    What's the point with this player he's that * we rather play a midfielder upfront and don't know how long he's got left on his contract just pay him off if its under 18 months left .

    He may well be *, but I think we'll have to start him or young Jack on Weds. Even if he's doing nothing having a CF will allow Rogic and Sinclair to play in their natural positions and (hopefully) thrive

    Been trying to punt the guy since Brendan came in. Been out on loan and got sent back early. Should never have signed the guy in the 1st place.

    Saturday summed him up for me. In his wee cameo, we had an overload break-away. The ball went to Ciftci on the edge of the area, miss controlled it and the defender managed to block his pooder puff shot.

    Chance gone,just like his time at Celtic. Not good enough for Celtic.

    Did he go out on loan as cover for an injured player in Poland?
    Ciftci played every week for the first six weeks over there. Maybe when the injury clears up, Ciftci's on the bench. Couple of games he gets the last ten minutes. When he's not in the team they play worse. Concede 11 goals in five and score only once.
    So it might be wrong to suggest Ciftci went over, flopped and that was it.
    Season before that he missed games from suspension through the sports court, went to Turkey and got games. Second game in his team are 1-0 down. He comes on at half-time, they score three goals in 24 minutes. 25 minutes later, he gets a red card, for abuse.
    Anyway he got games and he played in a 4-2-3-1, with him sitting in front of two holding midfielders, two wingers either side, striker up ahead.
    That maybe wasn't a bad loan move at all.
    So he can also play right wing and i'd suggest that's where he's best suited to playing.
    He scored at home against Galatasaray in a 4-3 win, 1 goal in 4 as a striker off the bench. They lost games when he played left wing, but the games were close and they did score goals.
    I never followed his travels abroad, but although he's not done so good last season it might not have been quite as bad as some might think. Certain places in Europe the Turks get a hard time, so Poland isn't an easy move for anyone.
    He can certainly leave if someone can pick up his wages. A bad signing, but not the worst player in the league by a long margin.

    We need to start giving him game time to put him on the shop window! What clubs going to want him if hes stuck in our under 21s the whole season?!? I think he will eventually move back out to Turkey

    We have to face the fact no one will pay money for him. Terminate his contract and get him out as it's not doing us, or him, any good still being here.
