Tomlin row

Celtic’s relentless pursuit of Peterborough’s Lee Tomlin caused a row in the Posh dressing room as the player clashed with manager Barry Fry after Saturday’s game with Crawley.

The various offers came in throughout the game, which Fry says left Tomlin’s head all over the place and he had to be taken off. Tomlin wanted to go to Celtic but the offers were all rejected. (Daily Mail)
