    The cost isn't just 600k, it's 600k and the board going, we've signed a defender that's us done be happy with what we got you.

    If its purely for development we've got players there to develop on Welsh, Murray and Hjelde. We need someone to come in and make a big impact, not a hopeful development player, we've already signed one of thosefor that position in Urgohide.

    He went on trial with Bristol rovers and they then didn't sign him so what does that say? Aye, he will have developed and grown since then I'm not disputing that, but is going for a player like this a good use of our efforts, I don't think so, we need so much and all thatvtye club does is * about

    Even the Celtic board can’t dress this up as a player that’s going straight into the first team.

    The three players you’ve mentioned are solely CBs. And Hjelde’s off to Leeds. This guy is far more experienced and is in a much better position to contribute to the first team right now than Uroghide (who again isn’t a LB)

    I’m not sure it requires any ‘use of our efforts’. He’s one of the top players in the LOI. There are the obvious links between the two clubs. The negotiations should be very straight forward. He’s costing * all. Just do it

    Good wee player to be honest, plenty of clubs in England have supposedly been looking at him. 600k is very cheap for a player of his quality.

    Is there anything saying we're actually signing him?

    This boy has played 14 games in his career as a left back, and 14 as a left mid. he is a CB first and foremost.

    We need signings for right now that will improve the team, on a paper level this boy doesn't.

    I'd love to be wrong and we sign him and he is amazing but I'll stay skeptic about that.

    Nothing is straightforward with this club right now.

    To be honest I'd be happy with that because it means there's still a chance we'll sign a first team lb

    Julien - Starfelt - Welsh - Scales at CB, leaves room for improvement but you can only do so much in one window

    I’ve seen plenty of him. Playing primarily LB and LWB under Bradley at Rovers this season. Really effective at getting forward.

    I couldn’t agree more that we need signings for here and now. That’s why for 600k this is a really straightforward deal and not one to lose sleep over or spend weeks mulling over.

    The LB’s and RB’s we’ve been linked to all window are in the 3-5m bracket. It’s not an either or, it’s both.

    If yer man nealon is reporting it and now it's being widely reported over here I'd say it's a done deal. Nealon appears to be very tight with Lee O'Connor I'm not suggesting for a second he is the source but he would be fairly on the mark when comes to Irish players of that age

    Fully agree, at that price get him in and move on. Probably bigger issues at GK, CB, CDM, and striker X2 to address.

    Guessing he would be our back up LB this season, good to get it out the way, but please start signing some first team players Celtic.

    Not sure who should be backup. Scales, if signed, should be tested in Scotland, to see if he's better than Taylor.

    Fair from that if you've seen it and think he's good, I've never seen him in action, I'm just going off stats etc.


    I do love the positivity from you, but I have no faith in our board that it will be both.

    McDonnell would be well connected on all things Irish football and LOI

    Another bench warmer who will eventually go out on loan.

    Following Celtic this season will be bad for my health.

    We don’t need a backup LB. we need a first choice LB.
