    Arguably the worst pure footballer I’ve seen in a Celtic strip. So, so, poor at the basics.

    Don’t get me wrong, he’s a beast and he’s rapid and that does count for more in modern football but until he develops a first touch and even a smidgeon of composure his transfer fees look laughable at this point.

    Said when he signed he was a haddy.

    He’s genuinely awful. If you took away his pace he wouldn’t even be junior level.

    Honestly, he's like a Sunday league player with the ball at his feet. Thank * for him he's big and rapid. Otherwise he could forget football.

    His agent has probably died of laughter at this point. 28 million in fees for that hahaha.

    He's a stick on to break some * legs with his second touch aswell. Big powerful clumsy *. Fair play to him becoming a millionaire with such little talent.

    When you see players like him make it it genuinely makes me wish I had stuck in at fitba when I was younger.

    100m sprinter never a footballer

    how the * he missed that chance at the very end i'll never know.
    if we were gonna spend 8 or 9 million on a player thenw e need to know we can count on them to score chances like that in teh dying seconds.

    he's not worth the investment, today's miss proves that, dont waste the money celtic.

    Bags of pace and energy , causes havoc at times but lacks composure. He's got something but don't think we should try and sign him.

    I think we can see why he doesn’t get a game for West Brom.

    Dunno how he's managed to end up with the value he has currently, striker or not that miss was horrendous.

    One extreme to the other on this forum. A few week ago he was the player everyone wanted to keep the most and people saying we should spend 10 million.
    Now he's a diddy that can't play football and should stick to athletics :giggle1:

    Isn't even the worst idea if he turned in to a wing back..

    Quick, strong and decent in the air..

    It worked for Agathe, who wasn't technically special. Although he was special compared to Burke. Even my touch is..

    Seems to have lost confidence under Lenny, not sure what Rodgers did but he definitely got more out of him.

    Play him right back and see how he does. Never a striker, he’s a winger who needs a lot of work or just play him right back.
