    So we are being linked with a player from Desmonds other team, but Ange has full control of player signings they said. Another day passes with no signings then this rumour of Scales. Out of CL, lost the first game of the season and yet still movement on the player front. I dont know anything about Scales, but we need players in that have more experience. This signing if indeed is true is again interference from the board.

    * off if we're paying 600k for him.

    Make some proper * signings that will come in and make a difference.

    Aye, there have been some good players come out of the league of Ireland but not * many especially straight from there to a big club (if we can still call ourselves that at this rate) there's plenty more cillian Sheridan's and Michael duffy's than there are Coleman's

    We have no head of recruitment. We have a manager who only knows Japanese players and he signed the best. Litterly every other singing will be to do with the board and agents offering players.

    We've gone from having defenders that would put the fear of * into opposition players e.g Balde, Rieper, Mjalby and the likes to signing Ron Weasley's stunt double. We have no height at the back which is terrifying given how many goals we lost from set plays last season.

    That’s a load of *, he seems to know a lot about European football and players. Some of the claims flying about the now is borderline insanity ffs.

    Also is this how desperate us fans have got, wetting our breeks over a 23 year old no one has heard of (minus the Irish contingent understandably) even they’re surprised that he’s been touted. You wonder why our squad is so bad when we’re allowing * like this to float through the door. I kind the last two players to come from LOI, McCourt couldn’t give up the booze and *, and the young winger that come, got punted out on loan then disappeared can’t even mind his name.

    Standards have dropped, dropped so far most of the fanbase allows it to go unchallenged then wonders what’s gone wrong.

    600k is * all. All the more reason to just get this done and not think twice about it.

    He could develop into a really top young player. He was on trial in England in the summer of 2019; Man City and Bristol Rovers.

    He could also fail to make the cut and head back across the Irish Sea in two years time.

    Roll that dice for the sake of 600k and move on to recruiting another full back

    There’s a real possibility he’ll play out the remainder of Rovers season IMO. And join Celtic in a few months time.

    We still need to sign a first choice left back immediately

    I really don't see the board allowing Ange 4 left back on the books. Even if Boli goes I don't see Scales and another coming in.

    Taylor is first choice with Boli back up at the moment. If scales comes in (23 years of age). He's coming in to compete with Taylor for left back. We ain't gonna sign another left back, with Scales 3rd choice behind Taylor.

    Especially when we only have 1 right back...

    I'm not exactly buzzing at signing this guy but that's a weird complaint to make on the thread of a 6 foot 4 left back.

    Hope he's backup and we sign a first teamer as well

    Boli has played about 45 mins in pre season and hasn't made the bench since. He'll be gone by the time the window closes

    Is he really that tall? It says so on Transfermarkt, but on the video, he looks shorter.

    If the board are dragging their heals to replace Ralston, I don't see them bringing in someone to replace Taylor, and provide Ange with a 3rd choice back up in Scales. Scales is there to compete with Taylor.

    Got no issue with this. But for the love of * Celtic, sign another 4 or 5 players this week on top of this.

    Ah. Transfermarkt had Welsh as being way taller than he really is, too. At first I thought Scales was primarily a CB.
