And today, Sky Sports reported: "Gary Caldwell has snubbed a move to link up with Gordon Strachan at Middlesbrough".
He underwent a medical on Monday and had agreed a three-and-half-year deal.
However, the Scottish international defender has made a dramatic U-turn and agreed a move to Wigan instead.
Caldwell was today in talks with Roberto Martinez.
Although he is/was Celtic captain, he is about as popular with the Hoops fans as a picture of King Billy.
