    Not keen on the guy at all but he at least put in a bit of effort tonight which is more than he did the past couple of seasons.

    Good player, probably the second-most scapegoated of the Ronny era

    Put in a very good shift tonight, which is not often the case for him, unfortunately didn't do much with the ball.

    He's pish and a coward. Make way for a decent signing.

    To be fair to him he seems to be putting in a lot more effort under Rogers.

    Once the team start playing better as a whole he might be of some use.

    Neverending disappointment with final ball/shooting. due an injury any time now as he has played a few games.

    Folk cant say anything positive about him without complimenting it with a negative, tell's its own story.

    James Forres, lost my support when he refused to sign. In all honesty, he had a decent first season, but he has never repeated that form. I would never let him wear a Celtic jersey again

    Hopefully we sell him. I'm not a fan at all.

    I've found it easy to be frustrated with him in the last couple of seasons I think it's because at one point he showed so much promise. His issues have been clear to see: no final ball, injury prone, poor concentration and defensively not interested.

    I thought he was great tonight tho. His position was better and he seems more comfortable playing right up the park. Defensively it may have been his best performance, the whole forward line was tight and quick pressing especially I the first half. Pressuring defenders and breaking down their shape. He showed more focus, concentration and heart than most of his other games and his pace is always an issue for the opposition, on the break and defensively; at least tonight.

    He still lacked a final ball and it's harsh that he has played opposite paddy Roberts who is a much more effective but I think he could be a player for us. He had a few moments tonight where he caused problems. If he can keep focused and maybe do it more often he could be useful.

    Tbf I feel like Ive thought this before about Jimmy, however the chance is there for him if he wants to take and maybe Brendans the man to make something of him.

    Punt punt punt. He's had his chances. Too many false dawns where he'll do well for a wee spell (even for Scotland against good sides like Poland) then turn to * again for ages.
    Frustrating as *. He needs a change for his own benefit and we do for our benefit, it suits both parties. Same applies to Stefan as well, imo.

    I actually think that Shoodurs is one of things good things Ronny can take all credit for, along with getting the best out of Griff as well.
    To be fair, he got him fit and gave him chances to shine and he did. That's why he's still here, imo, because Ronnie helped him back, get him over his chronic fitness issues and turn him into, on his day, the good player we all know he can be.
    But there's only so much one person can do. Shoodurs attitude obviously still needs work and ultimately only he can really change that. Again I think it'd be best for everyone if he was moved on.

    Credit where it's due, he put in a shift tonight. Didn't create much, but did at least as much as Armstrong/McGregor

    Wasn't the worst tonight.

    Not a fan though and nothing will really change my mind, unfortunately.

    Thought he showed flashes of what he is capable of and did some reasonable tracking back. Showed more desire than normal but I wouldn't have him in my starting 11

    Put in a good shift with his high pressing but overall he was very unimpressive. Never really did anything to trouble the Astana right back (and later left back). Has poor passing and vision. No need to mention his crossing which has never been good.
    Still hope we sign a couple of wingers before the end of the window. Don't even want to have him as our backup. Think he should move on.
