    You sure mate? I was sure when Gordon got that new bumper long term contract under Rodgers (around the Chelsea interest) there was talk of him then becoming one of our top paid players around the likes of Sinclair and brown

    Has some ability and barring more injury problems he’ll carve out a decent career for himself. Shame it didn’t work out here.

    Ah good, always thought it was madness we’d got a 34 year old tied up on a longer term at that kinda wage! Haha how many of our players are actually over the 20k mark at the moment, you know?

    Ah well shame really.

    22 decent enough age to salvage a career and his gone to a decent team in a respectable league.

    I think he'll go on to be a good player if he can stay injury free. I think we would've considered giving him a chance this season if we hadn't already signed Soro.

    Had some dodgy moments but I thought he had something about him.

    He played at home against Hearts and then Zenit at home (consecutive games I’m sure) and he was really good. Tenacious off the ball and always trying to make space to receive it. Was at the preseason game vs Sunderland away where he played and, again, I thought he looked like a good player.

    Hope he kicks on at Gent for the sake of his own career but may also go to show that we need to give young players more of a chance when they are fit.

    FORMER Celtic midfielder Eboue Kouassi has been struck down by malaria for the second time in three years.

    The Ivory Coast star moved to Genk last month in a £1.3million deal after a disappointing spell at Celtic - where he made just seven league starts since a £2.8m move from Krasnodar three years ago.


    But he's suffered a setback in his new career in Belgium after being hospitalised with another bout of malaria.

    Kouassi contracted the virus just weeks after his arrival at Celtic and was sent to hospital for treatment before being discharged.


    Last week, he complained of feeling unwell at training and tests showed he had picked up the tropical disease.

    He's been in hospital in Genk for several days, but is expected to be discharged before the weekend and he should be given the all-clear to resume training soon.


    Kouassi spoke about recovering from malaria when he was at Celtic.

    He said: "I wasn't afraid, I just felt quite tired. It was okay.


    It’s knocked me back a little and delayed my chances of making an impact at the start, but I am just delighted to be fit again.
