    I know he has been quite quiet domestically but I would give him a run at the number 10 with Christie and McGregor deeper.

    Christie can be frustrating to watch at times but we just can’t leave him out with the numbers of goals and assists he gets. Want to see Ajeti and Mo link up and I think playing him as a number 10 will get the best out of him.

    The likes of Ntcham, Turnbull and Soro should still see plenty of game time with the amount of games we have.

    He's a CF number 10, not a Left Winger.

    With Rogic exiled he's our best player to link up the attacking play.

    Can be a bit frustrating with the final pass and sometimes it can break down with him, but his game intelligence, technique and general danger in front of goal proves he should be a starter in our first 11.

    Some of his wee touches are sublime, mind you a couple of times he did excellent and then took an elephant touch and lost the ball which was quite frustrating.

    I'd like him and Rogic rotated in 10 spot.

    Should be starting for us in a more central position I think, played out his skin today.

    Playing him left wing restricted him too much. He needs to be allowed to roam about because be always finds space for himself which is hard to do in a congested part of the field.

    Does his best stuff in front of goal. A man down out wide!

    Rogic, him, N'tcham and Christie competing for that number 10!

    Been wanting him played in the 10, since he arrived.

    ME: On his good form: "The most important thing is we have a good performance. Whoever scores I am happy for them but as long as we win the game, I am happy."

    ME on #CELHIB: "It definitely helps the confidence. I think we're playing well as a team which improves the opportunities that arrive in the final third. We'll hope to build on it tomorrow."



    ME on
    @EuropaLeague
    : "There's no doubt we want to be there. We're going to do everything we can do reach our target. We're feeling sharp after training and we're feeling ready.



    ME on Sarajevo: "We go into the game to win. Riga defended well last week. Hopefully we can score a little bit earlier. We will concentrate on what we can do in our game."




    ME on #CelticFC's current form: "I think we're getting there. I'm never satisfied there's always things we can do better."


    ME on
    @10DavidTurnbull
    : "He looked sharp from day one. You see that in the game against Hibs and he had a great assist. We have a lot of quality players, I'm just happy I'm not the manager and don't have to pick the team."


    ME: "It's healthy competition for us and it makes you better. You step up your game to play as many games is possible.

    His ball control has been very poor the last few games. Very heavy touches today when compared to Rogic and Turnbull he's definitely needs to work harder on this aspect of his game

    Him up front with Edouard doesn’t work.

    If we are playing the 352 and he is playing he has to be the number 10. Then it has to be Edouard and one of Ajeti/Griff/Klimala up front who will get in behind, get in the box and stay forward to keep the centre backs occupied.

    Edouard and Elyounoussi both like to drop deeper and drift about which made it easier for the St Johnstone defence today as no one was on the centre backs, trying to get in behind or staying inside the box to keep the defenders on their toes.

    ME: "Like everyone else, I’m looking forward to this game. It would be nice if the fans were there but that doesn’t take away how huge the game is."

    ME: "We have a big squad and good strength in the squad, and I’m sure everyone who plays will do everything for the club, I’m not concerned about that."


    ME: "It doesn’t matter who we play against, it’s the same mission. Tomorrow we want to do everything we can to win and we’re fully prepared for it.


    ME: "I played 90 minutes on Wednesday with my country, travelled yesterday, but by tomorrow I’m certain I’ll have fresh legs. We’ve done everything to be prepared, that won’t be a problem.

    ME: "It’s still early, but these games mean a lot to both clubs and their fans. You want to set a marker, you want to go out and have a good game and a performance and a good win. There are so many games left, every game is important.

    ME on playing up front recently: "I enjoy it out there, I like to come in between the lines. I like to be in front of the box, to get a shot away, I’ve enjoyed being up there so far." #
