    I'd have given him MOTM today. Was really impressed with him, he didn't get caught out at the back at all and played a few excellent passes over the top of their defence.

    I was impressed with the lad today. He was getting stuck in and his positioning was decent.

    Looks like a potential player for the near future.

    Needs to improve his crossing.

    As people have said, crossing wasn't up to much.

    But in general, was impressed by what I saw. He looked comfortable on the ball and wanted to get on it. Solid when it came to tackling too. Well done :50:

    Looked dodgy the other times I've seen him but would obviously have been nervous and getting to grips with playing in the first team. Looked very assured today, thought he had a good game.

    I thought he played well on his debut at St Johnstone last season and showed some qualities again today.

    Done well and hopefully gets a few more outings this season.

    He was excellent at knicking the ball ahead of the man it was passed too, managed to just knick ahead and get his foot to the ball.

    I would have him ahead of Izzy at the moment. Until Mulgrew is back fit I think Tierney should start. I hope Charlie is back for Wednesday though!

    In my opinion it's a bit soon for that. He did okay today and I'm really pleased for him but his crossing was pretty poor and he's still a very young lad.

    Not to mention how big a game Wednesday is. He handled the occasion well today but Wednesday can define our season.

    Izzy for me has to (and will) start Wednesday unless Mulgrew is deemed fit enough *fingers crossed*

    The fact so many think his crossing is pish goes to show how knee * opinions are!

    Up until today, every single time I've seen him, his cross is his best attribute. By far as well.

    To the point he reminds me of Steve Guppy. Can't do much but cross a peach of a ball with his left peg.

    hes got a good cross on him from wht ive seen of him before he just never really put any decent ones in today but that is like saying Griffiths is injury prone based on this one match.

    Really tidy performance good positioning that made his defensive work look easy.

    Still need a big powerful LB tho, who can defend first.

    You've just described Mulgrew really.

    Charlie provides good cover there no doubt, still would like to strengthen there tho.

    Weird seeing you not as a Gold member threw me a bit.:smiley-laughing002:

    I'm not bothered, we've got Mulgrew, Tierney, Izzy, Janko and Efe who can play there. Should be enough if we can't find someone with enough quality to nail down the position or take it from Izzy (despite shakiness recently from him he's still the best LB I can remember at Celtic)
