    I read somewhere (maybe here even) that his agent told him to wait until the summer to approach Celtic regarding wages/contract talks) he sacked that agent and got a new one . The one he has now. Get the feeling him and his new agent have made a * of it. We shall see

    Guy’s last appearance for us he came on worked like * and scored a goal to put the game away. Ange has left him out there, Ange’s decision. He didn’t say GG asked.

    One of the Dom McKay three. The same reason we are getting peanuts for them is the same reason McKay was forced out.

    Not saying it isn’t true but where is it this is coming from? Also who is the third as I saw McCarthy mentioned?

    Greece boss Gus Poyet has revealed Giorgos Giakoumakis wants to quit Celtic because of his lack of game time.

    Hoops striker Giakoumakis is poised to depart Parkhead this month after playing second fiddle to Kyogo for most of the season. Cash-rich Japanese club Urawa Red Diamonds are leading the chase for his signature, while MLS outfit Atlanta United are also keen.

    Football Scotland understands the 2 8-year-old's agent has spent the week in Glasgow as he thrashed out his client's exit.Giakoumakis wasn't involved against St Mirren or Morton this week and may well have played his final game for the club. And Poyet has assured the 11-times capped star he will remain part of his international plans wherever he decides to go


    He said: "I think Giorgos is a strong character, he likes to play football, he gives you 100% all the time, I think that's why he's so popular with Celtic.

    "He's got better in front of goal and scored a few goals. But this season he wasn't playing regularly. He felt he wanted to play.


    At first I heard it was this team in Japan he was going to sign for and now I hear it's the team in MLS. I always tell any player when they ask for my opinion that they have to make good decisions.



    The more good decisions you make in your career, the better your career gets. But wherever he is in the world, he will be in the national team if he doesn't have injury problems


    I like him a lot and he is an important member of the Greek national team and I hope he makes the right decision for himself and for the national team."

    If there was a clause in their contracts there wouldn't be add on fees. I think the 2 of them were on buttons compared to some other players

    OK so what is this chatter about Dom McKay?

    He was forced out because board of directors found him to be * at negotiating contracts and having poor foresight over finances?

    Going to Japan or MLS for football reasons is not a good decision. Living in Japan for lifestyle reasons I can understand. Such a wonderful country. USA? Depends where you are, but opportunity wise for his family it is light years ahead of here.

    I just don’t understand the need to go now? I get the grumble about playing time and he’s probably ran out of pins to put into his Kyogo voodoo doll, but the timing is just wrong.

    I think him and his new agent have made a * of trying to get more money out of us.

    From Ange’s comments he’s definitely trying to make up his mind where he wants to go, will also depend massively if we get Oh and maybe Cho in.

    He should 100% be aiming higher than Japan and MLS leagues. He’d be well suited to Germany or Italy.

    German perrenial under-achievers like Hertha Berlin and Stuttgart should be salivating with the prospect of signing Giakoumakis for a reasonable fee - he would be perfect for them, and they both have a huge support base.

    Juranovic going to Union Berlin FC is a bargain buy for them. They sit third on the current ladder.
