    Ange has also seen it, 3 games out of 3 he’s let us down defensively. One sending off, one letting a man run off him at a set piece to score and two awful all round defending for simple straight forward play against the Czech’s. But aye he got an assist makes up for it.

    Like Eddie he shouldn't be in the first eleven and if he's in the team again today then it's the first time I will start to question Ang decision making .

    Apparently there’s been interest shown in him, but he’s settled here and doesn’t want to move.

    He’s one that we could really do with getting off the wage bill in my opinion.

    I don’t know about that, even if he’s not playing much he’s still a decent influence in the dressing room. Can do a job domestically in two positions.

    He’s also probably really helping Abada to settle in, Abada doesn’t speak English and I don’t think we can underestimate the benefits of a 19 year old having an experienced compatriot in the squad.

    Pretty certain he will be going nowhere.

    He enjoys living in Scotland it seems. And is also picking up a very good wage for playing about 5 games every summer.

    He’s not good enough to play for us against anyone outwith the bottom 6 and he’s paid far too handsomely just to be kept around to be Abada’s buddy.

    We need to bring in a centre half in before the transfer window closes or bitton could be back playing at the back if there's a injury to Welsh or starfelt .

    Agreed. I do not see Biton being on the move before tomorrow night's deadline. Which for me I am ok with. There has to be some squad depth and Biton gives us that so I am fine with him being part of the squad going forward for this season. He has 2 years left on his current Celtic deal so maybe we look to sell him next summer but it may well be he is with us for another season after this if he has no interest in moving.

    His best position is as a metronome just in front of the defence. With McGregor in the team there’s no way he’s ever getting a look in in the midfield anyway. He’s good on the ball, comfortable in control and can get it out of his feet quite fast but he doesn’t have the physical attributes to be anything more it seems.

    McGregor hasn't had a proper rest in ages. If Bitton must play somewhere, it's his natural role. Is next game Ross County? Good time to do so.

    His best position is defensive midfielder and he can score the odd screamer he's not a bad player he's just not a defender.

    I think he will surprise a few people this year. We are a little bit short of midfield options and we now have Jullien, CCV, Welsh, Starfelt, Scales and Murray as centre half options so we won’t see Bitton back there again.

    Some people forget what he’s capable of in midfield. He starts for Israel still. I think he is a very useful squad player to have around.

    He’s also been a model pro for us I would say.

    I can see him playing against Raith rovers in the holding position and give McGregor a break .
