    Would you begrudge him leaving if he was going to somewhere like Barcelona?

    If you were really given the oppetunity though you'd probably go, likely more money maybe 3/4 times what Celtic would give you.

    Also it's a long road to a team like Bayern if you start off playing at Celtic, where as if you give it a go at Bayern and you turn out not good enough you can always end up back at Celtic when you are 19/20/21 and still have a decent career. Also just living and training in Germany would be appealing, their youth systems are great maybe the best in the world.

    Him and Brody Patterson have just started following each other on Instagram.

    Could be something in it or else the KDS has seen that and jumped to something :56:

    Looks class though so hopefully it’s true.

    If the recent news about Morrison being offered a professional contract with us then @St.Matt definitely has a point now. That's huge commitment and belief from us and our Development is good, maybe not Bayern good but for a mad Tim then it must be very appealing.

    I think what could be a problem for Bayern compared to us is he's going to be amongst a multitude of top young talent from all over Europe whereas here there will be a lot more focus on him. Dunno if that's true, just imagine it could be.

    Anyone any idea what kind of money Bayern gives young players? Surely they don't give them all loads, it's not really the German ethic is it, more an EPL kinda thing.
