Rodgers: Time will tell if Celtic go back in for McGinn
Brendan Rodgers said Hibs are entitled to demand more for the Scotland star.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said "time will tell" when asked if the Hoops will return to the table with another bid for Hibs midfielder John McGinn.
The Parkhead side have had two offers turned down by their Easter Road counterparts for Scotland international McGinn.
Rodgers said Celtic are looking to add to their squad this summer as they look to make it eight league titles in a row.
However, the Northern Irishman insisted Hibs have every right to set their valuation for McGinn and stick by it.
He said: "It's something for the clubs to organise, I coach the team, manage the team.
"We target players but ultimately any agreements have to be between the two clubs.
"We respect that John is very much a Hibs player and unless there is an agreement it's going to be a difficult one.
"So that's really between the clubs."
He added: "John is a very talented player, but he's a Hibs player and Hibs have every right to decide what their valuation is, like we did with Stuart Armstrong.
"But, like I say, I tend not to be involved in the negotiations, my job is to manage, coach the team and hopefully improve the players."
Asked if Celtic would bid again for McGinn, Rodgers said: "Again, I'm distant from that, so time will tell."
Odsonne Edouard has arrived for a club-record £9m fee, while Armstrong headed to Southampton as his Parkhead deal entered its final year.
Rodgers said Celtic were clear on their plans to develop the squad ahead of the coming season.
He continued: "We've been looking firstly at keeping the players we have here, guys that we wanted to keep, which was important for us.
"But then, like I say, we need to replace ones that have left as well as strengthen.
"It's fairly simple, we've a really good core group of players here but if you are going to develop and improve then you need to add to that.
"It's fairly straightforward really but, of course, negotiations never are, so that's between the clubs to organise."
