    I think £4.5m is far too much money for this guy. He is decent enough and would get a game, but £4.5m no chance is he worth that.

    He's a gd player you can take my word for that, 4.5M though, meh, maybe if it's add ons that's a fair enough fee, I'd probably rate him at 3M

    He's a great prospect and only 21, still to develop. I think he's worth the gamble.

    Was talk of Middlesboro being ready to bid 5.5m.

    I dont wanna spend 4.5m on him as thats a big chunk out our kitty, but I do rate him and think he will develop rapidly.

    hi there..

    Honestly,if we want to progress in the champions league we need to be setting our sights a little higher!! Yes, Scott Brown is a good talent,and would challenge for a place but will he really strengthen the team??i doubt it!! On the sky sports website we have been linked with steven appiah,a great player! Lets set our sights higher, and as many of you rightly say,£4.5 million is far too much,could get us someone like bellamy or anelka!!

    I would generally trust the BBC miles ahead of other sources but that article is full of contradictions. It says he is about to sign for us at the top then at the botton it says 'Brown's agent, Willie McKay, admitted that Middlesbrough are now favourites to sign the player'.

    What the * is that all about?

    true,the BBC is a prett reliable source but as you say there are plenty of contradictions!! Radio clyde'ws webside are saying that he could sign later today for £4.4 million and earn as much as £25,000 per week! i am always positive and upbeat but i feel we are wasting too much of our transfer kitty on this fella!!

    I dunno either, I think he's overhyped by some but fair play to Hibernian to holding out for a good price on him, other SPL clubs need to do the same.

    If he does come here, he'll have that price tag hanging over him. I hope he's money well spent but I'm not fully convinced

    We could be without Lenny (def), JJ (please *) and Grav (straght jacket time) next season leaving only Hartley and Sno as central midfielders so I think there is room for Brown and at least another unless WGS thinks Teddys time has come. Four million is nothing when there is competition for a player who is in contract and English teams take a fancy. Maybe WGS can unearth another Naka/Artur/Naylor type top class bargain but I wouldnt bank on it. I am just guessing but I think WGS is looking for three 4 million pound players and that would be the kitty done.

    The BBC take shortcuts on reports. They update the old one with the breaking news in the first paragh but sometimes forget to check the entire article for consistency.

    They loose their minds trying to get a headline onto the site:84:

    Personally i think that you are too harsh on Thomas Gravesen! The guy played for Real Madrid, captained Everton and Denmark!! Can Paul Hartley and Evander Sno compare to these accolades? Hartley's first good game came on saturday,beforehand he had been very average and GS kept playing him,really to cover his own back! With the likes of jarosik,miller, and gravesen if they haven't performed performed they have been benched,however that same consistency hasn't been shown with Hartley!!
    It's time that the Celtic faithful got behind Gravesen! Its his first season. Whenever he got a good run in the side he did well, hat-trick against st.mirren,goals against rangers and more in the spl!! The guy is quality,i think celtic would be mad to let him move on! we need big personalities to compete in the champions league next year and we need to hang on to the likes of VOH and gravesen!!
