    It’s easy to forget how young this lad is. He should be very proud of how he stepped up to the task tonight.

    Looks far more at home centrally, movement looked very good at times and he took his goal like a natural number 9.

    If he was the same quality of player on the ball as he is off it, he’d be a £30m+ player, and who’s to say (at 20) that he won’t get there?

    Gratifying to see him play so well at centre-forward, especially as a few of us have been tipping him for it for a while.

    He burst onto the scene and scored and assisted regularly.

    Since then he’s looked like a lost wee boy that is nowhere close to the required level.

    Scored a few goals but he’s a horrific footballer.

    One of the least technically gifted wingers I’ve seen for us. Powderpuff who looked better than he was when teams still saw us a weak and pressed us.


    He’s shockingly bad.

    He's * terrible man. That was hideous again tonight..

    Static. Can't control the ball. Can't beat a man to save his life. Can't cross or pass..

    Needs a long spell out..

    Murder. I know some keep hitting out with the "aye but he's still young". Pish. If you're good enough you're old enough.

    He's been hopeless for months.

    Only of any use if there's space in behind for him to exploit. Games against a packed defence he is hopeless.

    He got off to a great start at Celtic, but he'd be well down the pecking order for me if everyone is fit. Really poor recently.

    He’s just non-existent in games. Even when he was scoring and assisting he done very little else for 90% of the match in terms of general play.

    He’s one for future. He’s only playing because we have zero depth and at this point it’s so bad he’s the striker.

    Our back up winger (who will likely be 3rd choice soon) is playing as our striker because we are so *. How do you expect to score against teams that sit in with 11 men?

    Got off to a great start here but he’s pish. His stats probably make for not bad reading but he’s not good enough and I doubt he ever will be tbh.

    Hopefully people are beginning to see what I have been seeing for ages now - that he's not very good at all

    He doesnt have the heart. I never fancied him for any 50/50 balls or even some 60/40 in his favour.

    Tonight in hindsight he would have been better on the right. Where he could use his pace because there was room to run in behind on the wings.

    But the sheer lack of an option to play someone through the middle meant he was picked by default.

    Love how some people are still convinced at 20 he’ll suddenly develop the technically ability and skills to become a winger that constantly beats men…

    He can barely control a simple pass.

    Standing still when great crosses were coming in..

    Don't want to see him in the starting lineup for a long time..
