    Could play a part late on tomorrow, the pitch is so wide at Hampden, there's space for him to recover his first touch.

    Can talk about his touch and finishing but that game was crying out for him..

    He stretches defences. Runs constantly and presses player's in to mistakes..

    They were far too comfortable playing out the back in to midfield under zero pressure..

    Thought it was bizzare he got no game time..

    He wasn't played because we were a goal up with 20 mins to go. Not started as he has no chance of being here next season.

    He's got to be a better option than Sinclair. Why he is getting a game for 90 minutes is utterly beyond me.

    He wasn't played because we were 1 up with 20 minute's to go. What does that even mean?

    We needed someone on as an outlet who presses like * and terrifies defender's when he's near..

    But he's only on loan so * them all out the door..

    Said that to the guy next to me, should’ve been on after we took the lead as killie had to come out and try get something leaving him plenty room to run into.

    It was the most logical move of the day mate..

    Still though, at least Sinclair got a full game......

    He really should have been brought on. I can understand if Lenny doesn't want to play him because hes only on loan and no chance of signing him permanently.

    Lennon would be better served picking the best options available to him just now seeing as the job isn't already his.

    Burke getting no game time and Weah not even being in the squad is just daft.

    He's got a first touch like a brick wall?

    Think all the loan players are being left out as they won’t be here! How many loan players did Lenny have in his time, not many? Brozek is only one I can remember!

    I think we’ve been getting a lot of good value from the loan market recently though so wouldn’t want to stop getting the likes of Roberts, Denayer, Guidetti, Edouard etc.

    You would think a manager would play the players that will give the best chance of gettin a result, regardless of whether they are loan players or not ?

    Totally pointless that if izaguirre and lustig won’t be here and they’re getting game time
