    This boy is going nowhere with us. He's has 2 * loans so far, unless he suddenly becomes amazing he will be away next season

    He actually done well at Dundee last season by all accounts but then they spent a bit of cash in January and he got pushed down the pecking order. Not near good enough for us though.

    I kept a bit of an eye on him there last year, but he scored 4 in 22 with no assists, that's poor in that team at that level.

    I'd have liked us to have recalled him after the dubai fiasco given we had no strikers at that point but we didn't

    Agreed. Probably best for him to move on permanently at this point. I just do not see him making the breakthrough with us. He will turn 22 in January so really if he was going to make it at Celtic he would at least be knocking on the door by now. Would have loved to have seen him do well with us but it just is not going to happen.

    He only played 2 full games though, 680mins total. That’s not a lot at all, he nearly played the same amount of mins for his 6 games at Dunfermline. I think a loan down South would be better for him, a lot more games to play.

    Doubt he’ll make it here but he has got decent potential still.

    His loan at Dunfermline was decent

    It was looking like it could have been OK before the season was cut short, but he scored 2 in 6, Nisbet was also in that team and was far better.

    That says a lot as well though, why was he only getting that little game time? The other strikers were hardly setting things ablaze, then Cummings put him even further down and we know what Cummings is like.

    I'd love for him to be a success, he's our player afterall but I don't see it. We should have recalled him during the dubai fuckup, he'd have got a couple of games and then could have been an option in the squad and he might have had a chance then, but now I don't see it at all

    Don’t think he is going to make it, fingers crossed we get some money back for him.

    Last chance for him really, will be 22 by the time he comes back so hopefully he does well.

    Any reports on how he did? Thought it was reported he was going straight into the side.

    That's the face of a man who's questioning his current life circumstances.
