    He's a very good player but seems injured on a regular basis

    ... Is he currently fitter than Jozo and Ajer?

    True but this is exactly the scenario people have been banging on about when we mentioned about enquiring about Benko.

    You think Benkovic would only feature against the huns all season? Do we know how long Jozo and Ajer will be out for? Is there a chance that Hendry could possibly feature in any match?

    No agree he's a very good player and if fit definitely be a great loan but no use if he misses 40% of games in a season. Think the medical staff would have to advise if he had ongoing issues

    If he's available for 60%, he's still a decent player to have around on loan for the season imo.

    I'd take him back in a heartbeat.

    Benkovic is a * monster. Solid as a rock, big, good with the ball on the feet. If he have the possibility of getting such guy without breaking the club financially, we should. He "knows the club" (I know this expression has been used sarcastically here recently, but you can throw him to play alongside Jozo, Brown, McGregor, under Lennon almost immediately), and it is what the team needs.

    Mad how so many tell us that bitton is the 4th CB, but if we allowed that, look how weak that midfield really is! Bitton is a good utility man for us now, I like him as a player, but I don't think he is good enough or commanding enough to be considered a starter in either central midfield or defense.

    For me, left back, centre back and midifelder are needed before this window closes.




    I would put money on us bringing Taylor in (with the usual pish of how we have signed the best Scottish talent...I know...) And a loan for benkovic.

    At a massive push we may go back in for Turnbull if we know he will be match ready before the end of October.



    From there we will get folk saying how great this window is having signed (potentially) 5 and 2 loans along with 3 development.

    But near everyone of those perm signings aren't good enough to take us up a level. And the loans are just that.

    We are through, we have our group. No more ifs and maybes.

    Need to get them in, there’s no excuse now.

    Neil Lennon. Hopeful for signings from the big man. The mixture of anger and depression this Summer has brung due to the farcical mismanagement of the people in charge can't be accurately put into words.

    Neil Lennon by the sounds of it hasn't a clue what happens on the transfer front and Peter is on total control of what happens..

    It's very strange we haven't got Benkovic back. He's not been making any Leicester squads.

    "We are looking for a left-back," said Lennon. "There are a number of options and Greg would be one of those."

    Lennon also said Celtic are "working on a few deals" before the closure of the transfer window on Monday.

    "We might have something today or tomorrow." he said. "I don't have a definitive on that. These things take time.


    "We will be looking to trim a few as well. There's been a bit of interest for players on loan."
