    2 goals and 1 assist in 5 for his 1st ever 5 Pro matches is fine. He will score more by the end of the season

    They used all 3 subs but he played the full 90 again..

    Forced the corner for their goal and sounds like he ran his * off but Thistle equalised with the last kick of the ball..

    Definitely a productive loan this for him..

    To be honest mate, I think he's already there..

    Very physical player anyway. Strong boy..

    Think he could easily cut it in the top flight next season for a St Johnstone or whoever..

    Good mate, looking at him in the reserves I don’t think h used his physical attributes as much as should could have. Which is good because he is quite classy, 6 months down there he’ll know how to bully * to use his class though.

    I would expect so. With four recognised first team strikers ahead of him and us being linked with a few others, it would be best for him.

    I’m not sure if he’s with the first team squad in France, but by all accounts he did well at Dunfermline last year. Maybe try to get him a loan move to a team challenging for the Championship title or even a bottom half SPFL side for the new season. The most important thing is he’s playing.

    Or at least a top championship club. Dundee would be ideal as it would be good club for them and added bonus of sending the conspiracy theorists into a bit of a hissy fit

    Ideally he would go on loan to another SPFL club for me this season so we can really see where he is at right now in terms of how close to our first team he is.

    Young buck still give him some development in the SPL for a season or two. We dont know what will happen to Griff so itll be nice to have someone in the bag for the worst case.

    At an age now where he should be knocking on the door of first team football with us. If he is not good enough for that he should be at least good enough for another SPFL team. Ajax can do the business on the CL with 2 or 3 under 21 players. We seem to have so many promising youths who just fade away into lower league football as they "progress"

    Dundee are closing in on a deal for Celtic striker Jonathan Afolabi after they completed the signing of Nicholas Hamilton.

    The Dark Blues are looking to take Irish striker Afolabi, 20, on-loan from the Hoops.

    The Republic of Ireland Under-21 cap, who had a spell at Dunfermline last season, is set to boost James McPake’s frontline options.

    Decent move..

    Thought he may have got a top flight bottom end side like St Mirren or St Johnstone though..

    He's 20 now so he really needs to make a big impression at dundee to have any chance with us, unfortunately I can't see it
