    I find it incredible this guy is actually being paid by a club like Celtic and is on a four year deal.

    I feel like we've signed a fan of Celtic who was plucked out of the half time draw and offered a big cheque with a four year deal.

    What is he actually offering us? I'm starting to dislike the guy. What a * waste of money.

    Would rather we cut our losses with this guy and just ended the deal. To think folk were more worried about Joe Hart barely playing.

    4 years.


    At least he gave us that mad Irish accent when he was unveiled. Decent patter.

    Honestly get rid in January if we can.

    He’s honestly at a level where he should be retiring at Hamilton. His body must be *.

    Even the way he moves looks weird. As if he isn't in control of his body.

    On paper it looked a great signing.

    He's just bang average. Hasn't contributed to a single thing this season.

    Another wage stealer

    It’s unfair that he’s thrown in but the lack of options mean he has to be.

    He still isn’t ready to be relied on but I for one won’t be writing him off until he’s got himself right and he’s played a run of games.

    Also doesn’t help that he was majorly overrated because he was seen as a wonder kid coming through up here.

    There’s a reason he was a bang average player down south.

    Didn't know that, I just don't see were Mc Carthy fits into this team, soro looks a natural in that position, still a bit rash in his tackles but I'd take that and he will learn

    Had hope for him but you can just tell he's never gonna be an option..

    Can't of been an Ange signing..

    He's still miles and miles away from being semi competent for half hour even for us..

    The 4 year deal tells you it wasn’t an Ange signing…


    Dermot all over it.

    Correct.

    Surely you have to pass a medical before signing? If he wasn't match fit then the contract should have stipulated a time frame to get fit or void the deal.

    Absolute garbage, if he can't be arsed getting fit to play for Celtic then he should just quit the game.

    4 fookin years! 4 months and I already want him sold. Makes Ajeti look like a good signing. And Barkas..

    We have some real * players on big money and long terms

    It’s not happening is it? He’s looked so far off the pace every time he plays. You win some , you lose some. Hart has been a * send for us whilst it hasn’t worked out for McCarthy. Both , you could say, came on board on similar circumstances. I know which one I’m
    Happy about that worked out.

    I don’t think it’s a lack of willingness to get fit - it’s just that he’s knackered.

    Also, I don’t think he was all that good regardless.

    He's *. Another one who has been playing regularly since 16/17 and is now completely cooked.

    Whoever thought a 4 year deal was a good idea needs their head examined.

    £3 million he’ll earn in his time here, that’s if he doesn’t bite the bullet and retire beforehand, well done moustache man

    Even at his peak he was meh for me. He was far too overhyped as a youngster up here.


    I genuinely don’t get why some people were expecting him to come up here and rip it up. He wouldn’t have done it at his peak never mind now.
