell’s Jim O’Brien his targets. The pair, both out of contract this summer have played 72 games between them this campaign and both have appeared in the Europa League for their respective e clubs.

Left back/left winger Mulgrew, 24, started his career at Celtic but has enjoyed spells in England with Southend and Wolves. He joined the Dons in 2008 and has netted 10 goals in 80 appearances, including five in 39 this campaign. Right winger O’Brien, 22, also started his career with Celtic in 2005 but made just one appearance in three years at Celtic Park which was punctuated with loan spells at Dunfermline and Dundee United. He joined Motherwell in 2008 and has netted four times in 72 appearances.

The Reds will face competition for Mulgrew however with Newcastle, Cardiff and Huddersfield believed to be keen. Huddersfield actually offered him a pre-contract back in January but it was rebuffed.
