    Was a kid at the time so don’t remember the controversy well. Celtic Wiki claims that not giving 100% thing actually came from O’Leary, the Leeds manager, at the time.

    Young myself but I wouldn't say he never tried..

    He * us about coming though and was never staying long..

    He was a class player. Didn't see much difference in him at Leeds to us. Wasn't the quickest and his style maybe gave off that impression..

    The emergency loan is over, now that Dundee's goalkeeper is fit again.

    We didnt sell him to Chelsea because the * rat was uncapable of scouting players. So much that when we ended up with Bain, our plan A was Motherwell's goalkeeper. If we had a proper scouting team and a few possible goalkeepers on our radae we could certainly have sold him.

    This is far from a "told you so" but the * has been like that from day dot with us. He completely lacks any sort of command of his area - not even his 6 yard box let alone the 18 yard box. He never comes for crosses (okay never is a far fetched one before someone finds a clip), clubs have known for years, if you cross a ball and aim to have it land on the 6yard line, our defence doesn't know what to do as the keeper won't come for it, at all.

    He's a donkey of a keeper. Dinned off his good saves as a young keeper for far too long.

    Im just talking about the perception mate.

    It was actually wide spread at leeds and indeed middlesborough, that he wouldnt shut up singing Celtic songs.

    Perception is everything. Thats why Ronaldinho is a legend... and Neymar is a *.

    Also * Craig Gordon. Cant wait for him to join some mickey mouse team so we can pump him like a free period on a friday

    He was a decent player for us. Last couple of seasons have seen him get pretty dodgy, it happens. Don't get the get tae * stuff, yeah he's done but in the main he did well for us

    For me, his flaws have always been there, always.
    I genuinely believe there was a romantic idea with him coming back from that injury and being a half decent keeper. It quickly turned out that he really wasn't that great and his flaws are far too many over his good traits.

    Add to that his general demeanour and attitude around the place. His refusal to accept any responsibility at all for his mistakes, throwing his team mates under the bus, the interviews with hearts etc.

    He's been a * if a guy while here. Genuinely wouldn't be surprised one iota if it turns out the leaks stop after he walks out the door for the last time.

    He played tippy tappy with a wee fella outside cp and * went all floppy for him.

    Hes had ONE decent season. Thats it.

    Hes been exposed and cost us so many games in europe (re: previous post on his euro stats as one of the worst in EUROPE) and he's been acting the * for 3 seasons now.

    He thinks hes * Scotlands Buffon. Hes a * bufoon.

    Alan "i get beat up by my * and blame it on Celtic fans" McGregor is a better keeper... by a mile. And The WALL is 10 times a better keeper.

    * like to think we took him on and he performed miracles. He did * all. We took a chance on a diet hun * who got knocked back by sevco because they couldn't afford his wages.

    Fair enough. Football is football.

    But his latest comments are just another in a long line of petulant * from a sub par keeper with no love for this club.

    Bye bye *. Mibbe crow can keep us updated when he goes back to one of the hun rocks he slithered out from.

    I agree with that. He came originally on a free when Forster was sold to Southampton and did well for us. He clearly is on the downward end of his career but as you say that is what happens to every player. I have zero problem with Craig Gordon he was a decent keeper for us but now it is time for him to move on and wind down his career elsewhere. Assuming Bain is back 100% I would be ok with him being allowed to leave and or sold in January. If not then I would imagine he will go in the summer.

    He just could never figure out when to pass the ball and when to put his laces through it.
