    You know with 10 players gone I would still release/punt

    Jack Hendry
    Marvin Compper
    Tony Ralston
    Oliver Ntcham
    Lewis Morgan
    Youssouf Mulumbu
    Kundai Benyu
    Craig Gordon

    Must be another £60k to £80k a week to be saved there

    100% agree bud, out of that list I can't see many arguments from the majority

    Only Gordon and Ntcham contributed to any degree last season. But can't see either playing much of any a role next year.

    It's crazy to believe we are losing 10 players and still we can pull another list of 8 we could be happy to offload.

    Some people might round that up to 10 and add Eboue or Sinclair

    A quality right back and centre half in before July will lift the whole club

    A bit troubling that it's been nearly 3 weeks since the Scottish Cup Final and still no business has been done with players coming in or going out, apart from Boyata leaving for Hertha. Need two centre backs, two right backs, a left back, and then arguably a winger and/or a striker and perhaps another keeper. The clock is ticking..

    I highly doubt we were only contributing 10 grand towards Toljan's loan..

    Weah and Burke were probably on more as well and I think Allan was on 8 that was leaked somewhere I'm sure..

    Either way we've cleared a lot of money off the wage bill with the backroom staff gone as well which you've already mentioned..

    We needed a downsize to an extent but need quality over quantity now. More need to go and the squad needs further trimming with better first team and depth in..

    It's a decent start though in the sense that we've got a fair few unwanteds/past their primes out..

    Whatever we're doing, we better get the finger out and start moving.

    At the moment we're a Jozo or Ajer injury from Hendry starting at centre half, Ralston at right back and a recovering Tierney at left back.

    I'd have that closer to 100k to be honest. Ntcham and Gordon will be 50-60k between them. Compper and Hendry another 20-25k.

    Allan on on 7-8k a week, no * wonder the lad was content enough to sit on the bench or take loan deals instead of pushing for a transfer.

    Guy will be lucky to get that anywhere else in Scotland - the huns aside who are daft *

    This.

    Only 2 weeks till our first pre-season friendly. Would be ideal if we had a few defensive recruits in by then.

    Head of recruitment is a big worry. Not like the board didnt know LC was for the off months ago.


    Then again, we seemingly patched searching for a manager, so go figure
